This delicious sandwich takes the idea of bagels and lox (or smoked salmon) to a whole new level. This smoked salmon bagel sandwich recipe is made with grilled asparagus, pickled red onions, and soft scrambled eggs, along with cream cheese, and fresh dill. It's all loaded up on a toasted everything bagel, and it might just be the best bagel sandwich we've ever made.
For an added bonus you can smoke the salmon yourself or even make your own bagels. But barring that, smoked salmon isn't hard to find in most large, well-stocked grocery stores, and bagels are not difficult for most people to source.
"This generous bagel and lox sandwich is super-charged with the addition of asparagus, eggs, cream cheese, and pickled red onions. I swapped the everything bagel for my favorite oat bagel and served it with a side salad, which made for a wonderfully hearty dinner." —Diana Andrews
1 medium everything bagel
2 large eggs
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh dill
2 ounces smoked salmon
5 spears grilled, roasted or blanched asparagus
1/4 cup homemade or store-bought pickled red onion, or to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons cream cheese
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Slice the bagel in half crosswise and toast to your liking.
Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a small bowl, add salt and pepper to taste and whisk vigorously.
Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the butter.
When the butter has melted, pour the eggs into the skillet. Stir continuously with a silicone spatula until the eggs have cooked through but are still soft. Top with the dill and set aside.
Gently place the soft scrambled eggs on the cut side of the bottom half of the bagel. Top with the smoked salmon, asparagus, and pickled red onions.
Spread the cream cheese over the cut side of the remaining bagel half. Close the sandwich, cream cheese side down on the pickled red onions and serve.
- Bagel sizes can vary wildly, so you may find that you need more or less of some of the ingredients. Adjust the amounts as necessary.
- You can also easily double or triple the recipe if you're making more than one sandwich.
- Leave the asparagus out if desired. For a little green crunch instead, you could use sliced cucumbers.
- You can also use thinly sliced red onion that has been sitting in a little bit of lemon or lime juice if you don't want to use pickled onion. The citrus will help mellow the onion's bite.
- Parsley or chives would also be delicious in place of the dill.
