Egg and Green Chile Croissant Panini

It’s the beginning of Lent and it’s time to be creative in the kitchen. As much as I think I don’t eat a lot of meat, I kinda do. The great thing about this time of year is that I eat a lot more fish and veggies and always wonder why I don’t do it more often.

Meat-free dishes always remind me of my grandma. Every Friday she made her delicious red enchiladas. They were made with a homemade red chile sauce and topped with shredded cheese and chopped onions. Super authentic, and oh so delicioso. I will definitely be eating my fill of that dish this season, but I also plan to share some seafood dishes and other meat-free dishes.

Today, I’m sharing a delicious croissant panini inspired by a delicious brunch at a French bakery. Tender, butter-flavored pastries from heaven overloaded with the most delicious farm-fresh eggs combined with roasted green chile, slices of avocados, tomatoes, and ooey-gooey melted queso Oaxaca.

These croissant panini’s can even be pre-made and refrigerated and reheated in a toaster oven or a couple seconds in the microwave and then toasted again on a skillet for a delicious breakfast on the go.
