Steak & Egg Panini

In our version of the classic pairing of steak and eggs, we tuck slices of rib-eye steak, scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese between slices of sourdough bread, then grill the sandwiches to crisp perfection. Wine Pairing: This pairs well with smooth, medium-bodied red wines

  • Servings



  • 2

    rib-eye steaks, each about 12 ounces

  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 6


  • ¼

    cup milk

  • 1

    tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

  • 1

    tablespoon fresh chives, chopped

  • 6

    tablespoons (¾ stick) unsalted butter, melted

  • 12

    slices sourdough bread, each about ½ inch thick

  • 6

    slices cheddar cheese

  • Hot sauce for serving (optional)


Preheat an electric panini press to high (400°F) according to the manufacturer's instructions. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Place the steaks on the panini press. Close the lid and cook for 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare, or until done to your liking. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut the steaks into strips 1/4 inch wide. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, parsley, chives, salt and pepper. In a nonstick fry pan over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons of the melted butter. Add the egg mixture and, using a silicone spatula, stir frequently until soft curds form, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the scrambled eggs from the heat. Reduce the heat on the panini press to medium (350°F). Brush one side of each bread slice with the remaining 4 tablespoons melted butter. Lay 6 slices, buttered side down, on a work surface, and arrange 3 or 4 steak slices on each one. Top each with 1/4 cup scrambled eggs and 1 cheese slice. Top with another bread slice, buttered side up. Place 2 sandwiches on the panini press and close the lid. Cook until the sandwiches are nicely grill-marked and the cheese has melted, about 3 minutes. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches. Serve with hot sauce.
