The Maniac

Recipe Details

2 slices King's Hawaiian Sweet Round bread (1 1/2" thick each)

2 slices bacon, cut in half

3 slices deli honey ham

1 Fried Egg (runny yolk preferred)

3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided

1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise

1/2 tablespoon dijon or spicy mustard

1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted

Step 1
Preheat panini press. If not using a press, a griddle pan can be used, but you will need to flip your sandwich to cook both sides; tricky but possible.
Step 2
Slice 2 - 1 1/2 inch slices of King's Hawaiian Round Bread. Spread mayonnaise on one slice, and mustard on the other slice of bread. Set aside.
Step 3
Cut 2 slices of bacon in half. Using a large frying pan, fry until crispy. Drain on paper towels and reserve. Discard all but 1 TBS bacon grease in frying pan. All bacon grease can be discarded and the pan can be wiped clean with paper towels. Cooking spray, butter, or margarine can be used, but this recipe is not for the faint of heart--so go for the gusto and use the bacon grease!
Step 4
Heat frying pan and cook egg to your liking. When done, remove from heat, but keep warm.
Step 5
On the mayonnaise slice of bread, arrange bacon evenly. Add ham slices and half of the shredded Swiss cheese. Gently lay egg on top, then remaining cheese. Top with second slice of bread (mustard-side facing inside of sandwich).
Step 6
Using silicone brush, lightly grease both sides of your heated panini press. Center sandwich and carefully close press--using spatula to keep bread slices from sliding apart. Cook until bread is toasted and cheese has melted.
Step 7
Dig in and enjoy!


Any kind of cheese (sliced or shredded) can be used--my son's second most preferred cheese is sliced American. Turning the lid tension down on your panini press (less tension) will alleviate any problems with the press breaking a soft yolk.
