Vegetarian Breakfast Sandwiches


Delicious veggie-filled breakfast sandwiches. I make large batches of these and keep them in the freezer. Take one out the night before and let defrost in fridge. In the morning, just nuke and you have a yummy hot breakfast.

4 sandwiches


  • olive oil cooking spray

  • 4 vegetarian sausage patties

  • 4 ounces fresh mushrooms, chopped

  • ¾ cup finely chopped fresh spinach

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • 1 pinch chili powder, or to taste

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 cup egg whites

  • ½ cup low-fat cream cheese

  • 4 English muffins, split and toasted


  1. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Cook patties until heated through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

  2. Spray skillet with more cooking spray. Saute mushrooms over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Add spinach, garlic, Italian seasoning, chili powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper; stir until mixed.

  3. Pour in egg whites and stir lightly until combined. Cook until starting to set, 2 to 3 minutes. Lift edges and let uncooked egg flow underneath. Repeat until completely set, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cut into 4 wedges.

  4. Spread cream cheese over English muffin halves. Sandwich a sausage patty and wedge of egg between each English muffin.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute 4 whole eggs, lightly beaten, for the liquid egg whites, if desired.

Use fat-free cream cheese, if preferred.
