This quick recipe is a great way to use up old bread. Serve with wine and a nice side salad for a bistro-style meal. For a vegetarian option, substitute slices of Granny Smith apples and old Cheddar cheese for the smoked salmon and cream cheese. You can substitute Italian seasoning for the herbes de Provence, if desired. You can use any artisinal-style bread in place of the French bread.

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, dip bread in egg mixture, turning once to coat bread completely. Transfer coated bread to prepared skillet and cook in hot butter until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer toasted bread to a paper-towel lined plate. Repeat with remaining bread slices.

  • Cook and stir spinach in the same skillet until slightly wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Spread cream cheese onto 2 slices of toasted bread. Top each with spinach and smoked salmon, and place remaining slices of bread on top.

I'm always looking for new ways to use all the salmon we get. This one was unique. It was good. I might try it next time as a triple decker. Another thought is to add a Monte-Cristo twist and use some kind of preserves (I'm thinking apple might be best). Read More

Used more like - 1 tsp herbs de provence and omitted spinach. It was ok... a bit bland. I felt like as a sandwich it was too much bread. I liked it better served open faced. Maybe a little onion or capers would bring it to life. Read More

This was very good. I had never had smoked salmon before and picked this recipe to try it. I liked this best when I had warmed the salmon up in the microwave a bit rather than cold or room temp..and I liked this best with the herbs de provence rather than the italian seasoning. Read More
