The Everything English Muffin
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 (well, sometimes a breakfast charcuterie board, maybe).
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 (use any leftover to make stuffed salmon) on a toasted english muffin, and sprinkle it with everything bagel seasoning (also delicious to use for bloody marys with everything bagel bloody mary rim salt and an epic garnish for a bloody mary).
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!
