This easy lox n’ bagel sandwich is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even breakfast for dinner! Made with homemade gravlax and loaded with cucumbers, shallots, dill, capers and cream cheese, this sandwich is easily customize-able and absolutely delicious!
The series on homemade Gravlax continues with these ‘Lox ‘n Bagel Sammies. This post is more of a serving suggestion, rather than a recipe, per say. These make for a great ‘anytime’ meal. Start your day off right by having one for breakfast. Refuel your energy and scarf one down for lunch. Or, throw one together for an easy week night dinner.
I made mine fairly simple, with a slather of bacon-chive flavored cream cheese, slices of tomato, cured salmon, thin slices of shallots, and a sprinkling of fresh dill and capers.
Feel free to make these your own creation. There are no rules. I would have added sliced hothouse cucumbers and sprouts, but I did not have any on hand. And, to be honest, I was feeling too lazy to drive to the grocery store… so I went without.
However, I highly recommend you do not be like me. Add them if you have ’em because it would make this sandwich (more) out of this world good.
You could substitute plain or flavored humus for the cream cheese, or use tzaziki sauce. Throw on some roasted red peppers, crispy bacon, sliced black olives… yummm.
Use rye bread, english muffins or soft white sandwich bread instead of bagels. Like I said, use that thing God gave you, conveniently located inside your noggin’, to come up with a sandwich that pleases you.
🙂 Until next time… Enjoy!
