Meet me at the VegBergers Drive-In!

Nothing beats driving up to a huge menu, pushing a magic button, and being hand delivered a piping hot breakfast burrito from a rollerskating car-hop. Whether you're eating this concoction as fuel for your morning or fuel for your hangover is your decision (hey, we're not judging!). All we know is that Sonic's Super Sonic Breakfast Burrito was screaming to be veganized.
Sonic's version of this savory breakfast creation includes "a medley of scrambled eggs, melty cheese, tater tots, diced onions, ripe tomatoes, and spicy jalapeno peppers all wrapped up in a warm flour tortilla." Sounds easy enough, right?

Super Vegan Breakfast Burrito
Rollerskates not included

2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Small Onion
2 Cubanelle Peppers (but any pepper will do!)
1 Package Extra Firm Tofu, well drained
2 tsp ground Cumin
1 tsp dried Thyme
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Salt
3 Tbsp Water
1 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1/2 tsp ground Black Pepper
1/4 cup grated Vegan Cheddar Cheese (Daiya works best!)
Salsa of your choice
Pickled Jalapeno Peppers
Baked Tater Tots
Burrito sized Flour Tortillas

1. Heat olive oil in skillet over Medium-High heat. Add sliced onions and peppers and sautee for 2-3 minutes.
2. Mix cumin, thyme, turmeric, and salt together in a small dish. Add water and blend.
3. Crumble tofu into skillet with onions and peppers. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring regularly until tofu begins to brown.
4. Mix in spice blend and stir. Add nutritional yeast and black pepper. Continue to cook for about 1 minute.
5. Stir in vegan cheddar cheese until melted. Remove skillet from heat.
6. Assemble Burrito -- Layer tofu scramble on a warmed tortilla with baked tater tots, salsa, and jalapeno peppers. Roll it on up!
7. Tip your car-hop and enjoy!

It's not just good...It's VegBergers good!

Peace, Love, and Tots,

Pam and KT
