  • 1 bag Siete grain-free tortilla chips plantain chips, or your favorite chips
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 lb breakfast sausage or 4 links maple sausage I used Whole Foods brand bulk sausage
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 4 eggs whisked
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 tablespoon chives minced
  • 1 cup raw cashew pieces soaked (see directions below)
  • ¾ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup + 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika


  • Place the cashews into a clean bowl. Bring a small pot of water to a boil, and then pour the water over the cashews to soak. The cashews should be fully immersed in the water. Set aside.
  • Heat a large pan over medium heat. Cook the bacon until crispy, and then place on a plate lined with paper towels. Crumble the bacon once it’s cool enough to handle.
  • Add the diced/crumbled sausage to the pan and sauté until cooked through. Place the sausage into a clean bowl and set aside.
  • Add the bell pepper to the pan and sauté until softened. Place the bell pepper into the bowl with the sausage. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Drain the fat from the pan, leaving 1 tablespoon to cook the eggs.
  • Pour the whisked eggs into the pan and as soon as they begin to set, use a spatula to push them away from the sides of the pan and fold them over, until they’re cooked to your liking.
  • To make the cheese sauce, drain and rinse the cashews. Place the cashews into your blender, along with the remaining “cheese” ingredients. Blend on high for 2 minutes, or until the mixture is completely smooth.
  • Top the chips with the crumbled bacon, breakfast sausage, bell pepper, scrambled eggs, avocado, chives and drizzle with the “cheese” sauce. ENJOY!
