Everything You Want in A Breakfast Bagel

That heading pretty much says it all doesn’t it? This sandwich is loaded with every guilty pleasure you could ever want in a breakfast sandwich. I feel like I am expertly qualified to make that statement because I consider myself somewhat of a breakfast sandwich connoisseur. This isn’t a recent thing, I have been a lifelong lover of all things bagels.

What You Need for A Lox Bagel Sandwich

You really only need a few core ingredients for a delicious lox bagel sandwich:

  1. An everything or poppy seed bagel
  2. Nova Lox
  3. Red Onion
  4. Capers 
  5. Fresh Dill 

That’s it. You did it. You made a lox bagel at home and it’s delicious! Right? Well, technically yes. That sounds pretty damn good to me. But, being the bagel sandwich connoisseur that I am, of course I had to elevate it.

Mo’ Cream Cheese Mo’ Bettah 

Let me tell you, cream cheese makes everything better. I don’t care what you’re making with your bagel, just add the cream cheese. Is it healthy? No of course not. But if you’re already planning on making a bagel sandwich I think we can agree that nutritional value is not at the top of your priority list.

California Avocados

Just like the cream cheese, you can never have too much avocado. If you’ve seen any of my other recipes, you know that I’m a huge avocado lover. Yes I love the taste because avocados are one of my favorite foods on this earth, but you can slice them up and they look absolutely awesome on any plate. When you add it into a sandwich it’s all about layering, and the direction you slice it. I did the same thing with the nova lox in this sandwich and as you can see, it looks great once you slice it open. I hope you enjoy this breakfast sandwich as much as i do!
