Vegetarian English Breakfast: Baked Tomatoes, Beans, English Muffins

Sharon Palmer

Every time I’m in England, I am enamored by the traditional English breakfast, which typically includes baked beans in tomato sauce, baked tomato half, mushrooms, sausage, and toast. My vegetarian English breakfast variety skips the sausage in lieu of only plants.

I made a California version with avocado slices and served it with an English muffin—though my English friends remind me that in England there is no such thing as an “English muffin”—that’s an American invention. This hearty plant-based breakfast is so satisfying!
