Everything Bagel Flatbread and Lox

A fellow college alum, Brigitte Nguyen, posted a recipe that I knew I had to make ASAP!!!  She is the host of several TV shows, From the Kitchens of... and KY Proud Kitchen, (both definitely worth checking out) and is such a sweet and wonderful person!  If you are in the Bluegrass region of KY, the KY Proud Kitchen comes on Sundays on Fox 56 at 10:30 AM--definitely a must-see!!!  Now onto the food!

I love smoked salmon and cream cheese and onions--practically everything that on this flatbread.  So it was a no-brainer to try it.  Plus, my mother, brother, and I were wondering what to have for dinner on one of the last nights he was with us, and this definitely fit the bill--easy, healthy, and delicious!

{Everything flatbread!}

{I used a Pampered Chef cheese slicer to get my cucumbers paper thin!}

{I might have left this in the oven a few minutes too long, but that's okay!}

{Spread cream cheese}

{I layered mine up with cucumbers!}

{Finished flatbread--doesn't it look heavenly?  It was, and it was incredibly easy!}
