Please Note: Nutritional values listed may vary from final results depending on actual measurements, products and brands used to prepare the recipe.

Directions:

In non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add the onions, sausages, and pecans; saute until onions are just softened, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and cook, stirring constantly, until eggs are firm but not dry. Transfer sausage mixture to plate.

Heat a panini maker or a grill pan over medium-high heat. To make four panini, divide sausage mixture into 4 portions. Mound each portion on one slice of bread. Top each with one ounce of cheddar, then a slice of the remaining bread.

Very lightly butter the outside of each panini. Cook in batches in panini maker until both sides of each panini are golden; serve promptly. Or, if using a grill pan or skillet, cook two panini at a time, placing a heavy skillet or heat-proof dish on top to weigh down panini as they cook. When golden on bottom, turn panini over and grill other side until golden; serve warm.
