Bagel and Lox Strata

I can't believe this recipe has not made it onto the blog yet! This is my stand-by. My go to. If you know me you've eaten this at least twice! I got this recipe at my wedding recipe shower from our good family friend who also hosted.

This is so tasty and a good way to mix it up from you normal egg, cheese and sausage breakfast dish.


Bagel & Lox Strata


 cup butter, melted
4 bagels cut into bite-size pieces
8 ounce package thinly sliced smoked salmon
ounces Swiss cheese or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (2 cups)
 cup snipped fresh chives or green onion
eggs, beaten
cups milk
cup cottage cheese
 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place melted butter in a 13x9-inch baking dish, spreading to cover the bottom. Spread bagel pieces evenly in prepared dish.
  3. Layer lox, cheese, and chives evenly over bagel pieces.
  4. In a large bowl combine eggs, milk, cottage cheese, and pepper. Pour over layers in dish.
  5. Press down gently with the back of a wooden spoon to moisten all of the ingredients. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours.
  6. Bake, uncovered, about 50 minutes to an hour or untiltop is puffed and golden. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

*** If you want to cut this in half just use a square casserole.

P.S. Anatomy scan is tomorrow!  Time to find out if baby Charles will be wearing pink or blue!
