I forgot that I have an unopened bag of vegg in my pantry. What should I make?! I'm not wild about tofu scramble, but do miss eggy stuff such as egg in a hole, souffle (impossible?), French toast, and omelettes.

What is egg in a hole? It sounds dirty.

It's the first recipe I ever learned, at 10 in school in England. You basically butter a piece of bread, cut a hole in the middle with a drinking glass, throw it on a frying pan, then crack an egg and throw it in the hole with maybe some salt/pepper/paprika if you are fancy. It sounds disgusting, I know, but it was kind of magical when I was a kid.

I think they called it something less dirty in England, but when I came back to Canada it was egg-in-a-hole.

eggs in a basket is a much better name for it.

My parents used to call them Popeye eggs.. which makes sense.

That looks really interesting. I'm going to try it to see if it really taste like a real egg. A beginner vegan here.

I made french toast twice with it. The first time, I didn't read the package, and soaked the bread a good long time in the
blender-mixed Vegg. Don't do that. (And it tells you not to). It was a soggy mess that never set up.

But. The next time I just barely dipped the bread in the mixture, and it was pretty great. Very much like french toast I remember from before. But holey crepe is this stuff pricey! I bought it online, thinking I was gonna get more in the package. So that's twice I didn't read about the product. I did really like it, though.

Huh. I never heard of this before. It sounds like that wouldn't really work with the Vegg. Or maybe it would with some tofu and the vegg? I dunno.

Eggs in a basket are awesome - they're just fried eggs on toast with half the eating work done for you already. I think a tofu based pourable omelet recipe would work best for that application, with maybe a dollop of Vegg in the middle for yolkiness.

Another vegg sandwich! Woooooooo!
I want to maybe try out a vegan omelette using it, but I'm not sure if i like it. I only ever had the real omelette twice in my life and after both times, vaguely remember enjoying it at the time but the following day I felt like I was going to be sick. Maybe eggs sit a little heavy.

When I was younger my parents called it "toad in a hole" and my sister and I thought they were saying "toes in a hole" so I grew up calling it toes in a hole.

It would work with the Vegg. You may just need to add a bit of flour to it or something. They have recipes on their website to make vegg spherical.

Me too. I think it kind of grosses me out. Vegg yolk in my blender makes me sad.

I am a pretty big fan of The Vegg - a little goes a looooong way. I used way too much the first time and it grossed me out. But then I made a vegg sarnie and it was tremendous:

Thanks! And how pleasing that you said 'barm' and not 'bap' :D (honk)

I got a free sample of Vegg in the post today along with the Vegg Cookbook, and I'm already loving it! French toast which tastes just how I remember it pre-vegan has been the highlight so far.

Back here again, I just had 2 tofu vegg sandwiches, I toasted the bread slightly in the pan after I assembled it. It was so good. Hence why I proceeded to make a second.

The Vegg is amazing stuff. I use it to make omelettes with mushrooms and spinach.

As I'm gluten and soy free it's hard to find recipes I can make though.

That sammich looks amazing!

I'm dying to try the Vegg. I need to see about getting some.

ETA: Has anyone tried making the equivalent of a poached egg? Like for eggs Benedict? I would love that!

Holy shiitake, I finally tried the Vegg. Had a package in my pantry for ages, and was making a rather boring tofu scramble post workout, and remembered it. Put one teaspoon mixed with water and BAM, my scramble is so much more 'eggy'

Loved it. Smelled like egg too, but did not taste much like it, since I put a ton of spices and herbs in my scrambles. Probably would have without the other stuff

I wanna try an omelette now. I bet even the omni would eat it. I don't have the cookbook though, anyone have a recipe?

Only used this so far to make french toast - best vegan french toast yet! I want to use it for tofu scramble, but I'm scared. Of this and the tofu. Vegan for half a year and not a scramble has passed these lips.

I used it to make an omelette and it just didn't do much for me. The VB versions are far superior imo.

I had bought it because I thought I could use it to replace the many eggs required in my beloved grandmother's Easter bread recipe, but having tried it in that omelette, I just am not hopeful it would work. sad face.
