They might be called sandwiches at any other time of day, but our warm and creamy toasted smoked-salmon “breakwiches” are especially satisfying in the morning.


  • 8 slice(s) bread, 100% whole-grain
  • 2 ounce(s) cream cheese, reduced-fat
    (1/4 cup)
  • 6 ounce(s) fish, smoked salmon
    thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon chives, fresh
  • peppercorns, black
    freshly ground, to taste
  • 4 teaspoon vegetable oil spread, butter-flavored


  • 1

    Lay bread on a work surface; spread each slice with 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese. Divide smoked salmon among 4 of the slices. Sprinkle salmon evenly with chives and pepper. Top with remaining bread slices to make 4 sandwiches.

  • 2

    In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the vegetable oil spread over medium heat. Add 2 sandwiches, weight down with a heavy pan, and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.

  • 3

    Repeat with remaining vegetable oil spread and sandwiches. Cut sandwiches in half and serve warm.
