caviar + everything bagel bites

caviar + everything bagel bites
  • Everything bagel spice

  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder

  • Cream cheese, at room temperature

  • Prepared pumpernickel bread slices, about 1/4-inch thick

  • Smoked trout roe caviar (we prefer The Caviar Co.), plus extra for garnish

  1. In a bowl, combine ingredients for everything bagel spice and set aside.

  2. Spread a thin, even layer of cream cheese over each pumpernickel bread slice. Using a round cookie cutter, cut out rounds from bread. Top each with a bit of everything bagel spice and caviar and continue with remaining bread and cream cheese.

Makes approximately 18-24.

cook’s note: It’s best to spread the cream cheese before cutting the bread into rounds so that you get nice, clean edges.
