Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

This recipe was first discovered from the Strong Hearts Cafe located in Syracuse, NY. They were shown on the Vegan Zombie making what they called their "egg 'trick' muffin'. I altered the ingredients a bit to be enough for two sandwiches, and used a different sausage product then what they called for. We used a vegan white bun as shown below. 

2/3 lb firm tofu
2 vegan breakfast sausages
1/2  cup nutritional yeast
3/4  tsp turmeric
3/4  tsp garlic powder
3/4  tsp onion powder
1/2  tsp salt
vegetable oil

Mix dry ingredients together and coat pressed tofu rounds. Break apart sausage links (I used tofurky sausage links) and form rounds as best as you can. Cook coated tofu rounds and sausage patties in oil until browned. 

We tried to incorporate a cheese (pictured) but it was tasteless and not even worth mentioning. The original recipe called for Daiya cheese, but we're not big fans of that so we stopped buying it. This sandwich is really great without it.
