Vegan Breakfast Wreath
I know it's a little goofy looking, but on the day after Christmas, my mom and I made breakfast wreaths! She got the recipe online using crescent rolls, which are surprisingly vegan (although, not the healthiest, but it's Christmas!). When my mom told me about it, I first thought we were making popovers, so I brought baked tofu for the inside. She had vegan sausage and cheese, and we got to work. Next time, I would like to make a big one with tofu scramble, which I feel like I have made before, but it's been a long time.
I cooked the baked tofu down in earth balance, tumeric, curry powder and cumin. I warmed up a couple vegan sausage patties and cut them up. Once it was all cooled, we assembled the wreath.
Here's what my mom's wreath looked like, which she stuffed with all sorts of non-vegan things that were quickly devoured by Josh and my dad. Theirs was really beautiful, and mine was ok. I worked with a smaller circle and piled the filling high.
Once all the stuffing was added, we baked per the package instructions. What came out was a really tasty treat!
This would be a great New Years breakfast! We served some pepper jam on the side, which my sister and I got my parents for Christmas.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year's Eve. We always throw a big party, but this year, Josh is on call. So, we're going to have a Terminator marathon, just the two of us, and keep it relaxed. I am making some snacks and some hoppin' john bowls tomorrow, so I'll be sure to take some pictures!
