Lower Carb Stuffed Salmon & Avocado Bagel



Bagels can often divide people. Get them a day late and they turn hard and less than appealing but get one fresh and you may happily devour it. They are dense though and that's often the complaint of those that don't like them. So one way to get around this is to pull out the dense stuffing (use it for breadcrumbs) and then fill it with salad or your favourite bagel filling. For me, I love smoked salmon and avocado. Others may like pastrami and cheese or even a sweet bagel filling. This is barely a recipe yet I wanted to share the idea with you in case you were looking for something a little less heavy that was still full of flavour for the weekend.

So tell me Dear Reader, are you as addicted to trashy magazines as I am? And do you believe the stories in them?
