Via Skinny Ms

Fall is such a great time of year to enjoy warm sandwiches!  Great for lunch or dinner - and we even found a breakfast panini for you!  So pull your panini press out of summer storage or fire up the stove and give these delicious paninis a go!  Enjoy!

Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Panini
Yields: 2 servings Serving Size: 1/2 sandwich

2 slices whole wheat bread
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
1 Roma tomato, thinly sliced
8 fresh basil leaves
Pinch of kosher or sea salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Spread olive oil with a pastry or basting brush over two slices of bread. Sprinkle each with salt and pepper.

Place one of the bread slices, oil-side down and top basil leaves, tomato slices, and mozzarella. Top with other piece of bread, olive oil side up.

Place a heavy-bottomed skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat or use a Panini press.

If using a skillet, press down with lid to flatten sandwich a bit. Cook for about 2 minutes, until golden on the bottom, and flip. Repeat on other side.

Bacon and Eggs Biscuit Breakfast Panini
Via Wine and Glue

Bacon and Eggs Biscuit Breakfast Panini
Yield: 4 paninis

4 eggs
4 egg whites
2 T cream 
1/4 t garlic salt
6 slices of bacon
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 refrigerated biscuits (Pillsbury's Grands were used), cut in half and pressed thin

Mix the eggs, egg whites, cream, and garlic salt. Whisk and then cook the eggs until light, fluffy and cooked through.

Cook the bacon and set aside. (These steps can be done ahead of time, keeping the cooked ingredients in the refrigerator until ready to make the panini.)

Cooking the paninis one at a time, spray the panini press then layer them with half a biscuit, about 1/4 of the eggs, two heaping tablespoons of cheese, the bacon, and then the other half of the biscuit.

Cook then until the panini press light turns green, keeping a close eye on it so that it does not burn.
