Lox and Eggs

Lox and eggs is a popular dish at deli-restaurants serving Jewish-style cuisine — and lox with scrambled eggs is ideal for preparing at home. It’s very easy, takes no time, and costs much less when you make your own. In case you’re wondering, lox is cured salmon. Smoked salmon, which is less salty, can be used as a substitute.
