My favorite breakfast of all time would definitely be a Bagel with Cream Cheese & Lox. I grew up eating "bagels & lox" and to this day, think it's one of the best flavor combos out there. So when having people over for either a brunch party or dinner party, I like to take this NYC classic dish and make it a little more elegant and serve this as an appetizer. I substitute the bagel for a delicious, crisp phyllo shell, and garnish with fresh dill. I also like to amp up the cream cheese with a little shallot to make all those great flavors come alive!
Working with phyllo is a great thing to try out. Once you get the hang of it and how to handle it, the possibilities of what you can make with it are endless!
