Cinnamon french toast, slathered in Nutella, topped with crispy bacon and pressed into a panini… does anything sound more heavenly than that? I think not!!!
Ever since I purchased my panini press on Black Friday, the idea of a breakfast panini has been floating around in my mind. I eventually decided to combine three of my favorite things into one incredible sandwich while making brunch for my roomie and his girlfriend this weekend! Let me tell you, no one was upset about this creation!
Ingredients (makes 3 paninis)
- 6 slices bacon
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (or your choice of milk)
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 6 slices french bread
- 3 tbsp butter
- 6 tbsp nutella
Begin by frying up the bacon. Next, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
Soak the bread well in the mixture then add to a warm skillet over medium heat.
Cook lightly for 1-2 minutes per side, then flip. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes then remove from the pan. Allow to cool slightly then spread one side of each french toast slice with butter and the other side with nutella.
Top each slice with one piece of bacon broken in half.
Put the halves together to make your sandwich and place into the panini press.
Press and allow to cook for 5 minutes, then remove from the panini press and serve.
Hello breakfast from heaven! Now it’s time to dig in!
