Smoked Salmon Bagel Sandwiches

I don’t know about you, but I am a sandwich person.
One of top 5 of my favorite sandwiches would be this amazing smoked salmon bagel sandwich.

I devour it and to be honest, I could never become tired of eating this kind of summich. I called this a lazy Friday dinner because it was quick and no cooking required, but everyone loved it. It is really perfect any day of the week as well as for parties.

They are in a way fancy, but not really, if you know what I mean?! I am just in love with this delightful sandwich so that’s why I’ve decided to share it here on my blog.

Smoked Salmon Bagel Sandwiches

Of course, creating a sandwich is something that should be personalized. I love building it myself, as for the rest of my fab family, I ask what they want because we are pretty darn serious when it comes to building a sandwich.

Sometimes, I would just display or set on the cutting board,  sort of like charcuterie board so they can build their own bagel sandwiches. Lately, we have been enjoying those very much and let me tell you, we all love it.

Recipe Notes

You can personalize it however you would like. I love adding capers and red onion, not in the pic, but it’s absolutely fantastic. You can also try it with chives cream cheese or sprinkle fresh chives like I did because chives give extra flavor and compliment salmon very well. Smoked salmon is also your personal preference. Most of the time I am using Alaskan Smoked Salmon. Bagel.

you have a couple of choices, of course. The one that I am using is “Everything pre-sliced bagel”, and I like the regular size for my family unless it’s a party, then I am using mini bagels.

Lunch Box: Biscuit Deli Turkey Sandwiches

Lunch Box: Biscuit Deli Turkey Sandwiches

Lunch Box Biscuit Deli Turkey Sandwiches

School is around the corner and I already started with school lunch box preparations. We had a great Bento party the other day.

Well, when I look the other way it was my working day, while I finished cooking and shooting my kids and nieces ate all my made bentos.

It was fun watching them and they especially loved pandas as well as chicken salad sandwiches. Every time when I make characters in a bento, it is a winner because not only that kids eat the main meal, but all the fresh fruits and veggies around it, which is fantastic.

This bento is great! You can of course switch and make it the way your kids like, but even for work lunch I think this is a pretty good idea; you can make it larger if it’s for the adult. 

Now, I used deli turkey bologna, because that’s what my kids wanted, but often I use Virginia ham, mesquite deli chicken, or deli smoked turkey breast and just switch cheeses such as mozzarella, smoked provolone, cheddar or Swiss cheese etc.

Depending on what I have or what cold deli salami I used. 
Fruits and vegetables you can also use what is in season and of course what your kids like. I think broccoli, celery, and carrots are pretty common veggies that they know and would eat raw.

Green apple with a Peanut – Butter is fantastic, although make sure to check if anybody around your kid in the classroom had PB allergies, and you can easily substitute it with almond butter, or pecan butter etc. Also, I never tried it, but you can check “NoNuts Golden Peabutter” 
It’s Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free. 


Q: What Box is safe for me and my child?
A: Look for the boxes that have a clear written label that they are BPA FREE just in case if they are plastic- 
BPA stands for bisphenol.  BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. Seeking out BPA-free products may not always be easy to do. Some manufacturers do label their products as BPA-free, but some do not. If a product isn’t labeled, keep in mind that most aluminum cans or bottles have linings that contain BPA, while steel bottles or can do not. Polycarbonate plastic is generally hard, clear, lightweight plastic. It often has the No. 7 recycling symbol on the bottom. (Source Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L. D. From Mayo-clinic)

Lunch Box Biscuit Deli Turkey Sandwiches

HOW TO MAKE HEART SHAPED BOIL EGG:

  • Use corner of any carton such as a box, milk carton etc. 
  • Cook egg for 5 minutes in boiling water with 1/2 tsp of salt. 
  • Turn off the burner, and let it steam under the lid for the next 7 minutes. 
  • Drain the hot water and replace with cold/iced cold water. Let it sit in that water for next 3-5 minutes before peeling. (This way it’s easier to peel an egg)
  • Place peeled eggs into the carton with the corner (lengthwise), right in the middle. 
  • Place in the middle chopstick, thicker straw or similar and slightly press and shape an egg a little… Just a slight pressure. I used a plastic straw. 
  • Place rubber bands on both ends and wait for 10-15 minutes. (NO need for the third rubber band) 
  • Cut in the middle and you will have a perfect heart shaped egg.

 Using Kingsford Hardwood Pellets

Full Meal from the Grill

This post is sponsored by Kingsford. The opinion and text are mine.

Cooking a whole family meal on the grill is not only a time-saver but also a very delicious way to prepare food. On top of that, you can create fabulous memories with your loved ones. I am all about creating memories, particularly around food.

