Smoked Salmon Bagels.

Hello everybody.

Thought I’d do some fresh bagels today,still have a pack of smoked salmon so a well combined rich bagel would be a lovely lunch for sure.

Did the same recipe as before, though today dough was so sticky so I added some more flour for easier handling.

Filled some with salmon, avocado, cream cheese, dill and capers and others with cheese,tomatoes and rocca.






Hello everybody.

Housework and cleaning up today, too much dust in this country.

When done I was looking for something to do for a quick breakfast cause my son wants something ready to go or easy to fix each morning before going to the university.

Crossed over this bagels’ recipe and thought I’d give it a try,resembles a lot the soft pretzels one, result was not bad I guess waiting for the boys to judge.


Lunch was leftover lasagna with some chili potatoes with garlic and coriander.

I also made dried fruit cake,light and not sweet to have with Nescafe in the morning.
