While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Schmear it on thick - February 9 is National Bagels and Lox Day!
If you love bagels and getting a jump start on your fish serving of the day, nothing quite compares to the charmingly traditional couple that is bagels and lox. These two go together like peas and carrots, just on a whole other level.
In case the word "lox" has you suspecting that some imaginary creature from Dr. Seuss has turned to reality - it does sound an awful lot like Lorax, doesn't it? - let's serve up some clarity. Lox is actually a dry-cured, lightly smoked salmon filet that is traditionally served thinly sliced.
If you're out of bagels or just not into bagels and lox, try a smoked salmon sandwich with ginger relish. It will definitely solve that fishy morning craving that just won't go away.
