Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Panini

Pin It
Need a good breakfast for those on the run mornings?

Or even just something warm to send with the kiddos or hubby on the way out the door for school or work.

Well I have the breakfast sandwich for you.

One of our favorite breakfasts is the breakfast egg sandwich.

This time I decided to switch things up a bit from the regular egg sandwich on toast and came up with this awesome Breakfast Panini.

No worries if you don't have a Panini press you can always just use a skillet and place something heavy (like a 28oz. can of tomatoes) on top of a plate on top of your panini and voila you have a homemade Panini press.

Here's what you need:

2 eggs, poached or pan fried if you like
1 slice of american cheese or cheese of your choice
2-3 slices of crisply cooked bacon
1 Ciabatta roll
Butter for roll

To poach an egg place a 2 quart pan of water  (1/2 - 3/4 full of water) on the stove and cover with a lid and bring to a boil.

Once the water is boiling pour in 1 Tablespoon of distilled or apple cider vinegar and add your eggs one at a time to the water.   Keep water at a gentle simmer and cook for 2-3 minutes depending on how soft or hard you like the yolk.  I cook mine about 2-1/2 minutes for perfectly medium eggs every time.

Lift eggs out of the water with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.

Preheat your Panini press to 375 degrees or a skillet on medium high.

To assemble your Panini ~ Cut the roll in half, butter both sides of the roll and place the bacon on one side and the cheese and eggs on the other.
Place the top with the bacon on top of the eggs and place in a preheated Panini press or skillet and close the lid.
Cook for 3-5 minutes or until as crispy as you like it.  If using a skillet cook for about 2 minutes then flip and cook on the other side a couple of minutes.
Slice and eat.  Perfect for an on-the-go breakfast :)
