I thought I’d share one of our favorite weekend breakfast recipes with you. This is so easy and wonderful with a cup of French roast coffee. You could even make this before your hubby or wife (or significant other) wakes up and surprise them with the Saturday morning crossword puzzle and breakfast in bed.
good quality bagels (Bruegger’s, Panera, Big Apple or Lender’s) halved
real cream cheese
ready to eat, boned, smoked salmon nova lox
thinly sliced purple or red onion
freshly ground black pepper
