6 Store-Bought Vegan Bacon Brands to Buy
Move over omelets and avo toast, there’s a new bacon in town!
Get ready to side up all your favorite breakfast foods with these vegan bacon brands! The plant-based protein powerhouses fit perfectly into your lineup of loaded oatmeal, JUST Egg omelets, house-made avocado toast, and more. Whether you work them in alongside those home-cooked hash browns or fit them into a “bacon, egg, & cheese” biscuit, these 6 store-bought vegan bacon brands are the perfect way to start your day.
Lightlife’s Smart Bacon packs 5g protein per two-slice serving. This soy-based breakfast staple offers a delicious smoky flavor and 0g saturated fat. We’re loving these with the brand’s Maple Bacon Waffles recipe and a cup of fresh fruit on the side.
With 4g protein per slice, this plant-based bacon alternative brings the flavors of hickory, sage, and garlic. Sweet Earth’s Benevolent Bacon comes refrigerated or frozen and contains 60% less sodium than its meat-based counterpart. Try it with Vegan Mac and Cheese for a Sunday brunch or add it to a BLT sammy.
Tofurky’s Smoky Maple Bacon starts your day right with marinated tempeh strips loaded with 13g of protein per six-strip serving. Yes, six strips! Finally, a serving size we can get behind. Need a dish to pass at the next family potluck? Try Tofurky’s Jalapeno Bacon Cornbread. Even the non-vegan fam will be delighted!
Don’t care for tempeh or other soy-based bacon? Try Upton’s Naturals Bacon Seitan. At 15g protein per serving, this non-GMO, kosher powerhouse goes great with Vegan Breakfast Totchos. Or keep your morning simple with a couple of slices alongside a tofu scramble.
Yves Veggie Cuisine
Yves Veggie Cuisine brings home the vegan bacon without all the cholesterol and fat of its meaty alternative. This brand boasts 14g protein per three-slice serving and contains no trans fats, no artificial colors, and no artificial preservatives. We like it next to some Domino’s Cinna Stix. Yes, please!
Looking for a gluten-free option for your morning meal? Try Hooray Foods for mushroom-based bacon with a hickory-smoked taste. Made of eight simple ingredients, this brand sides nicely with a stack of GF pancakes and your morning cup of joe.
