Egg & Bacon French Toast Panini Recipe

by on March 6, 2008

You can easily pull this indulgently-delicious breakfast sandwich together for yourself in under 15 minutes with ingredients you probably already have in the kitchen. French toast made with a hint of sweet maple syrup is grilled on the panini press and then filled with a two-egg omelet and smoky bacon. Any guilty feelings will quickly subside upon your first sweet and savory bite!

Egg & Bacon French Toast Panini

1 serving


  • 1 large slice sourdough bread, halved crosswise
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 2 slices fully-cooked bacon
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat panini grill to 375°F. In a shallow bowl, whisk together 1 egg, 1 teaspoon milk and maple syrup. Soak bread slices in egg mixture and transfer to panini grill. Grill for about 5 minutes until egg mixture is cooked and grill marks appear.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the 2 remaining eggs, the remaining teaspoon of milk and salt and pepper to taste. Pour into a medium-sized nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. When eggs appear cooked around the edges, fold over in half with a spatula and cook for another minute. Fold once again crosswise and remove from pan once eggs are cooked to desired doneness.
  3. Prepare bacon according to package instructions.
  4. Assemble sandwich by layering the bacon and omelet between the two french toast pieces. Enjoy!

Oh Ya! This has to be the combination of combinations! I will make this tomorrow morning. I think I may add some spinach to the sauteed eggs, and perhaps a few small veggies diced into the mix.

Thanks for sharing, love the idea.
