Tempeh Breakfast Sandwich

The tempeh can be cooked ahead of time and added in the morning. this sandwich also makes a great vegetarian lunch! Be brave try some tempeh and let me know your experience with my tempeh bacon recipe!


  • 1/8 cup maple syrup or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke or smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  1. Mix maple syrup or brown sugar, liquid smoke or smoked paprika, vinegar, garlic powder, and pepper in a 9 inch pyrex pie plate.
  2. Take the block of tempeh and cut it into strips that are about 1/4 inch thick and marinate it for about 30 minutes. Turn it over once. Heat skillet and add the olive oil.
  3. Add tempeh (keeping remaining tempeh in plate) and cook about 2-3 minutes and turn over.
  4. Cook a little more. I like to add the rest of the marinade and cook this flavor into tempeh.
  5. When browned on both sides, take out of skillet. Makes enough for 3-4 sandwiches.
  6. To assemble sandwiches: put on toasted bread, add lettuce or other salad greens, tomato and mayonnaise and mustard.
