7 Incredible Ways to Eat Bagels and Lox

It’s National Bagels & Lox Day, and to celebrate this chewy, briny match made in heaven, we’d like to spotlight the many ways in which these two complementary foods can be enjoyed. You can make a bagel sandwich with cream cheese and lox, of course, but, as with so many of our favorite Jewish foods, the possibilities are endless!

If this foodie holiday caught you by surprise, that’s OK — most of these recipes just call for store-bought bagels and lox. And if you’re a vegan, try out our roundup of lox-less bagels and lox! Here are some inventive recipes to get you started:

Smoked Salmon and Goat Cheese Quiche
Smoked Salmon Bagel Bar from What’s Gaby Cooking
