Cook: Bagel with Lox, Cream Cheese, Capes and Tomatoes

This is one of our favorite things to eat for breakfast on the weekends. You can go out and order it at a restaurant, but we prefer to make it ourselves so we can adjust the fixin's to our liking. The best part of this gourmet treat, is that it is incredibly easy to prepare!

  • bagels, split in half and toasted
  • plain cream cheese
  • lox (this time we tried scottish smoked salmon from costco! it was delicious!)
  • red onion (sliced thinly)
  • capers
  • lemon, cut into wedges
  • cherry tomatoes (cut in half) - optional
  • freshly ground pepper
  1. Spread cream cheese over one half of the bagel
  2. Spread a thin layer of lox over the cream cheese layer
  3. Squeeze some lemon juice over the lox
  4. Add capers, red onions, and tomatoes (whatever combination you are happy with)
  5. Sprinkle some freshly ground pepper over everything
Enjoy! Serve with freshly brewed coffee, and fruit on the side (this morning, we had papaya and strawberry -yum!)
