I like to change up what is cooked for breakfast for my family. Typically, I eat a bowl of oatmeal after a banana and tea. However, this morning, I decided to make a full breakfast. I used Treeline Cheese for the spread on my bagel and Gardein for my meat-free sausage patties. In my Vegan Lasagna recipe, I used Treeline cheese and it gave my lasagna the right creamy, cheesy texture that I needed to mimic ricotta cheese. Their cheese has become a staple on my monthly grocery list. Unfortunately, they only ever have two of their flavors at my local Kroger: Herb-Garlic flavor and Scallion Flavor.
I prepared my bagel by spreading dairy and soy free butter on it, then toasting it in a 400 degree oven for about 5-8 minutes. While it was in the oven, I fried my sausage in a pan skillet with coconut oil. While they were cooking, I took out my spinach and chopped up an onion. After removing the sausages and transferring them to a paper towel to rest, I sautéed the spinach and onion. The bagel received a spread of the Treeline cheese, then I cut up my fruit (mango and Granny Smith apple).
The coconut oil enhanced the flavors of the Gardein patties and helped to give them a nice crunch around the edges. I don’t like soggy sausage patties. The Treeline cheese on the bagel was so clutch! It paired well with the sweetness of the mango. I think I see a cheese and fruit platter coming up!!
Please try the cheese and sausage patties for your next breakfast and use the Contact Page to let me know your thoughts!
