Vegan Breakfast Hand Pies in Des Moines, Iowa

Breakfast Hand Pies from Domestic Bones

We're partnering with Domestic Bones to bring you a four-pack of vegan Breakfast Hand Pies! Filled with our maple breakfast crumbles, potatoes, and cashew cheese sauce, topped with everything but the bagel seasoning.  Choose from regular or gluten-free crust. 

Add on some sauce made by us for dipping or pouring over the savory pies! NWK Sauce looks like a hot sauce, but is more flavorful than spicy — it's made from tomatoes, chilis, vinegar, and dates for sweetness. The tangy flavor is the perfect addition to the salty hand pies!

Contains soy & cashews. Regular crust contains wheat. Note that the gluten-free crust is not processed in a gluten-free facility, and may not be suitable for those with severe allergies. View the full ingredient list.
