Prosciutto Egg Panini

With mustard, maple syrup, prosciutto and eggs, this is a yummy twist on the usual bacon-and-egg sandwich. Your family will agree that this is one breakfast worth waking up for! —Erin Renouf Mylroie, Santa Clara, Utah
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 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


  • 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.
  • Combine mustard and syrup; spread over 4 bread slices. Layer with scrambled eggs, prosciutto and cheese; top with remaining bread. Butter outsides of sandwiches.
  • 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 ā€™nā€™ cheese.

      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!
