Low Carb Bagels


Recently, Mike posted a recipe for lox and cream cheese without the bagel, which triggered a number of bagel discussions.  What is brunch, you asked us, without the bagel?  No more complaining for those of you who want to keep eating bagels.  Brunch need not be a choice between a hard boiled egg or a doughy ring of 60 grams of carb.  Maria Emmerich‘s low carb bagels are easy to make and just might be the answer to all of your brunch-n-bolus issues.  – Jessica Apple
