Denver Omelet Panini

"I was wanting something different for breakfast and was doing some browsing. I found a couple of recipes for omelet sandwiches but did not have the proper ingredients and was inspired to create this delicious breakfast treat. The bread I used was a green chili cheese bread; however any good quality bread cut 1/2 inch thick will work."

directions

  • To an 8-inch omelet pan, add 1 to 2 teaspoons butter and place over medium heat to warm.
  • Add the sliced onions and bell peppers, stirring until onions are wilted.
  • Stir in the diced Canadian bacon and cook until warmed.
  • Beat together the eggs and yogurt/sour cream, salt and pepper, pour over onion mixture and cook until bottom is set.
  • As the egg sets, pull cooked portion to the center allowing the uncooked portions to run to bottom of pan.
  • When omelet is set on bottom there are a couple of options, if you have another omelet pan the same size, you can flip the omelet into the other, you could put under the broiler the broiler for a few minutes to set or if you are really good flip the omelet and allowing it to finish cooking.
  • Lightly butter the bread with softened butter, cut omelet in half and using half for each sandwich place on unbuttered side of bread, top with shredded cheese and cover with remaining slice of bread, buttered side up.
  • Cook on preheated Panini press as per manufacturer’s recommendations until browned.
  • Enjoy!

    We really enjoyed this sandwich; I made it on my Cuisinart Griddler and used Egg Beaters. What a treat.Thanks for posting. I made it for 123 Hit wonders tag game.

    I used low-sodium bacon and cooked it first until crispy. Then I added it with the eggs. I used plain yogourt (2 big tablespoon). I used Kaiser bread and omitted the green pepper. It was a good breakfast. Will do it again. Thanks Paula. Made for 123 hit wonders.

    SOOOO good! I used about 2 tablespoons whipping cream (I really did not measure) in place of sour cream and did some other amount adjustements, used finely cubed cooked ham in place of the bacon, my DH loved this for lunch, thanks you Paula!...Kitten:)

I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
