Kippers on toast is an old-school classic and today we’re giving it a slight twist, making a delectable spread that is perfect for a light meal or mid-afternoon snack when served alongside Little Northern Bakehouse Everything Bagels!
Summer has felt like one long picnic to me- from quick salad bowls to pasta dishes galore, my quarantine recipe repertoire has mostly consisted of accessible pantry staples, and quite honestly, I don’t mind. How has quarantine changed your meal planning?
During the course of these somewhat turbulent/unpredictable months, I’ve come to appreciate two things – bagel seasoning and canned fish. Who knew!
While many of us may be familiar with sardines and anchovies, kippers seem to go unnoticed. (FYI, you can always swap mackerel, tuna fish, or sardines for kippers in today’s recipe if you don’t have them on hand).
Kippers are salted, cold-smoked herring that are packed with heart-healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, calcium, and potassium. They tend to be slightly more popular in England since they are reminiscent of the traditional Edwardian breakfast that would consist of toast, eggs, smoked fish, sausage, and beans, all served of course alongside “a spot of tea”.
Today however, I was inspired to share this underrated ingredient in a spread more suitable for the August-to-Autumn months ahead. This Kipper Sandwich Spread is an elegant and classic salad that may be enjoyed for lunch or as a light dinner.
I am very pleased to be partnering with my friends over at Little Northern Bakehouse once again to create an early fall recipe that can be served and enjoyed during this transitional period of seasons.

Harkening back to what I said earlier, I have been on an everything bagel kick lately, adding bagel seasoning to a grand variety of dishes; from eggs to pizza. Naturally, I opted to serve Little Northern Bakehouse Everything Bagels for my quick and easy luncheon. I toasted the bagels and served them open-faced. It was a match made in Heaven.
Feel free to get creative with what you garnish on the sandwich. While I prepared mine with red onion, heirloom tomatoes, avocados, cucumbers, and olives to keep things fresh, seasonal, and light you certainly may create your own preference for seasonal garnishes.
And voilà! Now you’re ready to head outdoors and enjoy the lasting golden days of the season with this easy-to-create picnic spread!
