Smoked salmon and cream cheese is a very popular combination.  There are lots of popular recipes that involve smoked salmon (a.k.a lox) and cream cheese – smoked salmon and cream cheese appetizer rolls, bagels with lox and cream cheese, and this one is the sandwich with salmon and cream cheese.

Salmon and cream cheese go so well together!  To make this yummy sandwich, spread a slice of bread with cream cheese and put slices of smoked salmon on top.  You can make it an open-face sandwich by using just one slice of bread, or make it a traditional sandwich by topping it with the second slice of bread (also spread with cream cheese).

Like all sandwiches, this lox sandwich is as good as the ingredients that go into it.  For the best smoked salmon sandwich, use the best smoked salmon, best cream cheese and best bread!  I always buy Costco smoked salmon – Costco has great quality smoked wild salmon for a great price – cheaper than I’ve ever seen in other grocery stores.  For cream cheese, I always stick with Philadelphia cream cheese brand, and for the bread, fresh bakery bread, of course, tastes best!

Cream cheese sandwiches make an excellent party appetizer.  To make the appetizer sandwiches, use a thin long french baguette and slice it into slices with serrated knife.  The fresh baguette makes perfectly sized small round bread slices that are so soft and tasty – a perfect appetizer portion!  Spread each round bread slice with cream cheese and top with smoke salmon.  Arrage those pretty small sandwiches on a large platter and you’ve got a perfect party starter – without any cooking!  It’s a perfect easy appetizer recipe – just what a busy host needs.  Another great thing is that most people love smoked salmon and cream cheese, and they will eat them those yummy little sandwiches in no time!
