Smoked Trout Breakfast SpreadJump to Recipe
This smoked trout breakfast spread is truly one of my favorite things to have in the fridge for quick breakfasts. It’s possible that I’m an outlier here as literally nobody else in my family would even try this recipe, but I find smoked trout to be delicious and when you mix it with cream cheese, bright capers, and a few other simple ingredients, it’s SO good smeared on toasted muffins or bagels.
Smoked trout is really a very mild fish and it doesn’t have a strong smoked flavor to it. You could substitute smoked salmon in this recipe, but it’ll have a much smokier base to it. The trout is surprisingly light and doesn’t have a fishy taste really.
The spread is great with nothing else, but I like to add some crispy thin veggies to the bagel or muffin as well for extra crunch and color. All together, it’s the kind of breakfast I could eat multiple times a week without any problem. And you can mix up a batch of it in literally ten minutes, even if you’re slow at mixing!
Raise your hand if you’re a smoked fish fan. Those who will not try this are missing out!
This easy breakfast spread is savory and rich. Made with flaked smoked trout and a few other simple ingredients, it’s perfect on bagels and toast topped with a few crunchy veggies!
- In a small bowl, mash together cream cheese, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, capers, scallions, and a pinch of salt. Mix well.
- Fold in flaked smoked trout. Try to keep it in chunks.
- Serve spread on toasted English Muffins or bagels with sliced radish and cucumber.
- Leftover spread will keep fine in the fridge for up to a week.
Smoked Trout Breakfast Spread
The only real important note about making this spread is to add your fish last. So start with the liquid stuff and the cream cheese. Mix that well.
Then add in the capers and scallions. I thought about adding some lemon zest also, but I think it would’ve overpowered the spread. You could try a little bit though if you like lemon.
Then finally, flake in the smoked trout! Try not to over mix it or the fish will just fall apart.
It’s a humble thing, but the taste is really wonderful.
I like this spread on English Muffins but it goes well on any toasted carb. Bread, bagels, you name it!
Add some crunchy veggies to the smoked trout breakfast spread and CHOMP!
