Breakfast Panini

It turns out that my parents read my blog. Which is totally cool! It’s not like I’m blogging about that one time I picked up a hitchiker or stole day of the week underwear from the store, but it does mean that they now have written proof that I borrowed their panini grill and plan to keep it forever. Darn it.

Before they demand it back I thought I would go ahead and whip up another panini. This was a totally last minute breakfast that was super simple to prepare and totally filling.

I scrambled my egg and fried a hard egg for my husband. I always bake a pound of bacon each week and then keep it in a baggie in the fridge for easy grabbing, so that really cut down on the time to make these! You could also use sausage patties or a slice of ham. I grated two yukon gold potatoes in my food processor and then fried those up into yummy hashbrowns. Pile all of that on some thinly sliced sourdough bread with a big helping of sharp cheddar cheese, pop it on the panini grill, and you’ve got breakfast.

This was so simple and so tasty!
