Some brunch ideas are way overdone, chief among them an array of bagels and cream cheese. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good bagel, but I rarely eat them since I don’t love the way they make me feel afterward. By far my favorite bagel is the everything variety, and if that’s your jam, you can get after a homemade version right here! If, however, the idea of using that everything topping on a golden fluffy biscuit sounds unbelievable, then say hello to your new favorite brunch idea.
Everything biscuits with smoked salmon and homemade veggie cream cheese are where it’s at. I have to say, I was very excited about the prospect of this combination and it ended up totally exceeding my expectations. While it is certainly still rich as some bagel sandwiches can be, the fluffy texture of the biscuit makes such a difference.
As any truly great brunch recipe should be, this is amenable to prepping in advance. The cream cheese can be made anytime and refrigerated until needed. Similarly the biscuits can be prepped and either covered in the fridge overnight, or frozen in advance and baked straight from the freezer. You could certainly add the typical red onion, capers and perhaps tomato. I was content with a hefty dose of microgreens. If you love the classic bagel with smoked salmon, I hope you give this new spin a try!
