A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that my daughter was studying abroad. On the way back to the U.S., she spent the night with her roommate on Long Island. When she arrived back in Atlanta, she brought us a dozen fresh NY bagels from Manhasset Bagels, compliments of her roomie's mother who'd run to pick them up that morning!
We froze several and have been eating them this past week. Rationing something special to make it last longer! :)
Today, I wanted to share what my daughter made for lunch yesterday. (I'm sorry I only took 2 photos.)
She took an Everything Bagel (topped with onion flakes, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic...yummy stuff!), sliced it in half, then toasted it a bit under the boiler. Then she topped it with the makings of a sandwich.
She layered on slices of turkey then topped with colby-jack cheese, open face style. Then she broiled it again to melt the cheese and warm the turkey.
When she took it out of the oven, she added sliced avocados. Personally, I would love to have added arugula and maybe even tomato slices. You can eat it open faced or put it back together and eat it sandwich style.
Here, you can even see how the cheese melted downhill before she put the two pieces back together as a sandwich. :)
