Smoked Salmon Bagel Sandwich…a quick meal for those on the go

The best thing about a sandwich is the quick turnaround in making this meal. The concept of quickly preparing brunch, lunch or dinner by putting ingredients that you have on hand between two slices of bread is genius. With many of us very busy these days, it’s the best way to prep a meal without much fuss in the kitchen. You can even keep it very healthy by using whole grain breads and filling the sandwich with fresh vegetables and proteins.

A great brunch sandwich which I have on occasion is a Smoked Salmon Bagel Sandwich. It’s so good and so easy. Recipe follows.
