I know what you’re thinking: how many recipes is this girl going to invent that taste like everything bagels without actually being everything bagels? Goooooood question. Truthfully, there’s no end in sight for my love of everything bagel seasoning mix and ideas to use it. I’ve already made (and loved) everything bagel quinoa cakes, crusted salmon, bloody marys, pizza, and of course, the thing that started it all: The Everything English Muffin. If for some reason, you are crazy and don’t like the flavor of everything bagels, I’m sorry. I really am. I’m sorry you’re crazy.
Everybody knows it’s not a big game party without a great dip, but I get a little tired of crackers and chips. Let’s make breadsticks for dippin’. Everything bagel breadsticks, naturally. This was my first time making homemade breadsticks (yeast and all!), and I was very happy with how they turned out. They were actually quite simple, as they didn’t require any rise time at all. Just mix, knead, roll out on a baking pan, sprinkle with the bagel goodness, and bake.
While the breadsticks bake, it’s time to get your Smoked Salmon Dip on. Cream cheese and sour cream are whipped until light and fluffy, then flavored up with chopped smoked salmon, capers, herbs, lemon juice and Dijon mustard. I also added a spoonful of Gallo Family Vineyards Pinot Grigio, since I knew I would be opening a bottle to serve alongside this dish.
The bright citrus notes of pinot grigio pair perfectly with the smoke and seafood flavors of the dip, and the lightly acidic nature of the wine cuts right through all the creaminess to refresh your palate for the next bite. Because when it comes to dip, I’m all about the next bite. And then the next. Dip is almost certainly one of my favorite foods, and I’m not at all embarrassed to admit it.
Use the Gallo store locator to find your own bottle of pinot grigio for your Supper Bowl, and check out more ideas for football finger foods and tips for hosting a big game party. Also, be sure to connect with Gallo Family Vineyards on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
