This Bacon and Eggs Biscuit Breakfast Panini is FOUR ingredients, and and all but the last two steps can be done ahead of time making it a fast breakfast!

You guys. I discovered Alias on Hulu. And I am devouring it.

When I say I discovered Alias on Hulu, I mean that I sincerely considered not writing this post so that I could give it my undivided attention. I have no idea what I was doing when it was first on. Probably something stupid like working on my graduate degree.

So seriously, I’m going to make this short and sweet. Sydney is doing something bad ass and I don’t want to miss it.

Breakfast Panini! It’s a no brainer, right? Simple standard ingredients that you really can’t go wrong with. But! What makes this panini special is that the “bread” is actually refrigerated biscuit dough that cooks right in the panini press! No lie! You can totally make the bacon and eggs the night before and they will get all warm and delicious in the panini press, making this a really simple breakfast to go!

raw biscuit dough cut in half

First start by cutting one biscuit in half. It will get a little squished, but we take care of that in a second.

Now flatten each half out. I mean, you want them pretty much as flat as they can get, otherwise they won’t cook through before the outside burns.

The rest is pretty self explanatory. You throw in some yummy ingredients. I put in bacon, eggs, and cheese, but you could always make these vegetarian and replace the bacon with a tomato or some avocado. The sky’s the limit.

Seriously, she is doing something so badass. I gotta go. I want to be Jennifer Garner when I grow up. My girl crush for her just got more intense.

Bacon and Eggs Biscuit Breakfast Panini

Serves: 4 paninis
(tap # to scale)


  • 4 eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 T cream whatever you use in your coffee
  • 1/4 t garlic salt
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 refrigerated biscuits I used Pillsbury’s Grands, cut in half and pressed thin


  • Mix the eggs, egg whites, cream, and garlic salt. Whisk and then cook the eggs until light, fluffy and cooked through.
  • Cook the bacon and set aside. (These steps can be done ahead of time, keeping the cooked ingredients in the refrigerator until ready to make the panini.)
  • Cooking the paninis one at a time, spray the panini press then layer them with half a biscuit, about 1/4 of the eggs, two heaping tablespoons of cheese, the bacon, and then the other half of the biscuit.
  • Cook then until the panini press light turns green, keeping a close eye on it so that it does not burn.


It’s really easy for these to burn, so don’t step away while they are cooking.

  3. Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says

    I love using biscuits for sandwiches! I’ve never done it in the panini maker – genius, seriously. Also? Alias. Makes me laugh. My dad LOVED that show. “She did her own stunts you know!”

    • Lisa Longley says

      SHE DID HER OWN STUNTS?!?!?!? OMG. The girl crush is even BIGGER now!

  4. Melissa says

    Love Alias! My husband and I watched it all when we were first married. That show is so great! But it has ruined Victor Garber for me forever. If I see him in anything else and he is smiling, I’m like, “That is so wrong.”

    Panini looks great!! I missed all of last season of Alias because someone in my family records EVERY episode of Castle, even if we’ve watched it 6 times already!! Solved that problem, and am sooo glad I can see Jennifer on Hulu. Back to the panini sandwich again…..saute some caramelize some onions and sauté some garlic, mushrooms and sweet peppers to add to the sandwich too.

  9. K in Tulsa says

    This looks absolutely delicious – but would there be any way to make it without a panini press? I have a george foreman grill, but I’m guessing that might run at a higher temp? maybe I could line my waffle maker with foil? Hmmmm…

  10. Kitchen deliciousness says

    Those are some awesome looking biscuits! I’d love to come over to your place for Sunday brunch :)
