LOADED BREAKFAST PANINI

This loaded breakfast panini is perfect to start your day with, or to serve to guests for a special treat.

Leftover ham was the inspiration for my loaded breakfast panini.  My husband loves fried egg sandwiches, but doesn’t let himself eat them too often.  In the summer months he loves them with a slice of fresh tomato.  One morning while fixing breakfast, I saw the leftover ham in the refrigerator and put this sandwich together for him.

Here is the recipe and I hope you enjoy this breakfast panini. Continue reading LOADED BREAKFAST PANINI
