Quick Pickles Smoked Trout Herbed Cream Cheese Bagels – A vibrant twist on Bagels and Lox, incorporating freshly-made quick pickles, garlic dill herbed cream cheese, smoked trout, and crispy everything bagels.
Quick Pickles with Smoked Trout on Herbed Cream Cheese Bagels… Whew! I realize that is an absurdly long recipe title, but it just didn’t feel right to leave anything out.
Every element of this simple toasted bagel stack is a thing of beauty, and needs to be celebrated equally.
Herbs are starting to pop up in my container garden. Dill is always among the first round of herbs to arrive. Its’s a light fragrant herb, perfect for spring dishes.
Dill is suitable to use with delicate ingredients, yet can hold its own against stronger flavors… like homemade quick pickles and smoked trout.
Today I used fresh dill in an herbed cream cheese with garlic and lemon zest, to spread on toasted Thomas’ Everything Bagels. Thomas’ bagels are known for their soft bubbly interior and chewy exterior. A combination that provides a perfect crunch when toasted.
Nothing compares to the zingy quality of homemade herbed cream cheese over a hot crispy bagel. The vibrant herb flavors complement the seeded golden crust on the bagels, and the textures and temperatures provide a creamy-crisp hot-cold sensation that is hard to beat.
After spreading each bagel with ample amounts of cream cheese, I topped them with thinly sliced smoked trout, and easy homemade quick pickles.
Quick pickles are light, perky, and take almost no time to make. Simply place thin cucumber rounds in a warm briny pickling liquid, and a few minutes later you have magic.
Quick Pickles Smoked Trout Herbed Cream Cheese Bagels are an elegant, yet comforting, dish for a spring breakfast, brunch, or lunch. With fresh flavors, and crispy Thomas’ bagels, this “bagels and lox” variation will truly give you something to celebrate!
