The Everything English Muffin

The Everything English Muffin: tastes exactly like an everything bagel, with just 1/3 of the calories!!

This is my tribute to a little thing I’ve invented and fallen in love with recently called The Everything English Muffin. Sometimes the best meals are the ones that take 5 minutes to to make.

Now, in a perfect world where your favorite foods don’t have calories, I would eat an everything bagel with cream cheese and smoked salmon for breakfast every single morning. But alas, that’s not how the world works, and there’s that nasty rumor floating around that eating a bagel is the equivalent of eating 6 slices of bread or something. Well, it’s probably not just a rumor. It’s probably very accurate.

So, I invented a solution: spread low-fat cream cheese on a toasted english muffin, and sprinkle it with everything bagel seasoning. While a bagel with cream cheese can be about 450 calories, this will run you just 155 (for an english muffin plus a 1/2 ounce of low-fat cream cheese). And it fully satisfies my craving for everything bagels! It tastes exactly the same!
