Everything Bagel Breadsticks & Smoked Salmon Dip

Everything Bagel Breadsticks with Smoked Salmon Dip - A party-perfect take on a breakfast classic! | foxeslovelemons.com

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.

Everything Bagel Breadsticks & Smoked Salmon Dip
Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 18 minutes


For the Everything Bagel Breadsticks:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, divided
  • 1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups warm milk (about 120 degrees F)
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided, plus additional for work surface
  • 4 teaspoons Everything Bagel Seasoning Mix

For the Smoked Salmon Dip:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Gallo Family Vineyards Pinot Grigio
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces smoked salmon, chopped
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill


  1. Make the Everything Bagel Breadsticks: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Brush rimmed baking pan with 1-1/2 tablespoons butter.
  2. In large bowl, whisk yeast, sugar and salt until well combined. Whisk in milk and 1 cup flour until dry ingredients are moistened. Gradually whisk in remaining 2-1/2 cups flour. On a lightly floured work surface, knead dough 4 to 6 minutes or until smooth.
  3. Place dough on prepared baking pan and roll or pat into 10 x 12-inch rectangle (if it's more like an oval, that's fine). Using a pizza cutter to score the dough (make surface-deep cuts, but don't cut all the way through), score the dough in half lengthwise, then crosswise into 1-1/2 inch strips.
  4. Brush dough with remaining 1-1/2 tablespoons butter and sprinkle with seasoning mix. Use more or less seasoning mix depending on your taste, but be sure to use a bit more than you think you need, as some of the mix will fall off when you're cutting and serving the breadsticks.
  5. Transfer to oven and bake 18 to 20 minutes or until bottom is golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
  6. Meanwhile, make the Smoked Salmon Dip: If desired, set aside a bit of smoked salmon, chives, dill and/or capers to use as garnish. In mixing bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream, lemon juice, mustard, wine, salt and pepper on medium speed until light and fluffy. Gently fold in salmon, capers, chives and dill. Transfer to serving bowl and garnish as desired. Serve with Everything Bagel Breadsticks.
