Healthy Smoked Salmon Breakfast Toast

  • Healthy Smoked Salmon Breakfast Toast
    Cold smoked salmon is milder than traditional lox


Lox and bagels is 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.


1-2 pieces toasted rye, pumpernickel, or ancient grain bread
2-3 pieces smoked salmon or lox
1/4-1/2 cup organic cottage cheese
Sliced shallots or red onion
Sliced veggies
Salt and pepper, to taste
Dill, dried or fresh, to taste
Lemon wedge

Geese flying in formation

The V formation itself is a thing of beauty.  I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility.  When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
