There’s nothing that makes me happier than being able to enjoy all of my favorite breakfast foods in a single bite. These Loaded Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches are a delicious way to start your day! Cater ingredients to your liking.
I am winding down from a super crazy day. Dan took off on an airplane early this morning and then my two boys and dog and I had quite the adventurous day. It is NOT EASY keeping a dog quarantined due to possible contagious illness while running boys from here to there and back and then over there AND wrapping up some errands and attending open house for school. I feel hugely accomplished tonight and can barely believe that today is done. Onto tomorrow!
Before we tackle another day, let me introduce you to my absolute favorite breakfast with so many delicious foods packed into one little sandwich. I could eat this every single dang morning.
We made this delicious breakfast sandwich a handful of times on our trip with a few variations. We made it with both sausage and bacon and also with scrambled and over-easy eggs. It was yummy and satisfying every time. It would also be so good with ham and with different veggie toppings.
For a lightened-up version, skip the meat and cheese, load up on veggies and use whole wheat bagels.
Please tell me about a recent crazy day you’ve had! I’ll send a fun and generous package to my favorite commenter (contest will close on 8/31)!
Thank you so much for reading, whether this is your first visit or 200th. I appreciate you! Have a wonderful rest of your week!

Well, this past week was nuts! School started, medical tests, sick friend getting sicker, just need a break
Get better, Julie! Praying a break comes soon!!
I have had a crazy month, not just a crazy day. My last day at my job was on August 5th and I spent the next week feeling bad. I was prepping for a cruise my hubby and I were planning to leave for on the 21st. We haven’t been on vacation in two years. I felt so bad that week that finally when hubby walked through the door on the 12th after work in asked him to take me to the ER. It’s bad when I do that because I hate needles. They did a CT scan and found I had a small bowel obstruction and they sent me to the hospital recommending I go via ambulance. I declined and we drove. They did another CT scan and then I had emergency surgery where I ended up with an NG tube for 6 days, didn’t eat for 6 days, got to have Lovenox injections in my belly 7 days, was awoken by lab every morning at 4:45am and spent 8 days in the hospital. The morning after i got home one of our two water heaters blew up, Time Warner Cable dug up our yard the day I went to the hospital and cut the lines of our sprinkler system which just got fixed yesterday. I could go on and on but I am simply ready for September! And I’m happy I’ve finally felt like eating breakfast again after three weeks! I can’t wait to try this breakfast idea!!!
I also meant to add that we didn’t get to go on our cruise because I had surgery which just adds to the crazy month!!! 🙂
Oh my goodness, Traci, what a month! I’m so glad it’s September….starting fresh!
Thank you, Megan……I feel like the luckiest girl ever!! Thank you! ?
I read through all of these comments and there is so much craziness, but Traci, I feel like you deserve a little love more than most! Contact me and I’ll put something in the mail for you!
My crazy day was yesterday. The night before, I put my 9yo’s extra school supplies for his advanced placement class into the vehicle, to ensure they wouldn’t be forgotten. As the van door closed, after he was dropped off at school the next morning, I saw that the bag had been left. I emailed his teacher and planned to drop them by the office that afternoon. Two hours later, it hit me that I forgot to put a blue ice in his lunchbox. Then, it hit me that I forgot yo put his lunchbox into his backpack. Back home I went t grab said lunchbox and blue ice and delivered those along with the school supplies to the office, just as he was en route to the advanced placement class and an hour before lunchtime. It all worked out.
Sounds like my life, Paula! Glad it all worked out!
Last Saturday I could have used this breakfast sandwich!! I am a cheer coach and I was taking my squad to a cheer clinic 70 miles away (originally I thought it was only 56 miles away– that was to my first exit!). . First of all, I am NOT a morning person in general and to have to leave at 0730 makes it worse! I waited longer for a cheerleader (who never showed up btw) than I should have. Got on the road in MY personal vehicle and got most of the way there and realized that I was nearly out of gas (we live in a rural area and I had "scheduled" this stop but did not do that since we were running late). So we made a unscheduled exit and had to "find" a town that had a gas station! UGH! We made it but probably barely. On the road again and my squad starts getting return texts from the MIA cheerleader. Apologizing and saying she feels bad she missed camp– AGAIN. Two weeks in a row! We are now going to be a minimum of 30 minutes late because of my snafew! I am hungry and angry and tired and then the final blow– she quits! We get to camp. We are late! It is the same group conducting the camp from the week before that we had already worked with ( the original email stated a different college– I swear!). Same cheers. Same jumps. Same everything! Stay at camp. Use as a review. Finish camp! On the road again. Home to construction STILL ( 3 months in the making) in my kitchen. Living out of boxes in my Livingroom, Diningroon and my garage!. Make a makeshift supper in a kitchen that I have to move the stains, clean the sawdust and wash the dishes before they can be used. Eat. Sand. Stain. Go to bed! All in one day!!
I’m tired just reading this, TJ. WOW! All in a day?! I hope your kitchen gets done soon. Nothing like living out of boxes (yuck).
My oldest son turned 13 years old today, we had a party for him a couple of weeks ago because he started school on the 16th and has cross country practice after school. I’m currently training for a marathon and the day of the party was also the day of my long run, 20 miles. I got up early and hit the road arriving back home in time for breakfast. He requested homemade pizza for the birthday meal and a cheesecake for dessert. We only had immediate family over which amounted to just over a dozen people. I made a cookie dough cheesecake with a chocolate chip cookie crust, topped with a thin layer of ganache, chocolate frosting and 13 homemade cookie dough truffles. It went over very well! The pizza was good too, I’ve been doing that for years so that came naturally! I made the dough a couple of days in advance, creating 4 different pies. My son had his favorite, BBQ chicken pizza. My wife is great at many things, being in the kitchen is not one of them so most of this was on me. She did help decorate the cheesecake, definitely more artsy that me. All in all, it was a great day. It feels good to have a teenager!
I love this, Jeffrey! A FUN crazy day! And wow, that cheesecake sounds amazing!! Happy birthday to your son!
last week was one of the craziest couple days of my life! i am in optometry school…and in your fourth and final year, you have to take 3 steps of boards exams. the one i took last week is in charlotte, NC, which is about a 9 hour drive. so my family and i drove down there, took the exam (most stressful experience)–4 hours of clinical skills, being recorded and watched with a simulated patient–and then drove part of the way back again! exhausted is understatement!
That sounds exhausting, Bianca! I bet you’re glad that’s over with! Rest up!!
Last Saturday was a crazy day at our house! Our Church participates in the Upward Basketball Program. A festival was held in our town and we decided to have a float in the parade. We met at 6:45 am to assemble and put the finishing touches on the float. My husband also had a table set up for s 5k run being held in November. I ran between both well I mean walked. By 9 we were on our way to line up for the parade. My job was to hand out freezer pops walking 1 1/2 miles. I got home around 2 and cleaned up again. By 3:30 I was driving to Chicago, a 1 1/2 hour drive. My best friend and I had Tickets to see Steven Tyler. Oh my GOODNESS. A crazy day turned into a great night. Home by 12:30 am and up by 6:30 for church! I think I’m still tired. ?
Oh my GOODNESS, Lynn! How were you still standing at the end of the concert? That is so much packed into a single day! I need a nap. 🙂
