Reviews for Prosciutto Egg Panini
"We had these for breakfast - I really liked the flavor of the maple mixed with the mustard - slightly sweet and tangy at the same time. Nice complement to the eggs and ham. Although there were mixed reviews about the onions in the eggs at our house, we agreed that the sandwiches overall were really tasty."
"I modified this quite a bit, for one thing, my family likes a little bigger portions. However, the basics remained mostly the same. Great tasty quick dinner."
"I would like to try this again without the syrup...I found the maple syrup taste odd, and felt it overwhelmed the taste of everything else in the sandwich."
"I used deli ham instead of prosciutto and loved these. Great weekend breakfast for the family."
"This was a nice change of pace from the usual bacon or sausage and egg sandwiches I usually make. I used 4 eggs instead of the 3 eggs and 2 egg whites. I also don't have a panini maker or indoor grill, so I just heated the sandwich on a griddle on the stove."
"Delicious egg sandwich. My husband and kids made it for me on Mother's day and it was superb!"
