YouTube stars Jenna Nicole Mourey (known professionally as “Jenna Marbles”) and Julien Solomita recently embarked on an epic journey to create the ultimate vegan breakfast sandwich, all while documenting it on Solomita’s YouTube channel. Solomita wanted to craft the sandwich around mung bean-based egg replacer JUST Egg, which he said was “quite mind-blowing” in its resemblance to animal-derived eggs. After visiting Bed, Bath & Beyond to purchase necessary components (such as several circle molds to create the perfect JUST Egg patty), the couple returned home to prepare the sandwich. Solomita baked vegan biscuits from scratch then topped them with Beyond Sausage shaped into patties, followed by a JUST Egg patty, sriracha aioli, and Follow Your Heart vegan cheese. “Oh, I love it. It’s literally like a sausage, egg, and cheese [sandwich] from McDonald’s,” Mourey exclaimed when sampling the final creation the couple dubbed “the breakfast sandwich of the future.” Rising to fame at the onset of YouTube with her humorous videos, Mourey adopted a plant-based diet in 2015 and frequently appears in cooking segments with Solomita on his YouTube channel. The couple collectively has more than 20 million YouTube subscribers.
