Growing up, my family would often serve lox with bagels and cream cheese at family brunches. This was always a special occasion when family came into town. In my mind, I can still taste the flavors of a toasted bagel topped with cream cheese, lox, red onion, tomato, and capers. For our version of this dish, we replaced the bagel and cream cheese with eggs for an equally delicious and much healthier version.

    This recipe was delicious! I didn’t need to add any salt or anything to the meal as the salmon and capers add plenty of flavor that way. The tomatoes at the base are a great addition to the flavor and balance the saltiness. A great protein-packed breakfast.
