Breakfast can be difficult for new vegans. So much of what we are used to eating for breakfast involves some type of animal product or another. It’s a very tough meal to eat out at a restaurant without resorting to fruit or potatoes only. However, at home, it’s a different story. There’s a variety of meal options that aren’t difficult to make yourself. One of my favorite easy recipes is Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s Fronch Toast from the Post Punk Kitchen website.

You can use many types of vegan bread, by my favorites are sourdough and French bread. They take the batter well without getting soggy. When I was a kid, my mom always made French toast using an egg and milk wash as opposed to a flour based batter, but this is a great version as well. In fact, Eric prefers it!
Also pictured are some slices of Tofurkey Italian Sausage. They are really tasty and go well as a side to Fronch Toast. I have since found that slicing the sausage in larger chunks works better. Slicing too thin causes the sausages to overcook.
Try this out with some orange juice. It makes a terrific weekend meal!
