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.

Ingredients

  • 1 Bagel 6 oz.
  • 1 tablespoon whipped cream cheese split in half
  • 1 teaspoon chives chopped
  • 1/2 Avocado thinly sliced
  • 3 ounces thin-sliced smoked salmon

  • Fresh Organic Spinach or lettuce

Other additions

  • Red onion
  • Drained Capers
  • Fresh Dill
  • Za’atar

Instructions

  1. SLICE bagel in half horizontally. Mine was presliced, so I just carefully separated both pieces.
  2. Spread BOTH sides with cream cheese and sprinkle with the chopped chives.
  3. Over cheese on 1 bagel half, layer English cucumber or mini cucumber, thinly sliced avocado, smoked salmon, spinach – now, it a good time to add other additions such as red onion and/or capers.
  4. Set remaining bagel half, cream cheese side down, over filling.

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)

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.

Homemade Naan

Homemade Naan

If you have never made this flatbread before, then my friends, it is the time for you to make homemade naan. It’s easy, delicious, and perfect for wraps, with grilled food or you can simply make naan pizza.

You all know that I love bread as much as I love making it. We were not able to eat anything without it for so long, but this one is requested in my house almost daily.

Homemade Naan

Once you succeed making it there is no going back to store-bought, and I have a perfect recipe for it. I have been testing this one many times because I could not find regular instant yeast.

So with that in mind, I found yeast for pizza this time around which is fast-acting yeast and was actually perfect for quick naan. Anyways, I wanted to test it just because I assume at this time many people have a hard time finding regular yeast.

It took me 5 minutes to put it together, 30 minutes to rise, and about 20 minutes or so to flatten out and cook in my skillet.

Homemade Naan

I tested my first one with a generous drop of oil, which I smeared all over the skillet’s bottom and dropped my first naan. The pockets start to form and I was jumping for joy. Small things make me happy so this was really joyful moment for me – successfully made naan.

My dear family asked for another batch, then another, and soon after it became one of their favorite flatbread.

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour 27 minutes

If you have never made this flatbread before, then my friends, it is the time for you to make homemade naan. It’s easy, delicious, and perfect for wraps, with grilled food or you can simply make naan pizza.

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/4 cup warm water (10 fl oz/295ml, you can add a splash more if needed)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (15g)
  • 1 package active dry yeast *read notes (2 1/4 teaspoon)
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour + 1/2 cup extra for later (500g)
  • 2 teaspoons salt (11.70g)
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt (65g)
  • 1 large egg, mixed
  • 1/8 cup oil, approximately (30 ml) + 1 tablespoon to grease a bowl

OPTIONAL Topping:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted (57g)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder or 2 to 3 minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

Instructions

  1. Stir together warm water and sugar, then add yeast and mix.
  2. In the other large bowl or a bowl of your standup mixer combine salt and flour, then stir.
  3. Turn your mixer to the lower speed with hook attachment or use a wooden spoon to mix and add water with sugar and yeast a bit at the time, then add yogurt and finally drop in the mixed egg.
  4. Increase the speed until you form a dough, about two minutes.
  5. It will be a bit sticky but remove dough from the mixing bowl, and use your hands to shape it into a ball.
  6. Grease a bowl with approx one tablespoon of oil. Place dough it back in the greased bowl, cover, and allow it to rise for 45 to 60 minutes at room temperature. I like keeping mine either in the microwave or turned off oven. If you are using Pizza yeast, fast and easy then I allow the dough just to rest for 20 to 30 minutes before working with it.
  7. Once the dough is ready, transfer it to a floured work area. I just keep dusting with flour as I roll out each naan.
  8. Using a knife or a pastry scraper, cut the dough into 10 equal pieces.
  9. Roll each into a ball with your hands, then place on the floured surface and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into whatever shape it takes you until the dough is about 1/8 to 1/4-inch thick. They need to be thinner so there is no need to measure. They are perfectly imperfect.
  10. Now, heat a large cast-iron skillet or any type of skillet/pan over medium-high heat.
  11. Brush with oil then drop naan to the skillet and cook for a minute or two, flipping a few times. When naan begins to bubble and the bottom turns lightly golden and darker flip. I would say about 30-40 seconds before flipping on the other side. Make sure to work with the heat. I keep mine at medium temperature but manipulate as I go, meaning I turn the temperature a bit down if naan needs to cook more.
  12. Then transfer the naan to a separate plate, and cover with a towel. Repeat with remaining dough until all of the naan pieces are cooked.
  13. This part is optional: I made them plain so kids could make "sweet" sandwiches however, with garlic butter they are even better. Heat the butter in a small pan over medium heat until melted. Add garlic powder or raw minced garlic and cook for a minute then add about 1 tablespoon of dried parsley. Then remove butter from heat. Brush on each of naan on both sides.
  14. Cover if you are not going to serve right away and heat before serving.
  15. After they are cooled enough pack them in some wax paper or parchment paper and in an airtight container. They are amazing even the next day if you have any leftovers.

Notes

I used regular instant yeast as well as Fleischmann’s fast and easy pizza yeast. I liked using Fleischmann’s yeast designed for pizza because it is really quick.
Like I said if you are going with instant yeast you can expect the dough to double in size in less than one hour but with Fleischmann’s pizza yeast less than 30 minutes.
