Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Spread bagel pieces on a baking sheet. Bake about 7 minutes or until toasted. Remove and set aside.

  • Meanwhile, in a 10-inch oven-going skillet melt butter over medium-high heat. Add leek. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 3 minutes. Add asparagus. Cook 5 minutes more.

  • In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, milk, 3 ounces feta, 1 tablespoon dill, and pepper. Add the lox and dried bagel pieces; stir to combine. Pour mixture over leek and asparagus in skillet, stirring gently to combine. Cover with foil. Transfer to oven.* Bake, covered, 10 minutes. Uncover. Bake 12 to 14 minutes more or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes. Serve with a dollop of creme fraiche, additional feta cheese, and a sprinkle of capers and dill weed.


To make your skillet oven and broiler proof, wrap the handle in foil. This will reduce heating and convection.

made this for a brunch and it was just wonderful. Everyone enjoyed it and there were no leftovers. Very easy to make I did not add capers to dish...I mixed them in with the creme and served on the side I sauteed the asparagus first and longer then added leeks since I was serving seniors Watch the dish while in oven....i tend to like my eggs a little moist but done and set. It is a dish worth trying!
