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!
