I learned to make lox and bagels from my friend Susan. There are rules that must be followed but I had to break one this morning. Traditionally the recipe calls for sliced red onion. I blew right past the produce department in the grocery store this morning and got home without red onions. I substituted sweet yellow onion. Mea culpa, bigtime.
- New York style bagels
- Cream Cheese
- Red Onion, sliced paper thin
- Lox, I like the peppered kind
- Toast the bagel. Let it cool just a bit, then spread on the cream cheese. Layer on as much of the lox as you like, followed by the onion and capers. There is debate about whether tomato belongs on a lox bagel, but you can add one slice of fresh tomato if you like. Enjoy outside on the patio with a hot cup of coffee.
