I also believe Time Machine won’t backup the EFI partition. Therefore macOS Recovery should recreate a default EFI partition when recovering from the Time Machine backup. A default EFI partition that would only contain Apple’s data, and not the Grub2 loader I have at the moment in the current drive.

Regarding you suggestion and the external reader, I need to check if I can find something cheap.
