Flatbread Breakfast Panini

IMG_7290

My family really liked the Tim Horton’s Breakfast Panini when we tried them, so I decided to make my own healthy homemade version – sorry Timmy’s but I have you beat! It is now a family favourite and the kids are asking for it all the time. We even had a breakfast for dinner night recently after weeknight swim lessons and had them for dinner. I love my Krups Panini Maker that my husband bought for me at Williams Sonoma nearly 10 years ago, great quality and excellent results. If you are as much of a sandwich lover as I am I highly recommend splurging on a Panini Maker.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pre-sliced multi-grain flat bread (I used Pita Break’s Multigrain Sandwich OneBun)
  • 1 large egg (preferably organic free run), lightly whisked
  • A few slices of lean sliced or shaved ham (bacon would be good too)
  • A few slices of light sharp cheddar cheese
  • Kosher (coarse) salt and freshly ground pepper for seasoning the egg

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat your panini maker (if you don’t have a panini maker you can just toast the flat bread before you assemble the sandwich).
  2. Heat a small non-stick frying pan to medium, and lightly coat with a very small amount of butter or other oil of choice when you cook egg to avoid sticking.
  3. Add egg to pan and lightly scramble top with fork to fluff it up (somewhat like for an omelette). Season with a pinch of salt and some pepper. I then work the egg lightly with a silicon spatula, pulling in the edges, and tilting the pan to let the runny egg on top run to the sides, and forming the egg into a circle or “patty” the size of the flat bread. Flip the egg over carefully with a flat spatula to fully cook the top. You could also just simply make a fried egg if you desire.
  4. Remove the egg and place on the flatbread. Top with ham and cheese and the top of the flatbread.
  5. Place the egg sandwich onto the panini maker and press for a few minutes until cheese has melted and the bread is toasted. Remove from panini maker and slice in half if desired.
