1 plain or everything bagel
2-3 ounces of smoked salmon
2-3 tablespoons of cream cheese
Thinly sliced red onion
Fresh dill (optional)
Slice the bagel in half horizontally.
Toast the bagel halves until they are golden brown and crispy.
Spread a generous layer of cream cheese on each bagel half.
Lay the smoked salmon evenly over the cream cheese on both halves.
Top the salmon with a few slices of red onion and sprinkle some capers on top.
If desired, add some fresh dill for an extra burst of flavor.
Squeeze a bit of lemon juice over the smoked salmon to enhance the taste.
Place the two bagel halves together to form a sandwich.
Serve your smoked salmon bagel immediately as an open-faced sandwich or as a traditional sandwich.
