Ham and Egg Panini

Ham and Egg panini recipe

Our ham and egg panini is a great twist on scrambled eggs

Our ham and egg panini is a twist on scrambled eggs or ham and eggs.  This twist has all the flavor of these well know tried and true dishes but it elevates breakfast to a higher level. Pictured above is our ham and egg panini served with a small salad (yes, you CAN have salad for breakfast!)

Ingredients:

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup chopped red or green bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoons sliced green onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped deli ham
  • 3 eggs
  • black pepper and salt
  • 4 slices multi-grain bread
  • 2 slices Cheddar or Swiss cheese

Directions:

1. Spray panini griddle with cooking spray, heat to medium.

2.  In small skillet cook bell pepper and green onion about 4 minutes, or until they begin to soften.  Stir in ham.

3.  In a small bowl lightly beat eggs, add black pepper and salt to taste, pour into skillet with pepper, onion and ham.  Cook and stir about 2 minutes or until eggs are almost set.

4.  Lightly butter one side of each piece of bread; turn 2 slices of bread over.  Top each bread slice with 1 cheese slice and half of egg mixture.  Top with remaining bread slice, buttered side up.

5.  Grill sandwiches on panini griddle about 4 minutes or until cheese is melted and sandwiches are toasted.  Cut sandwiches in half, serve immediately.

Trust me, after you make our ham and egg panini, you will never think of scrambled eggs the same.  If you have a panini maker sitting on a shelf somewhere get it out and try one of our panini recipes that you can find on our recipe page on our website.  A panini maker is great for adding a twist to sweet or savory dishes, but what most people don’t know is it is something you can use for breakfast!

If you would rather have someone else do the cooking for you, give us a call at 434-846-1388 to book your reservation or book online and enjoy our legendary breakfast each morning.  We look forward to seeing you at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast.
