Holiday breakfast recipes usually feature eggs, casseroles, french toast, or waffles. This breakfast recipe is one that can be made and even served in small slices along with some nice breakfast pastries or warmed fruit.
The recipe comes from CuisineAtHome.com. One of the most important steps to this recipe is the choice of bread used for the panini. The bread needs to be a sturdy loaf that slices about 1/2 inch thick.
This recipe can be easily adapted to include a variety of cheeses or even meats. This is how I made the breakfast panini.
Using 4 slices of sourdough bread, spread margarine one side of each slice. Cook 2 eggs to form a flat omelet. Place 2 slices of the margarine covered bread/margarine side down on a panini press. Then place the cheese and prosciutto on top. Next place 1/2 of the cooked egg on each half. Top with the other bread slices, margarine side up. Close the panini press and grill until cheese is melted through. These breakfast sandwiches can be made 1/2 hour ahead and kept warm in the oven prior to serving with the warmed fruit or fruit platter. This is great for a holiday breakfast sliced into sections. Add a glass of champagne and suddenly you have a party!
