Banana Breakfast Panini

This is such a fun new breakfast idea. Its easy and hits the spot first thing in the morning. 
You can eat it on the go like a sandwich OR you can eat it doused in syrup while sitting at the 
table. Either way.....its a HIT!

Banana Breakfast Panini
2 bananas, cut in slices lengthwise
6 slices heavy bread (deli, homemade or french)
2 eggs
1 c. heavy cream
1 t. vanilla
1 t. cinnamon
1 T. sugar

Whisk eggs, cream, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar together in a mixing bowl. Slice bananas and place them on a piece of bread. Place another piece of bread on top (so banana's are on the inside of the sandwich). Dip sandwich into cream/egg mixture, making sure each side is covered with the cream/egg mixture.

Preheat panini press (instructions on how to make these withOUT a press will follow these instructions) for 6 minutes or until "ready" light kicks on. Place sandwich in panini press and cook until bread is toasted and crisp (mine took approximately 3-4 minutes).

*To make sandwich without a press-assemble sandwich as directed above. Place sandwich in a frying pan sprayed with cooking spray. Place a smaller sauce pan (the heavier the better) on top of sandwich, pressing sandwich down (I placed a large can of tomato juice (still in the can) in my sauce pan to add more weight...you could use whatever you had) Cook until the one side is browned and then turn sandwich over, repeating if necessary. 

Dust finished panini with powdered sugar if desired and top with maple syrup...mmmmm!
