Vegan Breakfast Casserole

"I got the idea for this from a recipe in Vegan Planet, but I tweaked it quite a bit. You can either prepare this the day you eat it, or put it together the night before. If you do that, you'll want to let it come to room temp before baking it. Also, I was going to make some hashbrowns and mix it in with this, but I didn't have time. Just bake a potato, peel it, grate it, fry it in a pan with some veggie oil and layer it on top of the bread. My Chicago Diner gravy recipe goes really well with this."

  • Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook the garlic and onions until soft. Add the veggie sausage and crumble up in the pan while it browns. Add the peppers and cook until soft. Take off heat.
  • Grease a 9x13 glass baking dish. Spread the cubed bread evenly in the pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the tofu, soy milk, seasonings, and the cooked veggies and sausage. Pout over the bread and let it soak for 20 minutes.
  • Bake the casserole for 35-45 minutes, until everything is nicely browned. Serve plain or with gravy.

    My son’s girlfriend is a vegetarian. Christmas morning the kids came over for brunch. I made this and it was delicious! I added a layer of shredded hash browns over the bread. Also sauteed the onion, green pepper and garlic in olive oil. I swore I would never eat tofu. I used soft tofu in this and it was great!


I've been vegan since February of 2005, and I was vegetarian for almost a year before that. I love cooking vegan food. People always ask me, "What do you eat?" or, "Doesn't being vegan make it harder to cook?" Nope! In fact, I've found that going vegan opened up a whole new world of cooking for me. I've tried ingredients I otherwise never would have heard of, and found vegan products that are even better than their non-vegan counterparts. I love creating new dishes and recipezaar has been a wealth of inspiration. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
