Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 6 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 8 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 teaspoons butter

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, egg whites, milk and onion. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add egg mixture; cook and stir over medium heat until completely set.
  2. Combine mustard and syrup; spread over 4 bread slices. Layer with scrambled eggs, prosciutto and cheese; top with remaining bread. Butter outsides of sandwiches.
  3. Cook on a panini maker or indoor grill for 3-4 minutes or until bread is browned and cheese is melted. Cut each panini in half to serve.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Unless otherwise specified, Taste of Home recipes are tested with lightly salted butter. Unsalted, or sweet, butter is sometimes used to achieve a buttery flavor, such as in shortbread cookies or buttercream frosting. In these recipes, added salt would detract from the buttery taste desired.
  • Sharp cheddar cheese has been aged longer than regular cheddar. As cheese ages, its flavor becomes more pronounced. Using aged cheese in a recipe can add complexity and rich flavor, even to humble favorites like mac ’n’ cheese.
