Lox, Bagel and Cream Cheese

Lox, Bagel and Cream Cheese

Lox, Bagel and Cream Cheese is one of my favorite comfort foods. I had this wonderful sandwich for the first time at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco many years ago. This is best enjoyed with a cup of piping hot black coffee.


  • 1 bagel, split and toasted or untoasted
  • About 1/3 cup cream cheese, divided
  • Several thinly-sliced pieces lox
  • 1 slice onion
  • 1 slice tomato (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  • A few capers, if desired
  • Sprigs of fresh dill, if desired
  • Hot black coffee (optional)


  1. Slather one-half of the bagel with cream cheese, more or less to your liking. Add the lox to the top of the cream cheese.
  2. Top with onion, then tomato.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Garnish with capers and fresh dill, if desired.
  5. Now slather the remaining bagel half with the remaining cream cheese. Set on top of the first half.
