The flatbread Panini features protein-rich eggs and mozzarella, fiber from flatbread and tomatoes, and a burst of fresh flavor from the basil leaves. You only need five ingredients to make a flatbread breakfast sandwich:
Flatbread: You can use any type of flatbread that you’d like––choose gluten free if necessary. Flatout flatbread tends to be lower in calories.

I’m not one of those people who ever skips breakfast. After all, the effects of skipping breakfast aren’t so pretty.
On a personal note, I would get hangry really, really fast if I didn’t eat till lunchtime! And as a registered dietitian, I know the importance of starting the day with a nutrient-packed meal.
This Panini flatbread breakfast sandwich is one of my favorites because it feels fancy, yet is super simple to make.
Fill with scrambled eggs, mozzarella, tomato slices, and basil. Grill sandwich on Panini press until cheese is melted and the sandwich is hot. Cut in half, and serve immediately.
If you don’t own a Panini press, no problem! You can use a cast-iron grill pan to make a flatbread breakfast sandwich.
You’ll want to press the lid of a pot on top of each side of the sandwich to form grill marks. Use cooking spray, if you’d like, over medium-high heat.
You absolutely can. You can toast the flatbread on a baking tray in the oven or in a toaster oven.
Feel like turning the cooked egg mixture into an omelet instead of scrambled eggs? That’s absolutely fine.
