Make brunch at home with these Vegan Pesto & Egg Breakfast Sandwiches. The perfect combo of vegan eggs, cream cheese, spinach & pesto.
I have been on a bit of a brunch kick these days - probably has something to do with spring being right around the corner! And since we're still mostly in lockdown mode, I like making my own brunch at home. These sandwiches are everything you could want from a restaurant, but super easy to cook up at home!
How to make Vegan Pesto & Egg Breakfast Sandwiches
Making these sandwiches is super quick - especially if you use pre-made pesto. Start by cooking up some garlic and thyme in olive oil over medium heat. This is going to give us that fancy "restaurant-flavor" at home. Next, add vegan egg and scramble. Once the vegan eggs are just perfectly cooked through, remove them from the heat.
If you can't find vegan eggs at your store, you can swap it for your favorite tofu scramble recipe.
Next assemble the sandwiches by buttering the outside of each slice of bread and then adding a layer of pesto, vegan cream cheese, spinach and the scrambled vegan eggs. Place the sandwiches in a hot pan and cook until both sides are browned.
How to serve Vegan Pesto & Egg Breakfast Sandwiches
Take the hot sammies out of the pan and cut down the center. Serve them with hot sauce, ketchup or even more pesto!
These sandwiches are best served right away, but I did reheat leftovers the next day and they were still very tasty! If you don't plan on eating it all in one sitting, you may want to leave the spinach out.
