Avocado Toast on a Bagel
with smoked salmon / marinated tomatoes

Active: 35 Total: 35

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.
