GMA: Emeril's Steak and Egg Panini & 13th Annual Mother's Day Contest

Emeril came by GMA March 14 2013 to talk about the 13th Annual Mother’s Day Contest and to cook a steak and egg breakfast panini.


This meal looked amazing. Sam Champion was so pumped up about it that he didn’t even accept a plate from Emeril when he started eating the sandwich, even though he was wearing a suit. He chowed down on it while Emeril handed plates to the other more sensible hosts.

Emeril’s Steak and Egg Breakfast Panini Ingredients:

  • 1 pound, 1-inch thick strip steak, or rib-eye
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1½ cups sliced shitake mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 6 eggs, whisked
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 6 English muffins, split
  • 6 slices Swiss or cheddar cheese
  • Sriracha or your favorite hot sauce for serving

GMA Steak and Egg Breakfast Panini Directions:

  1. Season the steak with salt and pepper and heat a 12-inch saute pan for 5 minutes over high heat.
  2. Add oil and the steak and reduce heat to medium, cooking the steak until well browned, about 5 minutes on each side, for a medium steak.
  3. Set aside steak to cool for at least 10 minutes, then slice the steak thinly across the grain.
  4. Cook the onion and mushrooms in the pan, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. black pepper and remove from heat.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Then add the eggs and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and cayenne. Scrabble the eggs over low heat.
  6. Heat the panini maker.
  7. Assemble sandwiches by dividing the eggs among the bottoms halves of the muffins, topping with mushrooms, slices of steak and a slice of cheese. Then add the top of the muffin and butter the outsides of the sandwich.
  8. Heat in the panini maker until the bread is crisp and the cheese is melted, about three to four minutes. Cut in half and serve with Sriarcha.
  9. Enjoy!
