Is breakfast your favorite meal of the day? It’s often mine! Our family loves waffles, so we enjoy them at least once a week. Because life gets busy with a big family like ours, having Eggo Waffles on hand in the freezer is really convenient. They’re also are perfect for this delicious Veggie & Bacon Waffle Panini recipe. Enjoy these tasty grilled sandwiches not only for breakfast, but for lunch and dinner! They can be ready in just a few minutes too!
The entire line of Eggo Waffles now have colors & flavors from natural sources! There are several different varieties available in your Walmart’s grocery section, but for this recipe we are using Kellogg’s® Eggo® Thick & Fluffy Original Waffles. Yum! These are Belgian Style just like the ones you make at home!
My kiddos also love grabbing Kellogg’s® Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Whole Wheat Waffles and eating them plain with a piece of fruit for a quick snack throughout the week, so we add those to our cart too.

Along with the perfectly toasted Eggo waffles, this tasty panini features crispy bacon, fresh colorful peppers and onions with melted Swiss cheese.
Start by washing and slicing your green, orange, and yellow peppers along with some red onion.
Next, in a saute pan, soften your sliced veggies in a little butter and extra virgin olive oil. Oh, this smells so good!
Washing, slicing and even sauteing the vegetables can all be done ahead of time and then stored in your refrigerator to make this sandwich assembly during the week even quicker.
After toasting your waffles to perfection, layer each one with a slice of Swiss cheese and top one of the waffles with the crispy bacon.
Add a generous layer of those sweet an colorful peppers to the panini on top of the bacon.
Carefully close the sandwich and press down gently.
After adding a little butter to the top of the waffle, I like to use my counter top electric grill for pressing the panini. If you have a panini press, go ahead and use that to grill these sandwiches! You can even grill these in a regular pan on your stove top.
When these sandwiches are grilling, you can really smell the wonderful combination of flavors. A hint of sweetness from the fluffy waffles mingled with the savory aroma of the Swiss cheese melting with the crispy bacon and those veggies… I couldn’t wait to take a bite!
When the cheese has melted and the panini is nice and golden on top, remove it from the heat.
Simply slice the panini into half, or quarters, whichever way you like and enjoy! It’s a satisfying and quick meal that you can put together in just minutes.
Get creative in the kitchen with your favorite Eggo Waffles this week!
