Honey Smoked Salmon Bagel - Cuso Cuts

Bagels have so many applications. Besides my honey smoked salmon bagel, you can load them with any lunchmeat, cheese, jelly, cream cheese, hummus, avocado… well, you get the picture. Bagels are also sturdy compared to other bready items that fall apart before you finish eating. 

If you wanted, you could add a piece of fresh lettuce or onion to the salmon on top before closing up this tasty treat.

PitMaster’s Memo

Bages are often eaten for breakfast or a snack. They’re made from flour, yeast, salt, and sugar. This creates a spongy texture with a distinct “chew.” The baker hand shapes the dough into a ring and boils it for a short time in water. Afterward, they bake the bagels. I may add an egg yolk or milk wash during baking for a glossy sheen.
