Sometimes you just want to splurge and go out for breakfast. I fell in love with this dish while I was visiting Pensacola Florida. There is a super trendy cafe in the square called The Leisure Club that makes Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea and best best panini's I've ever had. They also sell a local favorite, High Road ice cream.
The roasted red pepper breakfast panini I had was so good that I wanted to recreate it to make at home after I got my amazing panini press. So I made it for my mother in law on Mother's Day this past year and they were just as mouth watering.
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Line a backing sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. The roasted red pepper will make a big mess. Roast your red peppers for 30 to 40 minutes or until the outside skin is charred. Allow the pepper to cool completely. Peel the skin off and then dice the red peppers. Scramble your eggs with a touch of milk to make them fluffy. Toss in your diced red pepper to infuse the flavor with the eggs. Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix your softened butter together with the italian seasoning until it's nice and blended. Make sure your panini press is on and getting warm. Spread the herb butter over the sourdough bread. Place the scrambled egg and red pepper mix onto the bread and place it in the panini press. You can add other things like cheese or spinach to your breakfast sandwiches, but they are good without them.
Serve with delicious mimosas for an amazing brunch!
