What’s up for Sunday Brunch?

Our favorite is a bagels and lox platter. There’s no cooking involved!

This Lox and Bagel Board was created by Sherry Brubaker of the farm-to-table food blog: Backyard Bohemian.

Sherry is a wife and mom of three, who went into the culinary industry after serving and earning a Combat Action Badge in Afghanistan in 2010.

On returning home, she found that the meditative and mindfulness aspects of cooking where beneficial to her health. From there, Backyard Bohemian was created.

When she sent us this lox and bagels platter, we almost tried to eat it from the screen.

Here’s what you need to create your own, no-cooking-involved, weekend brunch.

Main Components

  • Bagels: 3 different flavors
  • Lox: 3 ounces of smoked salmon per person (the difference between lox and smoked salmon), substitute gravlax
  • Cream cheese: pick 2-3 flavors, plain plus chive or olive cream cheese, for example
  • Onions: sliced sweet or red onions
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Seafood spread: our favorites are chopped herring and smoked whitefish salad, but shrimp salad also works

  • Avocado, sliced
  • Cucumbers: English, Persian or other narrow type, sliced
  • Eggs, fried
    For The Garnishes

  • Beet sauerkraut
  • Black olives
  • Capers
  • Dill, snipped
  • Lemon wedges
  • Jalapeños, sliced
  • Microgreens
  • Pickles: dills, sweet gherkins, plus pickled vegetables (how to make them)
    Serve these on:

  • A large platter for the table
  • A buffet
  • A lazy Susan
    Then, dig in. This is our favorite way to brunch.
