Today my demonic hormones indicated that I wanted this:
NA, GIRL. If I eat a bagel AT THIS POINT, I will go into a self-induced glucose attack from hell. I haven’t consumed carbs in over a month now. No way I can eat this crud.
So I found a recipe for a keto bomb based on:
- cream cheese
- bagel seasoning
SO I USED:
- 2.5 TABLESPOONS cream cheese
- 2 oz sliced salmon (lox, yumm) (that’s half a pack)
- some chopped chives
And I was like, how am I going to bind this together without adding cream cheese? WELL, HERE ARE THE SAVERS OF THE DAY!
Turns out, 2 tbsp Parmesan binds together the cream cheese and lox like a DREAM. It serves as a wall, sort to speak.
AND….Trader Joe’s owes us an apology: Mrs. Dash Chicken TASTES EXACTLY THE SAME as the “everything bagel” seasoning. Glad I saved me a trip to Atlanta to get it.
So: I mixed it all together in the mixer, low level. Then filled a basic container with Mrs Dash. Made 9 balls, rolled each in the mix, and KABOOM!
Basically, you eating the good stuff in the bagel, PLUS the seasoning: without the bagel. I call this a WIN.
I am cooling them overnight because I plan to eat them all tomorrow.
