Ideas to add to bagel/lox brunch?
I'm having in-laws over next weekend for a simple brunch. Plan on serving bagels, lox, cream cheese. Will shop at Zabars. Need a new ideas for additional items. Make a simple green salad or fruit salad? Biscotti for dessert? Thanks in advance.
Tradition at our house growng up:
Big bowl of scrambled eggs
White fish w/ sour cream
I'm presuming you're going w/ real bagels, not dessert ones, so some red onions and capers to top
As with above, a green salad. If you want some sweetness, mandarin orange slices in the green salad with a rasberry vinegrette.
Onion board (Flat bread with finely chopped and sauteed onions) or bialys
Dessert? Cheesecake, of course -- a dense NY style, not light and poofy.
Now, how traditional is that?
A blintz casserole is always nice. A coffee cake or danish is good.
I'd say a fruit salad goes better with lox than a green salad.
Or you could bake some kind of fancy egg thing - a strata, for example.
bagels, lox, cream cheese, slices of red onion, capers, what about herring in sour cream, bialys are a great idea, what about blinzes?
Jfood would suggest choosing from the following:
- need tomato and onion for the novey
- whitefish, sable or sturgeon (or all three). Jfood loves sable
- herring in cream sauce with onions
- chopped herring salad
- cheese blintzes w sour cream
- scrambled eggs or egg salad
- S&S Cheese cake if you can find it in the city
- Good coffee
Getting hungry just thinking about it
