MAKE IT

Step 1
To make the vegan olive oil biscuits, preheat oven to 425° F. Drizzle 2 tablespoons oil into the bottom of a medium-sized cast iron pan and place into the oven to warm while you prepare the biscuits.
Step 2
Whisk together the almond milk, coconut vinegar and 1/3 cup olive oil together in a small bowl. Set aside to curdle for about 10 minutes.
Step 3
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and 1 teaspoon salt in a medium-sized bowl. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir with a rubber spatula until a soft dough forms. It will be really sticky.
Step 4
Remove the hot cast iron pan from the oven. Drop about 6 evenly-sized dollops of the dough into the cast iron pan, making sure they touch one another (which will help them rise properly). They don’t need to be perfect.
Step 5
Place onto the middle oven rack and bake for about 9 minutes. Remove the pan, then brush the tops of each with melted vegan butter. Return to the top rack and bake for 2-3 minutes more, or until the tops are evenly golden brown.
Step 6
While your biscuits are baking, make your tofu egg by whisking together 2 tablespoons olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, turmeric, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place the cut tofu slabs into the mixture and flip to coat. Place them into a cast iron pan preheated over medium heat, and allow to develop a golden color on all sides. Set aside and place a slice of cheese over them to allow the cheese to get a little melty. Quickly sear the bacon.
Step 7
Assemble the components onto the biscuits as desired and serve immediately.
