Mc. Vegans

Take that mc.donalds! Who would have thought huh? Well I would have probably make these just for kicks even if they werent amazingly good and preety darn easy. I havnt had the real thing since I was 6 but alot of people say they taste really close.

Mc. Vegans (original recipe from VegWeb)


1 pound extra firm tofu
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package veggie Canadian bacon
Vegan cheese of your choice
Vegan English muffins

(optional)Margarine or Veganaise ( I like to use Miso Mayo instead)


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Take the block of extra firm tofu and press it to get as much of the water out as you can. After you do that you take a drinking glass which is about the same size around at the top as the English muffins are, cut around the cup (or if you want, press the glass into the tofu) so that the tofu comes out round in shape. Take the round piece of tofu and cut it in half horizontally, so you end up with two circular pieces. Take the two halves and cut those into thirds, so that you end up with six round pieces of tofu that are about 1/2 inch thick. If you don't want to make 6 English muffins you can cut the tofu into four pieces if you like, which will yield a thicker egg.

In a bowl, pour the apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and salt and mix together. Put the tofu in this mixture and coat both sides id also let it sit there for a few min. so it can soak the mixture up a little. Put the tofu on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes on one side, then flip and bake for another 10 minutes.

Place the veggie Canadian bacon on a large frying pan on a medium low to low heat, flip it often and don't allow it to dry up, as it will turn up on the edges.

After the tofu pieces are baked, turn off the heat and place a slice of the vegan cheese on top of each of the tofu rounds. Place back in the oven to allow the vegan cheese to melt.

Toast the English muffins, and butter them on both sides with the vegan margarine of your choice, or if you are using Vegenaise put Vegenaise on one side and margarine on the other. Place one of the tofu rounds and Canadian bacon slices between the English muffin halves, salt and pepper to taste (if you want) and they are ready to eat.
