You know that feeling when you LOVE bread but you also want to be skinny(er)? That feeling haunted me when I started watching my carbs and giving the keto lifestyle a try… How could I live without bread? Guess what? I realized that you can have your keto and eat “bread” too! I was so happy to discover that there was such a thing as keto bagels that have a consistency and flavor that is pretty close to that of “real” bread. I toyed around until I found a recipe that I loved and here it is. Top them with everything bagel seasoning (or just leave them plain and be sad) and you have an amazing bread option for eggs, lunch meat, or just slathered in butter.
You could even leave these plain and top them with your favorite pizza toppings for pizza bagels! Those would make a great lunch and you could play around to make different kinds: traditional (pepperoni and cheese), buffalo chicken, pesto and chicken, shredded bbq pork… the possibilities are endless and you can be as creative as you want if you keep it keto-friendly.
I love to eat my bagels just plain with butter in the morning but they also make an amazing ham and cheese sandwich too! If you like these, the recipe is similar to the Fathead Cheese “Breadsticks” I made. Give those a try to for a “bread” fix!
