Prosciutto and Egg Panini

Proscuitto and Egg Panini

Serves 4.

So mine is more of a grilled sandwich and less of a panini, but you get the idea.  Any deliciously melty cheese will do.  And if you've already got sliced bread in the house, don't hesitate to substitute that for the soft rolls.  That's what I did!

large eggs
kosher salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
soft rolls, halved lengthwise
8 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
8 ounces Swiss cheese, thinly sliced

In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.  Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour in the eggs and scramble until cooked through. 

Divide the eggs among the bottom halves of the rolls. Top with the prosciutto and cheese and sandwich with the tops of the rolls.

Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter in a grill pan or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place two sandwiches in the pan.  Cook, pressing often with a spatula or placing a pan on top to weigh down the sandwiches, until cheese has melted and bread is golden, 4 to 6 minutes.  Repeat with the remaining sandwiches.
