Healthy Smoked Salmon Breakfast Toast

Healthy Smoked Salmon Breakfast Toast

Lox and bagels are one of my all-time favorite breakfasts. I love getting a serving of good for you salmon combined with cream cheese mixed with onion.

The problem is that traditionally it is made with bagels and cream cheese, which provide more calories and fat than I want for breakfast during the week.

This version, made with toast and cottage cheese, is a good alternative and a great way to get more servings of Omega-3 and a boost of protein from the cottage cheese first thing in the morning.

This recipe is just a guide; sometimes, I add capers, tomatoes, cucumbers, or any other veggies that are in the fridge. This version is my go-to recipe because I usually have all these ingredients on hand.
