A bagel breakfast is delicious, easy to prepare, and enjoyed by many people. Many like to share this treat for a Sunday morning, but you can have one any day of the week.


  1. Get the best bagels available in your town. Heat them whole in the oven at about 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 175 degrees Celsius, for about twelve minutes, a bit longer if you like them a little on the crispy side. Later you will slice these as you take them out of the oven, and then will place them in a bowl on the table.
  2. Make a nice plate of sliced tomatoes.
  3. Slice some onions, white or red, and some peppers if you like. Lay these on a plate on your table.
  4. Put some standard or flavored cream cheese on the table. Provide a knife or a spatula so that you and your guests will be able to spread this all the way to the edge of the bagel.
  5. Put about a pound of lox on a plate. Provide a fork, so that guests will be able to separate the top layer.
  6. Make sure everyone gets a nice slice of lox to put on top of each bagel, half which they have spread with cream cheese. Guests can then apply their choice of onions, peppers, capers and tomato slices.
  7. Suggest to your guests that they eat their bagels as open-faced sandwiches or regular sandwiches, whichever they prefer.
  8. Add other items to your table, such as sliced bananas, some coffee, orange juice, small bowls of berries or other fruits. You can also make a little tuna fish salad, as some guests will prefer this over the traditional lox. Enjoy!
  9. Finished.


  • Half a dozen of the best bagels you can find (serve 6)
  • 1 pound of Nova or Nova Scotia lox
  • 3-4 tomatoes
  • 2-3 Bermuda Onions, sliced
  • Red or yellow pepper, sliced (optional)
  • Capers (optional)
  • Cream cheese (2 containers)


  • Sliced cucumber adds a crisp and refreshing taste and makes a great substitute for tomatoes.
  • you may need some money for this considering lox and capers are expensive.
  • If you are serving on a Sunday morning, set the table on Saturday night so you won't have to bother with that in the morning.
  • Bagels are great fresh, but do pretty well in the freezer as well. Just take them out of the freezer and put them right in the oven and plan to cook them a bit longer. See How to Make a Frozen Bagel Taste Freshly Baked.
  • Plain cream cheese is fine, but you might like to try a flavored variety such as garlic and chive, or sun-dried tomato.
