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.


  • 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 asparagus

  • 1/4 cup pickled red onion, or to taste

  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese

Steps to Make It

  1. Slice your bagel in half down the middle and toast until crispy.

  2. Meanwhile, crack your eggs into a small bowl, add salt and pepper and whisk vigorously.

  3. Heat a small nonstick frying pan over medium heat, add your butter and allow it to melt.

  4. Pour your whisked eggs into the buttered frying pan and stir continuously until the eggs have cooked through but are still soft. Add in the dill and set aside.

  5. Once the bagel is toasted, gently place the soft scrambled eggs on top of the bottom half of the bagel, then add the smoked salmon pieces, the grilled asparagus, and the pickled red onions.

  6. Next, take the top half of the bagel and smear it with cream cheese. Place the creamed cheese bagel half on top of the rest of the sandwich and serve. 

  7. Enjoy!


  • Feel free to leave asparagus out if it's not in season and you can't find it, or simply don't like it. 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 pickle it. The citrus will help mellow the onion's bite.
  • Parsley or chives would also be delicious in place of the dill.


  • 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.
