I'm not one of those people who ever skips breakfast. As a registered dietitian, I know the importance of starting the day with a nutrient-packed meal. And on a personal note, I would get hangry really, really fast if I didn't eat till lunchtime!

 

This breakfast is one of my favorites because it feels fancy, yet is super simple to make. It features protein-rich eggs and mozzarella, fiber from flatbread and tomatoes, and a burst of fresh flavor from basil.

 

If you don't own a Panini press, no problem! You can use a cast-iron grill pan, pressing the lid of a pot on top of each side of the sandwich to form grill marks.
