Breakfast Panini with Potatoes and Greens


  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • Leftover mashed potatoes
  • Leftover steamed greens
  • Condiments of choice


  • 1. Heat either a panini press or a dry frying pan/grill over medium heat.
  • 2. Assemble the sandwich. First, spread condiments on each slice of bread (such as mustard, hot sauce, or hummus). Then, pile on mashed potatoes and steamed greens.
  • 3. Sandwich together the two halves, and carefully place onto the surface of the hot panini press or in a hot frying pan.
  • 4. If using a panini press, close the lid and allow to grill for 5 or 6 minutes. If using a frying pan, press down on the top of the sandwich with a large spatula or heavy pan for 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • 5. Once the sandwich is grilled, remove from heat. Slice panini in half and enjoy!

Cooking Tips

  • 1. Instead of mashed potatoes, feel free to substitute any other leftovers you wish!
  • 2. For whole grain bread you could try Ezekiel bread.
  • 3. Suggested condiments: spicy mustard, oil-free hummus, or hot sauce.
