Warm up the milk, melt the butter or use room temperature. Put the products in the bread maker’s bowl, pour the yeast into the dispenser. Turn on the “Pizza” mode. The dough turns out to be tender and elastic.

Mix the melted butter with garlic passed through the press and finely chopped herbs. Roll out the dough into a flat cake on a teflon mat. Cover with a towel and put in the heat. For example, in a warm oven for 20 minutes.

Cut the mozzarella cheese into slices. Make incisions across the entire surface (longitudinal and transverse), retreating slightly from the edges, up to half the thickness of the cake. Do not cut through the dough to the end. Preheat the oven to 396F. Lubricate the surface with topping.

Bake bread in a well-heated oven at the above temperature for 18-20 minutes. The bread should turn brown, and the cheese should melt. Remove the bread from the oven and cool slightly (5-7 minutes). The crumb is layered, mozzarella stretches, garlic and herbs place delicious accents!

Philadelphia cheese should be taken out of the refrigerator about 20 minutes before the start of sandwich preparation, so that it can be applied to soft bread later without any problems. Prepare the filling. Chop the lightly salted salmon, chop (chop) the red onion very finely, put everything in a bowl and mix with lemon juice and mayonnaise. Pepper to taste. add another tablespoon of Philadelphia cheese to the filling and some dill greens. Stir and set aside.

Cut off the edges of the bread slices (it is best if the bread for sandwiches is homemade). Wash the long cucumbers and use a vegetable cutter to cut them into thin ribbons (not reaching the middle with the seeds). Put it on a napkin and get wet.

We begin to “assemble” the sandwich. Spread a thin even layer of Philadelphia cheese on one side of each slice of bread. Place cucumber strips diagonally on top. Gently press down and, if necessary, blot again with a paper napkin (paper towel).

Alternating through one, apply an even layer of salmon filling to the other side of the bread. Cover with a second slice so that the side with cucumbers is outside. And now just carefully trim the cucumber strips, aligning them along the edge of the sandwiches. Wrap in plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator. Before serving, cut each sandwich diagonally and serve! Very tasty and elegant at the same time! By the way, you can dream up with fillings!
