Directions: Prepare breakfast patty according to package directions (either in a pan with nonstick spray, or in the microwave). Once cool enough to handle, cut patty into small, crumble-sized pieces. Set aside.
To make the gravy, combine Almond Breeze, flour, salt, pepper, and onion powder. Mix well. Place gravy and sausage crumbles in a small pot, and heat stovetop over a medium-high flame. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Once it reaches a boil, reduce heat to medium, and continue cooking and stirring for 1 - 2 minutes (until gravy thickens). Remove from heat. Season gravy generously with additional spices (to taste). Separate the english muffin into halves and warm in the microwave. Then pour the sausage gravy over the open-faced halves. Enjoy!

HG Tip! Although you'll only use the amounts called for, it may be helpful to dole out a little extra egg substitute and milk. And if you don't see green tomatoes out there with the ripe red ones, ask a friendly stock boy (that's what we did!).
Ingredients: 1 medium green (unripe) tomato, cut into 1/2-inch slices 1/3 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original), ground to a breadcrumb-like consistency 1 1/2 tbsp. cornmeal 2 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Original Egg Beaters) 2 tbsp. low-fat milk (light soymilk or Unsweetened Original Almond Breeze will also work) 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt 1/8 tsp. garlic powder 1/8 tsp. onion powder dash salt dash pepper Optional: additional spices, ketchup (for dipping)
Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the ground cereal, cornmeal and spices in a sealable container or plastic bag. (For a more flavorful coating, add extra spices.) Pour the egg substitute into a small dish.
Pour the milk into another small dish. Dip a tomato slice in the milk, and place it in the cereal/cornmeal mixture. Seal the container or bag, and shake until the slice is coated. Remove the slice and set aside, and then repeat with the remaining slices. Next, repeat this entire process using the egg substitute in place of the milk, coating your tomato slices with the crumb mixture a second time. (Before coating the slices in crumbs again, give 'em a shake so they're not dripping with excess egg substitute.)
Place the double-coated slices on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Pop 'em in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes, flipping the slices about halfway through cooking. Tomatoes are done when the outsides are nice and crispy. Enjoy! These are great by themselves, but they're also excellent dipped in ketchup!
