If you’re looking for an easy and savory Keto friendly fat bomb these everything smoked salmon fat bombs are what you need! You can eat them as is or you can serve them as a perfectly portioned spread for your Keto bagels. They’re great for on the go snacks with pork rinds and veggies and only have five simple ingredients.
Eggs and I are on break, it’s not you, it’s me!
A question I get about the Keto diet is what can I eat for breakfast other than eggs, and though I love eggs and am rarely not in the mood, I get it. Sometimes you need to switch things up to keep the relationship new and exciting. We all need a little variety in our lives and breakfast foods are no exception.
One of my favorite breakfasts that don’t involve meat and eggs has always been bagel and lox. The salty briny flavor of salmon combined with the rich cream cheese are just the perfect pair. Add in some spicy horseradish, chives and every bagel seasoning and what else could you ask for. Maybe a slice of tomato but I’ll leave that up to you.
Ain’t nobody got time for that!
As a chef with years of experience I just assume everyone can cook tasty meals at the drop of a hat. I’ve come to realize that in this busy world some people have neither the time or the energy to prepare a healthy meal. This is a recipe that requires no cooking experience and just a few minutes of your time. You can keep these tasty fat bombs in the fridge and grab as needed.
The store bought seasoning is too salty!!!
One thing I’ll say is that the trader joe everything bagel seasoning can be a bit on the salty side especially if you’re sensitive to sodium or you’re using the bottom of the container where most of the salt settles. My solution is to make your own, it’s incredibly simple and that way you can control the amount of salt in your seasoning blend. I posted a quick recipe below if you want to make your own everything seasoning. You’ll notice that I mention substituting old bay for the salt as an option. Im from Maryland and its pretty much a requirement to use old bay as often as possible lol.
Homemade Everything Seasoning:
2 tbsp black & white sesame seeds
2 tbsp poppy seeds
2 tbsp dried minced garlic
2 tbsp dried minced onion
1 tsp coarse sea salt
(or use old bay instead of salt if you’re from the east coast)
Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container
