Smoked Salmon Bagel Sandwiches

I don’t know about you, but I am a sandwich person.
One of top 5 of my favorite sandwiches would be this amazing smoked salmon bagel sandwich.

I devour it and to be honest, I could never become tired of eating this kind of summich. I called this a lazy Friday dinner because it was quick and no cooking required, but everyone loved it. It is really perfect any day of the week as well as for parties.

They are in a way fancy, but not really, if you know what I mean?! I am just in love with this delightful sandwich so that’s why I’ve decided to share it here on my blog.

Smoked Salmon Bagel Sandwiches

Of course, creating a sandwich is something that should be personalized. I love building it myself, as for the rest of my fab family, I ask what they want because we are pretty darn serious when it comes to building a sandwich.

Sometimes, I would just display or set on the cutting board,  sort of like charcuterie board so they can build their own bagel sandwiches. Lately, we have been enjoying those very much and let me tell you, we all love it.

Instructions

  2. Spread BOTH sides with cream cheese and sprinkle with the chopped chives.
  3. Over cheese on 1 bagel half, layer English cucumber or mini cucumber, thinly sliced avocado, smoked salmon, spinach – now, it a good time to add other additions such as red onion and/or capers.
  4. Set remaining bagel half, cream cheese side down, over filling.

Recipe Notes

You can personalize it however you would like. I love adding capers and red onion, not in the pic, but it’s absolutely fantastic. You can also try it with chives cream cheese or sprinkle fresh chives like I did because chives give extra flavor and compliment salmon very well. Smoked salmon is also your personal preference. Most of the time I am using Alaskan Smoked Salmon. Bagel.

you have a couple of choices, of course. The one that I am using is “Everything pre-sliced bagel”, and I like the regular size for my family unless it’s a party, then I am using mini bagels.

Lunch Box: Biscuit Deli Turkey Sandwiches

Lunch Box: Biscuit Deli Turkey Sandwiches

Lunch Box Biscuit Deli Turkey Sandwiches

School is around the corner and I already started with school lunch box preparations. We had a great Bento party the other day.

Well, when I look the other way it was my working day, while I finished cooking and shooting my kids and nieces ate all my made bentos.

It was fun watching them and they especially loved pandas as well as chicken salad sandwiches. Every time when I make characters in a bento, it is a winner because not only that kids eat the main meal, but all the fresh fruits and veggies around it, which is fantastic.

This bento is great! You can of course switch and make it the way your kids like, but even for work lunch I think this is a pretty good idea; you can make it larger if it’s for the adult. 

Now, I used deli turkey bologna, because that’s what my kids wanted, but often I use Virginia ham, mesquite deli chicken, or deli smoked turkey breast and just switch cheeses such as mozzarella, smoked provolone, cheddar or Swiss cheese etc.

Depending on what I have or what cold deli salami I used. 
Fruits and vegetables you can also use what is in season and of course what your kids like. I think broccoli, celery, and carrots are pretty common veggies that they know and would eat raw.

Green apple with a Peanut – Butter is fantastic, although make sure to check if anybody around your kid in the classroom had PB allergies, and you can easily substitute it with almond butter, or pecan butter etc. Also, I never tried it, but you can check “NoNuts Golden Peabutter” 
It’s Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free. 


Q: What Box is safe for me and my child?
A: Look for the boxes that have a clear written label that they are BPA FREE just in case if they are plastic- 
BPA stands for bisphenol.  BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. Seeking out BPA-free products may not always be easy to do. Some manufacturers do label their products as BPA-free, but some do not. If a product isn’t labeled, keep in mind that most aluminum cans or bottles have linings that contain BPA, while steel bottles or can do not. Polycarbonate plastic is generally hard, clear, lightweight plastic. It often has the No. 7 recycling symbol on the bottom. (Source Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L. D. From Mayo-clinic)

HOW TO MAKE HEART SHAPED BOIL EGG:

  • Use corner of any carton such as a box, milk carton etc. 
  • Cook egg for 5 minutes in boiling water with 1/2 tsp of salt. 
  • Turn off the burner, and let it steam under the lid for the next 7 minutes. 
  • Drain the hot water and replace with cold/iced cold water. Let it sit in that water for next 3-5 minutes before peeling. (This way it’s easier to peel an egg)
  • Place peeled eggs into the carton with the corner (lengthwise), right in the middle. 
  • Place in the middle chopstick, thicker straw or similar and slightly press and shape an egg a little… Just a slight pressure. I used a plastic straw. 
  • Place rubber bands on both ends and wait for 10-15 minutes. (NO need for the third rubber band) 
  • Cut in the middle and you will have a perfect heart shaped egg.

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

Yield: Makes 4 Sandwiches
Prep Time: 10 minutes
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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.
