Chopped Bagel Sandwich Recipe (Easy Breakfast Sandwich)


  • 1 large bagel (choose your favorite type; sesame, everything, and plain work particularly well)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons Very Muy Rico hot sauce, or adjust to taste
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon
  • 1/8 red onion
  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained
  • A few leaves of lettuce (romaine, butter lettuce, or arugula for a peppery note)


1. Prep the Bagel:

  • Toast the Bagel: Slice the bagel in half and toast it to your liking, aiming for a crispy exterior while still soft inside. Once toasted, let it cool slightly on a rack to maintain its crispness.

2. Chopping and Mixing

  • On a large cutting board, combine smoked salmon, red onion, capers, lettuce, cream cheese, and Very Muy Rico hot sauce. Chop and mix together with a chef's knife or baking scraper until evenly blended and finely chopped.

3. Assemble the Sandwich:

  • Spread on Bagel: Evenly spread the chopped and mixed filling over one half of the toasted bagel. Ensure a generous and even layer for maximum flavor.

4. Garnish and Serve:

  • Garnish: Optionally, sprinkle some fresh dill or a dash of hot sauce for extra flavor and presentation.
  • Serve: Cap it with the other bagel half or serve open-faced. Enjoy immediately for the best taste and texture experience.

This recipe delivers a packed and flavorful sandwich, combining the rich textures and tastes of smoked salmon, cream cheese, and fresh vegetables with the zesty kick of Very Muy Rico hot sauce, all held together by a freshly toasted bagel. Perfect for a luxurious breakfast or a satisfying brunch.
