What can you do with leftover Challah when you are not in the mood for french toast?
How can you eat lox if you don’t have any cream cheese?
Never fear, I have the solution. A Challah, egg and lox open-faced sandwich!
You’ll be tempted to pick it up and bite it, but it is really messy (trust me on this) so use a knife and fork.
The first time I made this I was really surprised at how good it was. But really, what could be bad when you combine three such tasty foods?!
Eggs and Lox on Challah
For each serving:
1 slice of challah
2 slices nova lox
1 tsp – 1 Tbsp olive oil
1 egg (from Farmer Kim)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Toast the challah, if desired.
Place the lox on the toast.
Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and heat til shimmering. Crack the egg and cook until the white sets and the yolk is heated through (I like it to still be runny). Season with salt and pepper and place on top of the lox.
Serve and enjoy!
