  • 1 Everything Bagel
  • 1 tablespoon Cream Cheese
  • 2 ounces Smoked Salmon
  • 1 tablespoon Capers
  • 1/2 Red Onion, Thinly Sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Dill, chopped
  • Freshly ground Black Pepper, to taste


  1. Begin by slicing the bagel in half and toasting it until it’s golden brown.
  2. Spread a generous amount of cream cheese on each half of the bagel.
  3. On one half of the bagel, layer the smoked salmon, capers, and thinly sliced red onion.
  4. Sprinkle some freshly chopped dill and ground black pepper over the top.
  5. Place the other half of the bagel on top, press gently, and your smoked salmon bagel with cream cheese is ready to serve.


When selecting your smoked salmon, go for high-quality cold-smoked salmon. It’s thinly sliced, has a subtly smoky flavor and buttery texture that pairs perfectly with the cream cheese.

For the cream cheese, you can opt for the traditional plain one or experiment with different flavors such as herb or garlic for an added twist.

Don’t forget to toast your bagel as it gives a nice crunch that contrasts the soft filling.

Lastly, capers are a must for this recipe as they give an excellent salty, briny punch that cuts through the richness of the salmon and cream cheese.
