Egg in a Bagel Hole
Rating: Unrated
New!
Adding water to the skillet helps cook the eggs evenly without burning the bagel halves, resulting in a lightly toasted bagel wrapped around a perfectly runny yolk. Savory smoked salmon and creamy avocado complete this classic breakfast.

Beet-and-Lemon Shrub

New!
With a relatively low amount of alcohol, this refreshing and tart cocktail is perfect for brunch. Fresh beet juice is key here—purchase it from a juice bar, or press it at home; shelf-stable bottled juices won’t have the same flavor or color.
Best-Ever Potato Latkes
Rating: Unrated
4050
Niki Russ Federman of Russ & Daughters makes the tastiest, crispiest latkes with both scallions and onion. The shredded potatoes and onion are first drained and then mixed with reserved starchy paste, scallions, matzo meal, eggs, and more to form the batter. That batter is then fried in batches until golden latkes form. After they've drained on paper towels, they're ready to eat. Have applesauce, sour cream, smoked salmon, and salmon roe on hand for serving.
