These Vegan Biscuit BLT’s with Tofu Bacon are my new favourite way to switch up the classic BLT on toast. I have been on such a biscuit kick lately for strawberry shortcake (recipe in my first cookbook) as well as breakfast sandwiches. I decided we needed another recipe on the blog to make use of biscuits… enter: Vegan Biscuit BLT’s with Tofu Bacon. Homemade fluffy, buttery biscuits, layered with smoky maple tofu “bacon”, greens and tomato. I added a sweet chili mustard, but feel free to do the classic mayo as well. These biscuit sandwiches are the ultimate comfort food that are sub and easy to make, and completely addicting!
Homemade tofu bacon:
Making your own vegan bacon with tofu is actually super easy. All you have to do is press the firm tofu to remove excess moisture -I just use a clean dish towel. Then, let it sit in a simple marinade of soy sauce, smoked paprika and maple syrup. It will soak up all that good flavour quickly because we pressed it. Then, fry in a pan until crispy on the edges. Its so delicious and works well not only on these biscuit BLT sandwiches, but also on pasta, salad, other types of sandwiches and burgers!
The biscuits are just my simple extra-flaky cheddar buttermilk biscuit recipe without the cheddar! Of course, you can add cheddar if you like, it would be so delicious! I made them sort of “rustic” by forming them into round biscuits by hand so they are uneven and sort of messy looking, but you can roll them out and cut into even biscuit shapes if that’s more your style.
