Brunch Bagel Sandwich – egg, bacon, cheese, avocado and lettuce


There are many ways to jazz up your bagel sandwich and I believe that this is one of them.

I love pian and simple cream cheese bagel, just like my whole family. We also have a love affair with lox and cream cheese bagel, but if you agree with me, this is one amazing idea, as well.

This is my fuel sandwich, but you probably already noticed it’s pretty heavy.

So let me explain, I eat one good meal a day which is perfect for my workout program so I burn it quickly, too and at the same time I am not hungry.

Brunch Bagel Sandwich

A month ago, I started with 16/8 Intermittent Fasting, so I allow myself to eat the calorie-loaded lunch and a pretty light dinner.

I do not eat at all, not even a snack, after 6 pm. I do not eat for 16 delightful hours, sometimes more.

However 16 hrs is precisely my ultimate goal, and I have 8 hours window where I squeeze two decent meals.

To be honest, I feel so much better when I naturally made that switch. I don’t overdo it with calories.

Well, I stop eating when I am full, so I don’t have to necessarily eat the whole sandwich or the whole plate of food, you know.

You got to have some necessary self-control. Anyways, like I said I feel tremendously better doing it this way.

Classic Patty Melt Sandwich


These Classic Patty Melt Sandwiches are so simple, mouthwatering, and extremely easy to make. It is probably one of my favorites just because I absolutely love the combination of beef patty, cheese, and caramelized onions.
I mean, who would not love this?! It is a sandwich of my foodie dreams.

My family went bananas over it. You see, my husband and I didn’t grow up eating it like many of our American friends.
It was a completely new experience when I first made it compared to some of you eating it in your school cafeteria or diners.

However, I can say that I am so glad that I was the one who introduced this American Classic Sammie to my family. Indeed! It is a must-have at least once a month.


Classic Patty Melt Sandwich


What is Patty Melt?

As I said, patty melt is a sandwich consisting of a hamburger patty with melted cheese and topped with caramelized onions between two slices of griddled bread, traditionally rye or marbled rye. However, sourdough or Texas toast usually is substituted in some regions, including the southern U.S.A.

Well, It is unclear when the patty melt was precisely invented. There are records that it was served as early as the 1940s. The patty melt is a variant of the traditional American cheeseburger, but instead of using it in a bun, it was served on the toasted bread.

Classic Patty Melt Sandwich

Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

These Classic Patty Melt Sandwiches are mouthwatering, tasty, and so easy. It is probably one of my favorites burgers just because I absolutely love the combination of beef patty, cheese, and caramelized onions.


  • 1 1/2 pounds Laura’s Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 tsp Table salt
  • 1 tsp Ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4-1 stick of butter, unsalted, divided
  • 10 oz Yellow onion, sliced
  • 6-8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 8 slices of Bread; we used Texas toast


  1. To Laura’s Lean Ground Beef, add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, olive oil, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well until all ingredients are combined then divide the meat approximately into 4
    equal portions (about 6 ounces each). Form each portion loosely into the thick burger to fit your bread slices, then make a deep depression in the center with your thumb.
  2. Place on the platter, cover, and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, turn the stove to medium and heat your skillet, griddle, or a frying pan then add unsalted butter.
  4. When the butter is melted, add the onion, toss to coat in the
    butter. Toss every 2 to 3 minutes until the onions are soft and golden brown. About 12 to 15 minutes. Set aside!
  5. You can grill burgers or use a skillet/griddle. Since it is a grilling season, I thought of making my burger on the grill.
  6. For the grill: Grill the burgers until golden brown about 4 minutes on one side, flip, and grill 4 minutes for medium-rare. Please make your burger doneness your preferences.
  7. If you are cooking on the sauté pan, skillet, or griddle: Heat the oil in the skillet or griddle over high heat until the oil begins to shimmer; Turn down the heat t medium, then cook burgers for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare. When done set aside.
  8. Spread a thin layer of butter on each slice of bread.
  9. Place a slice or two of cheese, a tablespoon of caramelized onions, a burger, a bit more of carnalized onions and top it off with the cheese. Place another slice of bread on top.
  10. Heat your skillet or a griddle, then toast the sandwich on both
    sides for a few minutes until golden brown and crisp, and the cheese is melted. Slice in half and serve right away.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

Banana Nut Oat Muffins are such a great way not only to use up all those ripe bananas but makes such an amazing breakfast as well.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

Often times when I cannot sleep I tend to bake. I am not a big baker as you all know if you are following me for a longer period of time, but I do like baking these simple baked goodies.

Bread, rolls and these types of goodies like these muffins are my specialties. Oh, I do enjoy the whole process of bread making.

Anyhow, these muffins are just fantastic on days when you just do not know what to serve your kids and no one is eating those bananas.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

I had that exact problem, so this came really handy for two days. Having everyone home is not as easy as it seems even though I love having my kids all in one place.

That being said, this mama does need a break from time to time. So baking is definitely one great escape for me.


It is just so relaxing and therapeutic. Just like listening to music, which I do when I bake, so it’s really amazing time for me. Don’t you agree?

Well, my kids really like having warm muffins for breakfast or brunch, and I have feeling your family would too.

Plus you can totally make these together especially if you have a younger crew around you.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

I remember all the great memories that I created with my children when they were much younger.

To be honest I miss having those moments, even though I love spoiling them often.

Hey, thank you for stopping by my blog. I really hope you guys try these easy and tasty Banana Nut Oat Muffins.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Banana Nut Oat Muffins are easy and tasty breakfast or brunch idea.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4-5 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly butter muffin tins. One large muffin tin or two smaller works just fine.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix then add rolled oats and chopped or crushed walnuts.
  3. Mash bananas with a fork in a small bowl so they still have a bit of texture
  4. Add sugar, melted butter, oil, beaten eggs, and vanilla. Mix well scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice. You can use an electric mixer but it is not neccecery.
  5. Mix in the dry ingredients just until incorporated, together with oats and nuts.
  6. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins to fill them about halfway. Give them a rap on the counter to get any air bubbles out.
  7. Bake, until a toothpick stuck in the center of muffins, comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before turning the muffins out.
  8. You can keep them in the fridge after they are completely cooled down. Make sure muffins are in the ziplock bag or container with a lid. Wam them up before serving.


You can add dried fruit or chocolate chips which is amazing in these muffins.

If you do not have oats that ios completely fine. You do not have to panic because they are great without it as well.

If you do not have walnuts you can use any other nut, roasted and unsalted; pecans, almonds, peanuts, etc. It just a great to have extra crunch.
