What is Just Egg?

Just Egg is a vegan alternative to eggs that came out in 2018. The main ingredient is mung bean protein isolate, but it also contains canola oil, water, spices, and natural flavors.

It can be scrambled or used as a direct substitute for chicken eggs in many recipes including French toast, pancakes, cupcakes, frittata, and more!

I’ve used it before to make my vegan Just Egg quiche, which turned out wonderful! If you’re interested in more recipes that feature this product, check out my post for 13 of the Best Just Egg Recipes.

Ingredient notes

Ingredients for Just Egg French Toast.
  • Just Egg: This will be our egg substitute for making the custard mixture.
  • Bread of choice: You can use sourdough bread or whole wheat bread. Make sure to use day-old bread for the best results.
  • Non-dairy milk: I recommend using non-dairy milk that is thicker and creamier. Oat milk, soy milk, or coconut milk are all great options.
  • Coconut sugar: It adds a little bit of sweetness without being too overpowering or making the recipe overly sweet.
  • Vanilla extract: A little bit of vanilla adds a tasty aroma that goes a long way!
  • Spices: You’ll need ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and a pinch of salt.

Substitutions

  • Bread: If you want to make this recipe gluten-free, make sure to use gluten-free certified bread. Also, if you’re using oat milk, make sure it’s made from gluten-free oats. The rest of the ingredients are naturally gluten-free.
  • Non-dairy milk: You can also use almond milk creamer or any other vegan cooking cream you like. This will give the custard richness and even more flavor!
  • Coconut sugar: If you don’t have it on hand, feel free to use a coconut sugar substitute such as brown sugar or pure maple syrup.

How to make just egg french toast

To a large shallow dish (wide enough to lay a slice of bread), add Just Egg, non-dairy milk, coconut sugar (or maple syrup), cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

Whisk until it’s creamy and the spices are well distributed.

Take a piece of bread and dump it into the egg mixture. Soak for 2 minutes on one side, then flip and let the bread soak on the second side.

Remove it from the bowl and let any excess Just Egg mixture drip off.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat or medium-low heat, and lightly coat it with vegan butter or some vegetable oil. This is key to preventing it from sticking to the pan.

When the pan is hot, add the French toast and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown, then flip and cook on the other side.

Remove from the pan and repeat with the rest of the bread, until all slices are done!

Tips and FAQs

Where can I buy Just Egg?

If you’re in the U.S. or Canada you can find this product in most big grocery stores such as Walmart, Whole Foods, Target, Kroger, and many others. You can also order it online on Amazon , or through the Just Egg website.

What can you substitute for eggs in French toast?

Most vegan recipes for French toast use blended silken tofu or mashed bananas as a substitute for eggs. While that works, I’ve had the best results using Just Egg. It’s neutral in flavor (unlike using bananas), and gives a realistic texture to the custard.

What kind of bread works best for French toast?

When it comes to French toast, the type of bread you use has a big impact on the final result. Traditional french toast is made using thick slices of white bread or brioche, but you can also use French bread or any crusty bread of your choice.

Sourdough and heartier breads like whole wheat both work well in this recipe. Regular sandwich bread is not ideal, but it can work in a pinch.

The most important thing is to use stale bread that is at least a few days old. This will allow it to absorb more of the custard without getting soggy.

Can you make this Just Egg French toast ahead of time?

Yes! The easiest way to do this is to arrange your bread in a baking dish, then pour the egg custard evenly on top and cover it with plastic wrap. Store for up to 2 days in the fridge, then pan-fry the bread when you’re ready.

Can I use this recipe to make French toast casserole?

Yes, the process is the same as you’d prepare a regular French toast casserole. Arrange your bread in a baking dish, then pour the egg custard evenly on top and cover it with plastic wrap. Let soak overnight or for at least 2 hours. When ready, remove the foil and bake for 40 minutes in a preheated oven to 350ºF (180ºC).

Serving suggestions

Adding fun toppings to your Just Egg French toast not only gives more flavor but can also boost its nutritional value.

A handful of fruits and some nut butter can add fiber, healthy fats, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Here are some ideas:

  • Vegan apple honey
  • Powdered sugar
  • Maple syrup
  • Vegan whipped cream
  • Sliced banana
  • Dried orange slices
  • Peanut butter or almond butter
  • Fresh berries like raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries
  • Vegan chocolate spread or a drizzle of melted chocolate
  • Chopped nuts like walnuts, pecans, or sliced almonds

Don’t forget to serve it alongside a delicious morning beverage like fresh pressed orange juice or a vegan rose latte!

How to store leftovers

Let any leftover french toast cool completely, then transfer it to a container and cover it with a lid. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Freezer instructions:

Let any leftovers cool completely, then transfer them to an airtight container. If you’re stacking the pieces on top of each other, make sure to layer parchment paper in between to prevent sticking. Freeze for up to 3 months.

To reheat: Warm in a toaster oven or in a pan on the stovetop for 3-4 minutes.
