Breakfast is a meal that is often tiresome to me. Scrambled eggs, oatmeal, protein shakes, repeat. This summer I’ve been trying to think outside of the box in the breakfast department.

We’ve been experimenting with different breakfast sandwiches. Fresh and comforting varieties that keep you full and focused all morning, and offer a little intrigue!

You know, not every breakfast sandwich has to include eggs, bacon, or sausage.

My latest addiction, the Ham and Cheese Breakfast Panini is built on fluffy airy Thomas’ English Muffins with lots of nooks and crannies. I filled those lovely little caverns with a savory spread made with whole grain mustard and cream cheese.

Then I piled on sliced ham and muenster cheese.

The sandwiches are placed in a panini press so the english muffins toast, and the cheeses can melt over and under the ham. If you don’t have a panini press, you can pop the breakfast panini in a toaster oven (or regular oven) at the same time and temperature mentioned below in the recipe.

Once the Ham and Cheese Breakfast Panini’s come out of the panini press, quickly open them up while the cheese is hot, and top them with cool slices of fresh avocado and a pile of alfalfa sprouts.

Place the lid back on top and serve warm.

The warm oozing cream cheese spread, melted muenster, and hot ham are a fabulous contrast against the crispness of the fresh produce.

These ingredients are held perfectly in place by the crusty english muffin, making a Ham and Cheese Breakfast Panini a marvelous on-the-go breakfast to take with you to work… or off on your morning hike.
