Breakfast Sushi Panini

I was inspired by Lindsey’s Breakfast Sushi the other day – she had a wrap with almond butter, a pear, and cinnamon. So I ran with it.

First I made a wrap (Flat Out wrap) with shredded apple (from Sunday) and grated blue cheese. I spread the toppings out over the wrap while I heated up my “panini press” (which is actually a waffle maker!).

I pressed it in the waffle maker for about 4-5 minutes, then cut it in half and ate it with another apple.

The next morning I was in the mood for a new creation. I sliced a banana and laid it out on the Flat Out wrap. Then I drizzled Greek yogurt and almond butter (warmed in the microwave) on top.

I stuck it in the waffle maker again.

I think I like the banana creation better, but the apple/cheese one is definitely a keeper too. I like the way the waffle maker leaves little squares on the wrap. Who knew you could use a waffle maker as a panini press?

While these guys probably can’t beat out oat bran (my favorite breakfast), they are great for switching things up. I can’t have oat bran for breakfast every day.

What’s your favorite breakfast?

  1. For serious, that banana creation looks divine. I don’t have a waffle maker, but I may just bust out my iron to give it a shot (kidding…kind of). I could eat breakfast food every meal of the day and not get sick of it–especially when I’m at home and can enjoy it (only weekends. So sad.)

    But, I love oatmeal/oatbran with almond milk and almond butter and fruit, eggs in any form with any type of carb (Ezekiel toast, shredded wheat, etc.) I guess it’s not that creative, but I love my breakfasts!

  2. Both of those wraps look and sound fantastic! My favorite breakfast is pancakes but I usually only have time for them on weekends. During the week I love yogurt messes.

  3. apple + blue cheese wrap? that is a great sweet/salty combo! i am loving all the wrappage. there are so many possibilities – my fave as of late is a good banana + PB + honey + cinnamon, but i think i might have to give apples + cheese a shot!

    have a lovely day ms. maggie!

  4. Wow that looks great! I am all about a big bowl of fruit or a green juice to get me going in the morning. Every once in a while it is fun to go crazy and have a huge stack of pancakes or waffles at the diner.

  5. love the ingenuity with the waffle maker! both those creations sound divine.

    my favorite breakfast is oatmeal – i eat it every day and never get tired of it! of course i always change up the mixins, so that keeps things interesting.

  6. so many thought just went through my mind while reeading thsi post and drooling at the pics, such as I NEED TO GO HOME NOW AND MAKE THIS!!! these wraps look phenom!! esp the banana and greek yogurt warmed and pressed in the waffle maker!! love your blog, girl! 🙂

  7. Hey maggie! those wraps look amazing, so creative!! I was wondering do you make those wraps yourself or do you buy them in a packet??? Always read your blog…first time posting!! You are so inventive with your food it’s inspiring:)xx

  8. Hmmmm…. I’d have to say my favorite breakfast is usually a green smoothie. I also love steel-cut oats, but don’t eat them often. Organic Greek yogurt is another favorite – topped with frozen blueberries, of course! 😀

  9. I used to have the same breakfast all the time (oatmeal), but now I’m changing it up 🙂 Currently, I’m loving green protein pancakes, although I still love oatmeal/oat bran too!

  10. That’s it. You’re the Queen of Wraps. Holy cow what amazing creations! I used to cringe when I heard apple pie and cheddar cheese, but now I’m convinced they must be made for each other!

  11. Hey, I had a Flat out wrap for breakfast, too! It was Nutella with sliced banana, nuked for a few seconds in the microwave. DEEE-lish! Bananas are really yummy in that Flat Out wrap. I originally wanted to add peanut butter but we were out!

    One of my favorite breakfasts is steel cut oats w/hazelnut creamer & MANGOs. Just add the mangoes to warm oats and mmm, mmm, good! Reminds me of a mango hotcake I had once at a restaurant…

  12. Mags! HI BOOBOO! So I have not commented in so long! I stopped reading blogs for a while, bc I was actually away for about 9 weeks, but I am back to reading AND BLOGGING! Well, actually, VLOGGING. Yeah. Ha. It has been interesting, and surprisingly SO MUCH FUN! I have adored it!

    Anyways, I just wanted to pop in and say hi! Love you boo!

  13. apple and cheese wrap sounds soooooooooooo good!!
