On the weekends I like to cook a big breakfast. The thing is most breakfasts revolve around eggs. So I'm down to maybe two things I can make for breakfast - scrambled tofu with veggie bacon and biscuits, or pancakes with veggie sausage and hashbrowns and fruit.<br><br><br><br>
Do you make a big weekend breakfast? If so, what eggless dishes do you make?

breakfast tacos with potatoes & beans...yummy<br><br>

I like to mix and match these foods and the family loves it. Hope that offers some ideas.

mmmmm, big vegan breakfast <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
you can make breakfast burritos, filled with either a tofu scramble or vegetable scramble (very versatile, but chopped cauliflower and mushrooms with peppers, tomatoes and your favourite spices would be very good. maybe served with salsa and vegan "sour cream")<br><br><br><br>
fried mushrooms and baked beans work for the english and can work for you too, if you make them a bit more flavourful and less on the greasy side.<br><br><br><br>
frittatas and spanish omelets can both take the place of the main egg dish. they are filling and taste so good! easy to veganize by using silken tofu for the egg part, look for some recipes online <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
what else... waffles, homemade or bought (van's waffles are available in many places and most kinds are vegan)<br><br><br><br>
scones, muffins, fruit salad<br><br><br><br>
fresh bread with an assortment of tasty spreads (like roasted garlic spread, roasted peppers spread, homemade pesto, olive spread, vegan pate, toffuti "cream cheese", earth balance margarine, etc...)<br><br><br><br>
interesting hot cereal, like quinoa or bulgur with cinnamon, nuts, dried or fresh fruit and maple...<br><br><br><br>
there's also delicious asian things like chinese congee (rice base) or indian uppuma (with cream of wheat) that are kind of like porridge but better.<br><br><br><br>
i hope that helps!

My favorites are:<br><br><br><br>
1) pancakes<br><br><br><br>
2) breakfast rice (rice made with a mix of water and coconut milk, then add dried fruit, cinnamon and toasted nuts)<br><br><br><br>
3) breakfast burritos<br><br><br><br>
4) fresh baked breads, scones or muffins with a fruit salad<br><br><br><br>
5) anything with potatoes, usually sliced and fried with onions then add other veggies

Thanks so very much, everyone! I'm definitely going to try almost every one of these. They all sound delicious. The tacos and the burritos, and the mushrooms - ooh, I love mushrooms - and the bread, and coconut milk, and, and *drools all over keyboard* <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"><br><br><br><br>
I found the recipe for fronch toast and it called for chickpea flour. I wonder what the flour does? I don't remember if Whole Foods has chickpea flour - if I can't find any, would a different flour work?<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, these ideas are all great! Who needs eggs! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

the chickpea flower acts as a binder i think...<br><br>
here's a recipe for banana french toast that i found somewhere and heavily modified....<br><br><b>Ingredients</b><br><br>
2 large bananas (ripe)<br><br>
2/3 cups soymilk<br><br>
1 teaspoon cinnamon<br><br>
½ teaspoon nutmeg<br><br>
¾ teaspoon vanilla<br><br>
12 slices stiff wheat bread<br><br>
Oil for cooking<br><br>
Maple syrup<br><br><b>Directions:</b><br><br>
Blend together bananas, soymilk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Pour into a pie plate, and dip slices of bread into batter. Fry in a skillet with oil or it will stick to the pan.

Chickpea flour tastes 'eggy'. Wheat flour would give you the consistency, without the egg-like flavour. This could be a good thing, or you could add some nutritional yeast to make up for it.

often I have potato scones spread with margarine, half a tin of baked beans, and vegan sausages for my "weekend breakfast". I have coffee and orange juice with it and it fills me up.<br><br><br><br>
Another good filling breakfast is porridge/oatmeal.

This morning I had oatmeal with raisins, a touch of maple syrup, flaxseed and soymilk with some multigrain toast.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=5138" target="_blank">Pancakes</a> are always a good breakfast, especially with some veggie bacon or veggie sausages.<br><br><br><br>
Some soy yogurt on granola and sliced up banana is also quite yummy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

um...*shifty eyes* normally I buy them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> However, when I have leftover mashed potatoes from the night before I have had some success mixing a little flour into the mashed potatoes until it becomes 'dough like', forming this into patties and frying them in olive oil.

</div>
<br><br><br>
1/2 cup soy milk<br><br>
3 Tbsp. unbleached flour<br><br>
1/4 tsp. cinnamon<br><br>
1 tsp. vanilla extract<br><br>
4 slices whole-wheat or sourdough bread<br><br>
Fresh fruit, fruit preserves, maple syrup or powedered sugar.<br><br><br><br>
Whisk together the soy milk, flour, cinnamon, and vanilla.<br><br>
Dip the bread in the batter, turning it to coat both sides, then cook it until golden brown, in a nonstick skillet.<br><br>
Serve with fresh fruit, fruit preserves, maple syrup or powdered sugar sprinkled on top.<br><br><br><br>
I tried this recipe with wheat bread and sprinkled a touch of a cinnamon and powdered sugar - with maple syrup as well - when it was done and it came out pretty well!<br><br><br><br>
---<br><br>
(pasted from an old message board of mine)<br><br><br><br>
I haven't made these in a while, but last time I remember they were pretty darn good. I may try mixing up the recipe some once I get back home for winter break! can't wait to make these again...food on campus is kinda dull and usually repetitive.
