Picture this: It’s Sunday morning and you just opened your eyes after a great night’s sleep to the sun peaking through your blinds. You take a look outside, notice the clear blue sky and hear the birds singing away. You think to yourself today is going to be a great day.

After a couple of yawns and a stretch or two, you unwrap your cocoon of covers and head out to the kitchen. It’s still quiet, with the scent of last night’s dinner lingering in the air. You think to yourself “that dinner was so delicious.”

You then make your way over to the kitchen counter and start brewing the coffee.

The smell of freshly ground beans fills your nose and instantly lifts your spirits. You pour yourself a cup and head on over to the couch to dive into your favorite book.

As you begin reading, your stomach starts to growl and now all you can think of is food…..but then reality hits…what am I going make for breakfast to match this perfect morning? 

I have your answer, this Vegan Sausage Breakfast Skillet.

Sunday Mornings are the Best

It’s a perfect time to relax, disconnect from our busy lives, and enjoy the beauty of the present moment. However, one event on Sunday mornings that I miss most is the big breakfast.

Before going vegan, this would look like a platter full of bacon, eggs, toast, and more; the works (to clarify, I don’t miss the foods themselves, but more the social aspect of sharing a big breakfast with friends and family).

However when I started eating vegan, I found a couple of breakfast staples and have stuck with those. Oatmeal, green smoothies, and the occasional pancakes.

It was just easier to stick to the basics while I navigated this new lifestyle.

But then I got thinking of skillet meals and how much I enjoyed them. I also thought of the how it could be enjoyed by everyone, bringing back the social breakfast I missed dearly. 

That’s exactly how this idea was born.

The Ingredients

I chose Field Roast because they are premier Vegan sausage brand; and most widely available. Their grain-based sausages come in several different flavors, my favorite being the Apple Maple Breakfast Sausage used in this recipe.

The sweet apple maple flavor in the sausage works well to balance the bold spice mixture. If apple maple isn’t available at your store, Smoked Apple Sage works well as an alternative!

So next Sunday when you’re craving a big breakfast, make this Vegan Sausage Breakfast Skillet. Chop of some veggies, heat up the skillet, throw it all together with the seasoning blend, and top it with a big spoonful of creamy guacamole. You will be well on your way to a perfect Sunday morning.

Cooking for more than two? Just double the ingredients!

    Great meal prep recipe! I highly recommend if you are looking for a savory yet simple breakfast. If you are like me and want to add spice I chopped up a jalapeno and threw it in the skillet topped with Tapatio for additional kick.

    Meal-prepped this for my lunches this week. Just put over a bed of romaine and topped with half an avocado, a drizzle of olive oil & a splash of Apple Cider Vinegar. This made for an AMAZING lunch! I already can’t wait to continue eating it all week 🙂 Would be delicious for breakfast too – obviously!
