Ingredients and Substitutions
- Vegan Breakfast Meat - Use your favorite or omit this ingredient if you prefer. I tend to use vegan sausage but vegan ham or even mushrooms would be great here.
- Bell Pepper - I like to use red bell pepper for a pop of color and because it seems to release less liquid than tomatoes.
- Greens - Fresh baby spinach leaves or kale add healthy vitamins and minerals.
- Vegan Cheese - Use your favorite vegan cheese here such as mozzarella, cheddar, gouda, etc. Nutritional Yeast would be tasty here as well!
- Just Egg - Two bottles of vegan egg replacer made by Just Inc. are easy and delicious in this recipe.
- Seasoning - We add some extra flavor with salt, onion powder, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and kala namak. Kala Namak is also known as black salt and it adds a nice eggy flavor.
How to Make Vegan Egg Bites
Here are some quick visual steps. Find the full recipe with exact measurements on the recipe card below.
Preheat the oven and cook the vegan sausage according to the package instructions.
Cut the vegetables and add them to a large bowl along with the vegan cheese shreds.
Once the vegan sausage has cooled, dice it and add the pieces to the veggies. Stir them together.
Grease a nonstick muffin pan.
Shake the bottles of Just Egg and pour them into a bowl along with the seasoning. Whisk the mixture together.
Pour some of the mixture into the muffin pan to form a thin layer in each spot.
Divide the veggie mixture across the muffin spots equally. Pour the remaining Just Egg mixture into the muffin tin.
Bake them for about 30 minutes or until the centers are mostly set. Let them cool and enjoy!
Tips For Success
- Make sure your muffin pan is truly non-stick to prevent the egg muffins from sticking to it. Some older pans may have lost their nonstick abilities with time. I like this ceramic-coated pan from Amazon.
- Try to keep the amounts the same as listed on the recipe card so that you have just the right amount of ingredients to fill each muffin. For example, swap 1 cup of vegan sausage for 1 cup of mushrooms.
- Start with a thin layer of Just Egg in the muffin tin so that each one has a solid base for structure.
- Don’t overfill the muffins. The mixture will rise while cooking and then come down as they bake. Take a peek halfway through to make sure they aren’t overflowing. If they are, take them out, wipe the pan, and put them back in the oven.
Recipe Variation Ideas
- Make them spicy with red pepper flakes and jalapeños.
- Try these with different vegan meat replacements such as vegan ham or vegan bacon.
- Change the flavor up with different veggies such as broccoli, green peppers, mushrooms, carrots, or onions. If the veggies are moist, pat them dry before adding them. If they are naturally tough, shred or pre cook them.
Storage & Reheating
Store these vegan egg bites in the refrigerator for 5 days or in the freezer for 3 months. Reheat them in the microwave until they're heated through. There's no need to thaw them if they are frozen.
