Gorgeous Smoked Salmon Quiche with the easiest 5-ingredient everything bagel spice crust that anyone can make! This show-stopping brunch main is inspired by a lox everything bagel sandwich with cream cheese, tomatoes, and capers. Fluffy, homemade quiche is easier than you think and so delicious!


Units Scale

For the crust*:

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (can sub all purpose flour)
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil (or neutral oil of choice)
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp everything bagel seasoning

For the quiche:

  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk of choice (can use unsweetened almond milk, oat milk, whole milk, etc)**
  • 1 tsp dried dill (I use freeze-dried)
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tbsp capers, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes (I used 1 roma tomato)
  • 2 oz cream cheese or goat cheese
  • 4 oz smoked salmon, torn into 1 to 2-inch pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a round 9 or 10inch pie dish with cooking spay.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together flours and everything bagel seasoning. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together oil and water until thickened. Pour into flour mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  3. Form dough into a ball. Spread into pie dish, using your finger tips to spread it up onto the sides of the dish (you can also use a rolling pin to flatten it before putting in pan).
  4. Whisk eggs, milk, dill and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in capers and tomatoes. Carefully pour into unbaked pie crust. Dot with small pieces of cream cheese or goat cheese. Top evenly with salmon.
  5. Bake for 53-55 minutes, or until quiche has set. If you use cream or whole milk, it may be done sooner. Let quiche cool for 15 minutes before carefully slicing and enjoy!


*A store bought crust can be used instead.

**The higher the fat content in your milk or cream, the more rich the quiche will taste.

If you omit capers or cheese, I recommend increasing salt to 1/2 tsp.
