Okay so this is my new favorite brunch idea, HELLO!!! 

everything puff pastry

A few weeks ago my mom asked me what to serve for a little lunch party. After giving her a few suggestions, it really solidified a perfect lunch menu for me. A puff pastry tart is just too good to pass up. Because it’s easy but fancy. And super versatile.

You can serve it with a soup. 

You can serve it with a salad.

Or you could serve it with both! 

cream cheese puff pastry

It’s so light but in a way, feels like pizza. I mean, we all know I love a good puff pastry pizza. Because I’ve even made a breakfast version of one before too. 

It’s easily customizable too. 

Which is what I really love about this one and why you should make it in the first place. What would you put on a smoked salmon bagel? Put it on here! What would you leave off? Don’t add it. Make it yours, throw whatever you’d like on top, add something equally as delicious.

The puff pastry has a perfect everything border. It’s the best! I first started making my own everything seasoning when testing recipes for Seriously Delish. It’s easy to make and you can store it in your pantry. I love that you can make a huge batch of it and have it for everyday use. 

Likewise, you could just buy the jarred version too – whichever works for you.

After the pastry is baked, you slather the whole dang thing with cream cheese. WHIPPED cream cheese. This is important! You gotta use the whipped version. First, the pastry is so flakey and delicate that it’s difficult to spread anything on top. Second, the whipped cream cheese is lightly and fluffier and makes the spreading part easier. 

Not to mention, you want it to look pretty. But don’t worry about removing some of the flakey bits. You’re going to cover the cream cheese up anyway!

Then!

We finally top it with smoked salmon.

A sprinkling of pickled onions, or if you’re in a pinch, very thinly sliced red onion.

Some dill or other delicious herbs you love.

Capers! You know I love that briney punch. 

Maybe one more pinch of everything seasoning.

And definitely a big squeeze of fresh lemon.

THIS IS SO GOOD.

So lovely for a brunch or a lunch or just a snack on the weekend. It’s easy and delish and different enough from your regular old bagel.

It’s crispy and crunchy and everything I love so much.

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed if frozen
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons everything seasoning (recipe below)
  • 1 large egg + 1 teaspoon water, lightly beaten for egg wash
  • 2/3 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 3 to 4 ounces smoked salmon
  • quick pickled onions, for garnish
  • fresh dill, for sprinkling
  • capers, for garnish
  • thinly sliced lemon

my everything seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (I also added in black sesame here!)
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon flaked sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  • Place a sheet of puff pastry on the baking sheet. Poke holes all over the puff pastry with a fork. Brush the entire thing with the egg wash. Sprinkle the edges of the sheet with the everything seasoning.
  • Bake the puff pastry for 20 to 25 minutes, until it’s golden brown and puffy, If it’s puffed up a lot in the center, you can poke it with a fork to deflate it a bit.
  • Let the pastry cool slightly. Gently spread the cream cheese over the tart. This will be tricky because it will lift a few flakey bits from the top of the pastry, but that’s okay! That’s why it is important to use whipped cream cheese - it is light and fluffy and not as heavy as the non-whipped cream cheese.
  • Layer the smoked salmon on top of the cream cheese. Sprinkle on the pickled onions, fresh dill, capers and another pinch of everything seasoning. Add on a squeeze of fresh lemon. Slice and serve!

my everything seasoning

  • Stir everything together until combined. This makes extra so store it sealed in your pantry!

It’s everything! Literally.

Brisket melts might be my new favorite thing!

This pumpkin beer brisket melts are smothered in havarti cheese and served on everything pretzel rolls. They are ridiculously delicious!

Because ‘tis the season for comfort food.

And comfort food this is. 

It’s a dreamy, cheese smothered sandwich that is decadent and goes great with an icy beer. 

brisket in the slow cooker

There is so much going on in this recipe but I promise it all comes together to create a flavor explosion. 

First, brisket slow cooked in pumpkin beer (or you could use cider!) then pulled and shredded to create the best sandwich ever. 

The brisket goes on pretzel rolls that have been showered in everything seasoning (I shared my own recipe for everything seasoning here!), making you feel like you could never have another pretzel without everything again!

Havarti cheese makes our melt happen. 

Then! Then you swirl together some honey mustard with a touch a mayo to create the most incredible spread. It’s unreal. It’s delicious. It takes things over the top!

everything pretzel buns

I’ve found the slow cooker to be my favorite way to make pulled brisket. It comes out so tender and wonderful. And this is the slow cooker I use, which you know I’m obsessed with because you can sear right in the cooker! It’s the best ever.

For the pretzel buns?

Well, back in the day I used to make them at home ALL the time. But now I can find them more easily – they are more accessible! So sometimes I buy them too, depending on how fresh they are. The good news is that however you get them, whether you make them from scratch or buy them, you can still brush them with butter and cover them in everything seasoning.

They are delish.

These melts are perfect for a fall weekend or even for Halloween night. You can make the brisket ahead of time (or do it in the slow cooker all day, the day of!) and assemble the sandwiches when you’re ready to serve. They are RICH, and they go perfectly with a big greens salad.

Or fries or chips, of course.

This pumpkin beer brisket melts are smothered in havarti cheese and served on everything pretzel rolls. They are ridiculously delicious!

  • 1 batch of pretzel rolls, (homemade or store bought!)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, (melted)
  • 2 tablespoons everything seasoning

slow cooker brisket

  • 3 to 4 pounds beef brisket
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 ounces pumpkin beer or cider
  • sliced harvarti cheese, (for melting)
  • microgreens or arugula, (for serving)

honey mustard spread

  • 1/2 cup honey mustard
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

pretzel buns

  1. Whether your pretzel buns are homemade or store bought, I like to cover them in everything seasoning! Right before serving the sandwiches, heat your oven to 325 degrees, just to warm them for the sandwiches. Brush the tops with the melted butter and sprinkle the everything seasoning on top. Place the buns in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes.

slow cooker brisket

  1. Season the brisket all over with the paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place it in your slow cooker and cover it with the beer. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  2. When finished, if the brisket is still in one piece, remove it and place it on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife and a fork to shred the brisket (you can also do this in the slow cooker) and then place it back in the cooker for another 30 minutes or so on low. It should combine with the juices and soak some of them up. You also may need to toss the beef a few times in the crockpot.
  3. To assemble the sandwiches, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. If you have just prepped the pretzel buns, it will already be on! Spread some of the honey mustard mayo on the bottom of your bun. Top with the brisket, then a slice of havarti cheese.
  4. Stick the sandwiches in the oven for 5 to 6 minutes, just until the cheese melts. Remove the sandwiches and top with a handful of microgreens or arugula. Top with your everything pretzel bun and serve!

honey mustard spread

  1. Whisk together the mustard and mayo and use immediately as a spread on sandwiches!

I mean, there is some green in there!
