I call these ones High Protein Smoked Tofu Breakfast Egg Cups (in short: HPSTBEC). Ok, the name is clumsy, but I felt all the words needed to be in there. Feel free to suggest a better name in the comments 🙂

So these breakfast egg muffins taste like Tarte Flambee. You know, this kind of French Pizza that’s made from a thin layer of pastry with sour cream, chopped onions and bacon? Yes, exactly! Except that the smoked tofu jumps in for the bacon.

And beautifully it does! Not only taste-wise, but also protein-wise. In the recipe I suggest to have four muffins as one serving to really be satisfied.

This means you’d be getting 22 grams of protein, bam! That is really high for a vegetarian breakfast dish!

About Hauke Fox

I'm always on the lookout for these damn smart recipes. You know, those that only take a few minutes to put together and taste delicious. Vegetarian Cooking at home is a way to take back control over what I eat. I don't like what many companies do to animals and the environment with their products.


  1. This looks incredibly good. I can’t find smoked tofu. Is regular tofu ok?

    • Hi Cindy, yes that will still be fine – I’d maybe add some extra herbs to give it more of a flavour bang (or even a dash of smoked paprika if you can find it 🙂 ) enjoy!

  2. Just some small confusion – the standard serving size is 4 muffins?

  3. 5 stars
    These are incredible, and have become a breakfast staple for me. I whip up a batch on Sunday and eat them all week. Couldn’t be easier to make and they’re so delicious! This is my first experience cooking with smoked tofu and now I want to find a way to put it in everything. 🙂

  4. 5 stars
    These were great, thank you 🙂 how do you suggest I store the extra muffins ?
