Bagel with butter and salami

Author Notes

This is one of the all time favorite breakfasts and snacks in my family. We grew up eating our bagels with salami instead of with cream cheese. I guess we're kind of weird. But, it's a delicious combination. —fiveandspice

  • Serves 1-2
  • 1 bagel – whatever (savory) flavor you prefer (I like plain or sesame)
  • good salted butter
  • a few very thin slices of salami
In This Recipe
  1. Slice your bagel in half and toast it until it is golden brown. Spread each half with a generous smear of butter. Lay a couple of thin slices of salami on each half. Eat each half as an open-faced sandwich. Bliss.

I like to say I'm a lazy iron chef (I just cook with what I have around), renegade nutritionist, food policy wonk, and inveterate butter and cream enthusiast! My husband and I own a craft distillery in Northern Minnesota called Vikre Distillery (www.vikredistillery.com), where I claimed the title, "arbiter of taste." I also have a doctorate in food policy, for which I studied the changes in diet and health of new immigrants after they come to the United States. I myself am a Norwegian-American dual citizen. So I have a lot of Scandinavian pride, which especially shines through in my cooking on special holidays. Beyond loving all facets of food, I'm a Renaissance woman (translation: bad at focusing), dabbling in a variety of artistic and scientific endeavors.
