I used to use two tubes of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls to make this recipe. But now they sell a sheet of it to bake that makes it easier. I never know sizes, but I have a smaller baking sheet that fits the whole thing. You can use a bigger baking sheet, just be sire to press out your crescent roll sheets so that they have minimal holes and they are not too thin. This bakes up beautifully and makes a tender flaky base for the smoked salmon and cream cheese.
Make It Your Own
I include toppings for this Everything But The Bagel flatbread, but feel free to make it your own. I like the smoked salmon you see here from Aldi. You can also use avocado, ham, capers, dill, or anything else you think would be delicious with the cream cheese mixture. The Smoked Salmon goes really well with the salty, nutty flavors of the cream cheese with the toasted sesame oil and the soy sauce along with the celery salt.
Veggies And More
I like to partially peel the cucumbers so that there is still hints of green. I slice them fairly thinly so that each bite is nice and even. You do not want to have huge bites of cucumber when trying to bite into the tender crescent crust and soft, smokey, salmon. I like to use the red onion for this recipe because I love the crunch, but you can also use green onions if you like.
- 1 Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheet
- 2 3 ounce packages of smoked salmon ( I use the one from Aldi)
- 1 8 ounce package of cream cheese
- 1/4 cup (approximately) of thinly sliced chives
- 1/2 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil
- 1/4 teaspoon of soy sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon of celery salt
- 1 seedless cucumber, I lightly peel it leaving SOME green strips, wash and slice very thinly
- 1/2 medium red onion, finely diced
- Everything But The Bagel Seasoning
- Use a baking sheet, I try to use one that fits the crescent roll sheet. Cover in foil and spray the foil with a very light coating of non stick spray.
- Press out your crescent roll sheet to the edges of the pan if you’re using the same sized pan. If not roll it out and press it out evenly, but not super thin.
- Heat your oven to 350 degrees and bake the sheet until it is fully baked. Mine took about 12 minutes, every oven will be different. Pull it out when it is golden brown.
- Bring your cream cheese to room temp. I use a hand mixer or stand mixer and add the cream cheese to it and whip the cream cheese until it is light and fluffy. I do not add a very thick layer of cream cheese to this flatbread but if you want more cream cheese thickness, add more. Next, add the celery salt and the toasted sesame oil and the soy sauce. This all gives a great flavor to the cream cheese that goes well with the salmon. Whip for a few minutes.
- Slowly fold in the the thinly sliced chives.
- When the crescent roll is done, let it cool. If you are making this ahead of time. You can keep the crescent roll and cream cheese separate until the next day. Cover the crescent roll and leave on counter. Refrigerate the cream cheese.
- When the crescent is cool, spread the cream cheese mixture to the ends. I like a thinner layer.
- Next, carefully peel your salmon from the package and layer it on top of the cream cheese, pressing it down slightly.
- Layer the cucumbers and then sprinkle the red onion. Then sprinkle the whole thing with the Everything But The Bagel Seasoning. You can also add more sliced chives or capers if you like. Fresh Dill is nice as well.
- Let this set up in the fridge for at least an hour if you want it to cut easier. Otherwise, make sure you use a sharp knife when cutting into squares. You can refrigerate this up to 8 hours before cutting.
Everything But The Bagel
If you aren’t familiar with the Everything But The Bagel seasoning I will link one here. It is simply a blend of onion, sesame seeds, poppy seeds and garlic. I find this blend everywhere , including aldi and walmart. You can make your own by checking the ingredients and creating your own blend.
