Hi friends! Thank you so much for the sweet hair compliments and for letting me know what you’re up to this month 🙂 Hope you’re having an amazing September so far <3
When I was in LA a few weeks ago for the IDEA conference, I had the BEST breakfast sandwich I think I’ve ever had. We stayed downtown, which I learned the hard way doesn’t have a ton of shopping or awesome food options nearby — a lot of places were cab distance but not quite walking distance. I also found out that walking around Downtown LA by yourself is a little creepy. I did what I usually do and wore sunglasses, pretended like I knew where I was going (I kept repeating the directions in my head while I walked), and tried to find something local and delicious for my first meal, which happened to be after a mind-blowing 3-hour nap.
There was a Huffington Post article featuring some eats near the conference and when I saw “Badasserie” I knew that was one the one.
It was an all-vegan spot -I’m not vegan, but I love vegan food and restaurants- and the breakfast sounded out of this world. I was kind of surprised when I got to the location of Localita’s that it wasn’t a full-up restaurant but rather a food stand in a small storefront. Whenever I’m at a new place, I’ll usually ask the servers what they recommend. The guy working the counter suggested his favorite: a vegan sausage breakfast sandwich with “cheese” and maple syrup. Done and done.
The idea was simple: super savory with a hint of sweetness, but it’s a combo I don’t often enjoy in my usual breakfast rotation.
I’ve recreated it just a few times at home….
This isn’t really a “recipe” (just take your favorite English muffin, toast it, add sausage of choice, cheese and drizzle maple syrup), but definitely a combo worth sharing.
Some more of my favorite breakfasts:
class egg burrito (with sriracha and turkey bacon)
What’s in your current breakfast rotation? What’s the best restaurant breakfast you’ve had? We’re crazy about the brunch at Loew’s Ventana Canyon. Desserts, BBQ salmon and a Bloody Mary bar 😉
