Favorite Breakfast sandwich

I love making breakfast sandwiches. My weekend fare is usually pretty simple, (bagel, egg, cheese, mustard, and canadian bacon or something along those lines.) but, I had an awesome panini this morning (from the office cafeteria no less), so I thought I would try to share with everyone, and see if there are any other great ideas out there to spice up my weekends. Sorry this isn't exact, but I tried to pay attention to how they made it. They used one of those big electric griddles, so I plan on trying it at home on my griddle.

Prosciutto/Havarti Breakfast Panini

Thin sliced prosciutto
Havarti cheese
Whole grain mustard
Thick sliced, panini bread. (Gotta find out what kind)

Beat 1 egg for each sandwich you are making, and thin it out with a little milk or water. I think you want the egg to be thin. Dice up the scallions very fine.
Cut and butter the panini bread, and set that on the griddle to begin toasting. After you flip it once, add a slice of havarti cheese on one slice and cover to let the cheese melt. Spread the whole grain mustard on the other slice of bread. While that is toasting, slowly pour some of the egg onto the griddle, and let it cook up while adding scallions. Fold over several times to cook through, and end up with a sandwich shaped layer of eggs and scallions. Just before final plating, drop some of the prosciutto onto the skillet and warm up slightly. Put the egg onto the bread and top with the prosciutto. Serve. Delicious!

          I see you like breakfast sandwiches? I love the idea of using left-overs from dinner, which if I think about it, could open up some creative possibilties. Dinner Friday nite, becomes even better breakfast Sat AM....

        2. Oh, I feel rather unsophisticated now...but this has definitely been breakfast for the last two weeks or so!

          Just ripe juicy pear, thinly sliced + natural peanut butter (but almond would probably be amazing) + cinnamon/nutmeg on really good whole wheat or other dark bread. Mmm.

          1. Not an egg guy.
            Almond butter, banana and honey on hearty multigrain bread.
            Smoked salmon, cream cheese, thin onion or scallions on everything bagel. original, huh?

              thanks for the non-egg suggestions. Despite my breakfast cravings, I gotta watch the cholesterol. And I LOVE smoked salmon!
