Sometimes I just gotta have lox and cream cheese. But I forgot the bagel!
I buy the bits and pieces of lox at Wegmans usually (they’re not too salty), and since they sell those little plastic tubs right by the bagels, I don’t know why this is on an English muffin instead.
I probably bought just a couple of bagels, and then used the English muffin when I still had some lox left. (Another great way to use lox is in an omelet.)
You know, I just might like the softer muffin better than a bready chewy bagel – sorry, I know that’s heresy. But I’m Italian/Armenian, so what do I know?
