Everything Kaiser Roll with Lox, Greek Cream Cheese, Cucumbers and Purple Onion

P1190136

Things changed, time changed most of us busy moms do not always have time to spend an hour or two cooking breakfast.  But the great thing, that even when you are in a rush, you still can whip out a great meal for your family.  This dish does not really require any cooking skills and is probably sold in every cafe or even supermarket, but we still love it and enjoy having it every now and then.  Actually probably everyone has their favorite bagel combinations, whether it’s egg and cheese, butter and jelly or maybe even one of the fancier versions like butter and caviar.  My favorite has always been: cream cheese, smoked salmon and purple onions.  I also always prefer everything bagels, the more spices and variety on it the better for me.  When I bake breads, I also try to put few kinds of spices, grains and seeds on it to add more flavor to them.

While I like bagels, I rarely see everything Kaiser Rolls.  These rolls are mostly sold plain or maybe with sesame seeds.  Now that fairway makes them in different combinations, we prefer them instead of bagels.  Why you would ask?  Well because it doesn’t have a whole in the middle, it tastes almost just like a bagel, but maybe a little softer and they also come in small sizes, which is perfect for kids meals.

As a result, this dish was done with everything Kaiser Mini Roll.  I could never go wrong if I offer my daughter a fresh Bagel or Kaiser Roll (that tastes just like a bagel) in morning and I guess I was able to pass some of my taste habits to her as well.  I mean not every kid would eat purple onions and lox for breakfast!   Luckily for me, my daughter loves it, so in our family it is a kid friendly meal.  I also always try to make our meals healthier everyday, in addition to everything Kaiser Rolls…we also discovered an amazing new product at Fairway – Greek Cream Cheese!

It has much less calories, more protein and even Greek Yogurt in it!  Tastes very soft and creamy, I would gladly use it again instead of a regular cream cheese for many more recipes to come.  For those of you who are interested, here is their product website information http://www.franklinfoods.com/greek-cream-cheese!

Ingredients:

How to Make Everything Kaiser Roll with Greek Cream Cheese, Cucumbers, Lox and Purple Onion:

1.  Wash and trim the ends of your cucumber.  Slice your cucumbers thin, this is very important so this mini bagel stays in place and they can be layered nicely.  I usually use my Mandoline slicer for it and put it on the smallest setting, they come out almost paper thin and are easily layered.  Some of you have asked which brand I prefer, I haven’t really tried many brands, but I own the Cuisinart one and pretty happy with it, here is a link to it if you want to look into it..it’s also listed under our shop page.

2.  Then cut 1/3 of your purple onion, peel the top layer and also slice a little but of it using the same setting on the slicer.

3.  Take out few slices of your smoked salmon.  We had the Fairway Brand, not our favorite but still pretty good.

4.  Slice your Kaiser Roll in half and spread your Cream Cheese on the bottom layer.  We used a Greek cream cheese which is less in calories, but yet has nice rich and creamy taste.

5.  Start layering your roll.  Add your purple onion on the top of your Cream Cheese spreading them evenly over the Kaiser Roll.

6.  Then add your cucumbers, it will not be difficult spreading them around since they are small and thin.

7.  Finally add your Lox as the top layer, spread the top part of the roll with more cream cheese, put it back on the Kaiser Roll and your breakfast is ready!