Well, in this post, I am sharing a tasty sandwich with you, a side dish that could be served as a summer salad as well, and a comforting dessert that just about anyone would admire.

I think that the best part of summertime is cooking food outdoor on your grill. Who agrees with me? There is no mistake that the food tastes so much more enjoyable when it comes directly from your grill to the plate.

Full Meal from the Grill

I partnered with Kingsford Hardwood Pellets to share with you all these appetizing grilled recipes.

Kingsford Hardwood Pellets are made with all-natural, pure flavor hardwoods and absolutely no fillers, binders or preservatives, bringing out undoubtedly the best possible flavor.

Full Meal from the Grill

You must try their pellets because it will fire up the flavor in any pellet grill — Classic, Cherrywood, Hickory, Signature, and Maple flavor. Furthermore, Kingsford Hardwood Pellets are proudly made in the USA.

For my weekend family meal, I used Kingsford Cherrywood  all-natural 100% cherry hardwood. Additionally, as I said, there are no fillers, so cherry’s fruity aroma adds a delicate smoke flavor to any protein or vegetable, and pairs perfectly with pork.

These all-natural Kingsford pellets are made with pure flavor hardwood to deliver a sweetly refined smoke you will absolutely love. Regardless, you can most certainly use Classic, Hickory, or Signature Pellets, but I wanted to stick to Cherrywood for this meal!

Full Meal from the Grill

How to use Kingsford Hardwood Pellets:

Pour wood pellets into a storage container, also known as a hopper. The pellets are then fed into a cooking chamber by the electricity-powered auger. Then the wood pellets ignite, heating the cooking chamber where the air is brought in by fans, and your food gets infused with a real wood smoky flavor.

  • Marinade:
  • 1/2-inch piece of ginger, peeled
  • 2 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces

    pork loin in the marinade, cover and keep in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours;
    make sure to turn it around at least once.

Grill Prep:

  1. Open your Kingsford pellets bag. I used classic which is great for almost
    anything you want in your grill. Flavorful and strong. Wood pellets are poured
    into a storage container also known as a hopper. The pellets are then fed into
    a cooking chamber by an auger that is powered by electricity.
  2. When ready to cook, smoke setting with the lid open.
  3. Wait for the fire to start about 5 min, depending on the grill type and
    model.
  4. When ready to cook, set the grill temperature to 450F and preheat lid
    closed for 15 minutes.

Grilling:

  1. Place the pork loin on the hot grill and turn every 2-3 minutes, closing the
    lid between each turn, until pork loin is seared all around. Reduce heat to
    300F. Cook until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 150F

    Remove from the grill and let rest for 15 minutes. Slice in 1/2" thick
    pieces.

Assemble:

  1. Place bread slices on the grill and allow it to get grill marks, 1-2 min on
    each side.
  2. Add condiment of your choice, such as mayo-sriracha, and place a few pork
    slices on top of a bed of greens, shredded lettuce, mixed song greens, or
    arugula.

Cook Time: 50 minutes
Resting Pastry Time: 1 hour

Delicious and easy recipe for an amazing Grilled Skillet Blueberry Galette

Ingredients

GALETTE DOUGH

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4-1/2 oz., 9 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons ice-cold water

BLUEBERRY FILLING:

  • 12 ounces blueberries (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 tablespoon regular or coarse sugar

Instructions

GALETTE DOUGH

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Add butter,
    and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal, 8 to 10 seconds.
  2. With the machine running, add ice water in a slow, steady stream through the
    feed tube. Pulse until the dough begins to clump together in the bowl. Test by
    squeezing a small amount of dough together: if it holds, you are good to go; if
    it’s crumbly, add more ice-cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  3. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead once or twice to
    bring the dough into one mass.
  4. Pat the dough with your fingers and palms to form a disc about 3/4″ thick.
    Wrap in plastic and transfer to the refrigerator. Allow it to rest and chill
    for an hour.

Make a galette:

  1. Preheat grill to 300° Fahrenheit.
  2. Toss blueberries with lemon juice, lemon zest and sugar in a large bowl,
    then add cornstarch
  3. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a 10-12-inch round. You can also
    divide and make a few smaller galettes.
  4. Place rolled out dough in the oven/grill safe skillet, let the edges drape
    over.
  5. Mound blueberries in center of the dough, leaving a 2" border. Fold
    edges over, overlapping slightly. Brush dough with beaten egg and sprinkle with
    sugar.
  6. Bake galette until crust is dark golden brown and filling is bubbling, 45-50
    minutes. Let cool before serving with vanilla ice cream.
