Corn Panini

Tired of having the same items for breakfast? Try corn panini. It is super easy and super fast and will add a spurt of healthy taste to the start of your day.

Ingredients

1 corn on the cob or 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels

2 tbsp unsalted butter or ghee

2 tbsp plain flour

1 cup milk

2 tbsp grated cheese (optional)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

Bread slices

Corn Panini

Remove the corn kernels from the cob and blanch till soft. If using frozen kernels, thaw them and blanch them.

Blanching keeps corn juicy and soft and retains the flavour.

Drain and pulse in a grinder till half the corn kernels turn into a coarse mixture.

Heat butter in a pan and add the flour. Roast till slightly pink.

Remove from heat and add the milk. Whisk to remove lumps. Put it back on the gas and simmer till you get a thick sauce. Remove from heat. Add salt, pepper and cheese. Mix till cheese dissolves.

Spread in between two slices of bread and toast in a sandwich maker. Serve hot.

Egg Sandwich

Sandwich is the staple food for people on the go. True, you can buy them everywhere these days, but why not make them fresh at home. Now only will they be cheaper but also healthier and you can adapt them to your own taste. Eggs are soft and so you need something extra to provide the crunch. I have used tomatoes and onions but you can use anything from cucumbers, water cress, spinach or anything else you like.

Servings – 1 sandwich

Ingredients

2 sandwich bread slices

1 egg

1 tbsp mayonnaise

1 Onion

1 Tomato

Salt and Pepper

Butter (optional)

Egg Sandwich

Boil the egg to hard boiled. Remove the shell of the egg. Mash the egg with a fork and mix in mayonnaise along with salt and pepper.

Spread the egg mixture on one egg slice. Slice the onions and tomatoes and layer them on the prepared slice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Butter the other bread slice and complete the sandwich. Cut into triangles and serve.
