Avocado Toast on a Bagel
with smoked salmon / marinated tomatoes
This is no ordinary avocado toast. Add smoked salmon and serve the whole thing on a bagel for a substantial meal that you'll want to eat with a knife and fork. We last featured this meal in 2020.
Smarts: We couldn't resist adding the option of sprinkling Everything Bagel Seasoning on top of this dish. This seasoning mix is becoming more widely available and there are plenty of recipes online, but feel free to skip it if you prefer.

Salmon - Slice or tear salmon into small pieces that will easily fit on bagel halves.

Set bagel halves out on serving plates, cut-side up. Spread each half with mashed avocado. Top with salmon and arugula.
Serve bagels with tomatoes on the side. Enjoy!
I used premade guacamole to make it super easy. I love simple quick meals on the menu sometimes!0 Helpful
This was a great meal for a hot day! We have an egg poacher so didn't even have to turn on the stove.0 Helpful

Nothing against this recipe -we gave it a try but my family just doesn’t love smoked salmon. Next time I’ll do the egg version!0 Helpful
Nice, fast meal. We had a leftover cucumber, so added that to the tomatoes, and it was perfect. Made things a little brighter and helped balance the savoy aspects of the meal.0 Helpful
