With a few smart substitutes, this treasured New York City breakfast staple can be added to your regular breakfast rotation. This version incorporates traditional ingredients on a thin everything bagel instead of the full-size version to keep calories in check. Technically speaking, lox is cured in a sugar-salt rub or a brine, but smoked salmon is often used in this dish and it’s widely available. The cream cheese is blended with a mix of shallots, chives, dill, and black pepper to punch of the flavor. Sprinkle on some capers for a nod to tradition and a wonderful hit of brininess.


Neufchâtel cheese

6 Tbsp, softened

Uncooked shallot(s)

2 small, minced


4 tsp, fresh, chopped (plus extra for garnish)


1 Tbsp, finely chopped (plus extra for garnish)

Black pepper

¼ tsp


4 large egg(s)

Everything bagel thin(s)

4 bagel(s), toasted

Canola oil

2 tsp

Smoked salmon

4 oz, thinly sliced


  1. Mix together 2 tbsp cream cheese, shallots, dill, chives, and pepper in medium bowl until blended. Stir in eggs until mixed well.
  2. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture and cook, without stirring, until eggs begin to set, about 1 minute. Cook, pushing egg mixture toward center of skillet to form large soft curds, until just set, about 3 minutes longer. Remove skillet from heat.
  3. Spread remaining 1/4 cup cream cheese on bottoms of bagel thins; top evenly with eggs and smoked salmon. Garnish with dill and chives. Cover with tops of bagel thins.
  4. Serving size: 1 sandwich
