It is the last Sunday of the month…which means…we eat!
I made these….
Breakfast Paninis and Monte Cristo Sandwiches! So easy and quick and since there is such a variety at our Sunday Breakfasts, I cut mine in to quarters so that everyone could partake of everything!
Make your Breakfast Panini and flavor yours with your favorite breakfast items. These seem to be a hit.
Bacon and Egg Paninis
(serves 4 or if you quarter them like I did, a SS class!)
4 egg whites
2 Tbsp cream
1/4 to 1/2 tsp garlic salt – to taste
6 slices of bacon (but I actually used more to make sure I filled them up – I actually had 4 half slices on each panini so 2 whole slices per panini)
3/4 cup shredded cheddar (I didn’t measure – just piled some on each one but not overpiled)
4 refrigerated Grand biscuits, sliced in half through the thickness of the biscuit)
Fry bacon till done – (I like to do mine in the oven!)
Once biscuit is sliced in half through the center, roll biscuit halves out on lightly floured surface until thin.
Mix eggs, egg whites, cream and garlic salt. Scramble eggs until light and fluffy and just cooked through.
Fill one side of flat biscuit with 1/4 egg, strips of bacon and about 2 Tbsp. cheese and top with other half of flat biscuit.
Spray panini press; cook until done. Watch and don’t let burn. Here is one that is all done with another one ready in the background to go on the panini press.
The Monte Cristo Sandwich was not made in the panini press but was just as equally easy. Since it calls for thick sliced baked ham, I decided to use the Carving Board brand Ham and it worked great plus made for a pretty hefty filling sandwich. I also cut this sandwich into fourths.
4 slices bread (sturdy)
2 Tbsp mustard
1/2 lb thick sliced baked ham (I used one pkg carving board ham and the bread I used was large sliced
Gruyere Cheese, shredded (I used about 1/2 of an 8 oz. pkg grated)
2 Tbsp Butter
Beat eggs with salt and pepper, to taste.
Assemble sandwich with mustard, mayo, ham, cheese, salt, pepper. Compress sandwich.
Over medium heat, melt butter in skillet. Dip sandwich in egg. (see my little line-up in the pic? Sammy, egg to dip in? and skillet to throw them in!)
Brown till crisp on one side, turn and crisp on the other side. (I added a smidgen more butter after I flipped mine but it may be because I used my gynormous skillet and my butter went all over the place). Serve and enjoy.
And here’s my platter of paninis and sammies!
Nice and crispy and warm and ready for Sunday School. Make something different this week. Maybe even throw a panini in there somewhere. Have a great week!
