Smoked Salmon Schmear

Occasionally, I like a good lightly toasted bagel schmeared with cream cheese and topped with slices of savory smoked salmon.  But then I recently thought, “what would it be like if I combined the two?”  That is, incorporate the smoked salmon into the schmear?  Well, I decided to do just that! Along with a couple of herbs, the results were just as delicious!


Cream cheese and salmon become very flexible in this form.  Not only is a great spread for delicious bagels on the go, but you can also enjoy it on toast, crostini, or crackers, scoop it up with bagel or tortilla chips, or even between a sliced croissant with a some lettuce and tomato.  Best of all, it’s very very simple to make!  Here’s what to do:



  • 12 oz. tub cream cheese spread
  • 8 oz. smoked salmon, finely minced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp chopped dill
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives
  • Pepper to taste


Simply combine all of the above ingredients in a large bowl and beat with a hand mixer until well-combined and smooth.  It’s that simple!

Hope you enjoy it!
