If you miss going out to your favorite Brunch spot, bring it to your home. One of my favorite breakfast meals to order when out for breakfast is Lox and Bagel Sandwich. If you never had one, this is what it is Lox (Yiddish: לאַקס‎) is a fillet of brined salmon. Lox is one type of salmon product served on a bagel with cream cheese and is usually garnished with tomato, sliced onion, cucumbers, and capers. So I’m going to show you how to make you one of my favorite Breakfast sandwiches. It is super easy and straightforward to male and guess what it will take you less than 10 minutes to make.
