Bagels in 3 ways
Yesterday, I shared a simple wasabi-mayo bacon bagel recipe and today, I will share three more ways how I ate the sesame seed bagels that I bought from Marks and Spencer. They are very easy to make, so perfect for upcoming Easter brunch.
1. Bagel with brie, walnuts, and honeyFirst cut the brie in thick rectangular slices, place two or three (unsalted) walnuts on top of each brie slice, and finish it off with a generous drizzle of honey. The honey tends to flow all over the place very fast, so it is advised to eat immediately after making it. The sweetness of the honey and the savory of the brie cheese work very well together and the walnuts adds a nice crunch.
2. Bagel with herb butter and fresh chivesI didn't make the herb butter myself, as I just bought one from the supermarket. Just by adding the fresh chives, upgraded the whole thing. But if you have more time on your hands, you can buy fresh cream cheese and add the herbs of your own choice to it.
3. Bagel with smoked salmon, rocket leaves, pine nuts, and caesar salad dressingFirst, make a salad with rocket leaves, pine nuts, sesame oil, and balsamic vinegar (I used the one I received as a souvenir from Rome). Place some of the salad on one half of the bagel and add two slices of smoked salmon on top. Because I made the sesame oil and balsamic vinegar dressing for the first time, I was afraid it wouldn't have enough flavor, so I also added a dollop of caesar salad dressing on top. I thought that the cheese in the sauce would taste good with the salmon, since salmon and cream cheese work well together too, but it didn't taste very good. It was better to just leave out the caesar salad dressing. The sesame oil and balsamic vinegar dressing however, totally surprised me. I loved it a lot and made a lot of salads with it.
Doesn't it look more appetizing than a burger?
