Gluten-Free Bagels with Smoked Salmon Schmear

Bagels and lox (smoked salmon) go together like peanut butter and jelly! With some fresh dill and capers – now that’s just the icing on the cake. But what if we take it a step further and infuse the cream cheese with smoked salmon and dill? I think that’s worth trying, don’t you? If so, you’ll love this Gluten-Free Bagels with Smoked Salmon Schmear recipe.

In this recipe, I combined in a food processor cream cheese, salmon, horseradish, lemon juice, fresh dill, and black pepper. Then you just slather it on a bagel – I used The Greater Knead plain bagels – and top it with more smoked salmon, some thinly sliced red onion, radish, and/or cucumber, a sprinkling of capers, and some additional fresh dill. We just upped our bagel game ten-fold!
