1.   See instructions for making toast to save time on meal prep in the oven!

For the smoky mushroom vegan bacon
1.   Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or well oiled the sheet pan.
2.  Finely chop the mushrooms into smaller pieces and place on sheet in a single layer.  Drizzle 1 tsp olive oil on top of mushrooms and season with kosher salt and optional pepper.
3.  Place mushroom in the oven and bake for 12- 15 minutes. After 12- 15 minutes, remove from the oven and toss or carefully flip mushrooms over.  Return mushrooms to the oven and continue cooking until browned and crispy, about 12-15 minutes.
4.  Remove from the oven. Place mushrooms in a bowl or plate and blot the oil off. Then toss with coconut sugar or maple syrup, garlic and/or onion powder, smoked paprika, and optional liquid smoke. Return mushroom back to the pan and in the oven to caramelize. about 5 minutes longer.
5.   Remove and set aside for breakfast toast topping.

Make your breakfast toast  
1.   Before returning the mushrooms to the oven the second time, prep the a sheet pan with your toast and tomatoes. Oil the pan and place toast on top and tomatoes in a foil pack or on another pan. The toast and the tomatoes pan will be placed on top or bottom rack. All can cook in the oven at the same time I like to place the toast and tomatoes in a separate pan and bake with the last 10 minutes. The tomatoes will blister and soften. The toast will brown.
2.   After the toast and mushrooms are ready, layer your ingredients.
3.   Spread 2 tablespoons of hummus on each piece of toast, then add a few blistered tomatoes, followed by vegan mushroom bacon bits, herbs, and cracked pepper, sea salt.
4.   Repeat for each piece of toast.

1.   I used whole grain gluten free vegan bread (larger sandwich slices around 80 – 100 calories each)
