Because sometimes you have leftover creamed greens from an aforementioned caveman feast that need to be mixed with some roasted red peppers, then mounded up with a poached egg wrapped in speck on top. Sometimes that happens, you guys.
But, if we're being honest, there are few things that can beat what I consider to be the most superior breakfast food that exists (aside from hashbrowns, which, I don't really want to talk about until someone in NY can make them correctly). The equation is simple: thick slices of challah + a generous layer of cream cheese + thinly sliced cucumbers + sea salt = sigh, perfection.
Like so many things that I love to eat, this is an amazing platform upon which to build. Obviously, this is a riff on the classic bagel, shmear, lox combo. So all of those things go well. Sometimes I'll toss on a few capers or thinly slice some red onion. It's pretty hard to mess this up.
I recommend having a challah and cream cheese in the house this weekend, just in case you overindulge and wake up wanting something delicious with minimal effort. Now, who wants to go overindulge with me?
