Healthy High Protein Bagel Sandwich with Whipped Feta

This everything bagel sandwich is packed full of creamy whipped feta, caramelized onions and oven roasted turkey breast that will leave your taste buds begging for more while still allowing your waistline to thank you: one sandwich packs over 50 grams of protein and is less than 450 calories!


Bagel Sandwiches. What ISN'T there to like about a bagel sandwich??? You get all the benefits of a bagel: soft and chewy carby deliciousness, and then get to pick whatever ingredients you are feeling that day to shove in between two halves of said delicious bagel to make a rocking sandwich that can either be breakfast...lunch...brunch...I mean really bagels are good any time of the day.


Unfortunately...bagels and bagel sandwiches are not always the most healthy option.  While I don't think carbs are bad for you bagels are obviously high in carbs and since I stick to a high protein diet I always have to be careful to make sure that I can get my protein in without going over my carb limit.


That's why I was SO EXCITED to find out that Western Bagel makes"Perfect 10" Bagels that are much lower in carbs and fats than a traditional bagel AND packs 19g of protein per bagel.  One bagel is 160 calories with 21 grams of carbs, 3 grams of fat and 19g of protein.  And really: just look at that bagel.  It IS perfect! The texture is soft and taste is spot on, I love the everything flavor and it also comes in a plain "healthy grain" flavor.




I knew I just HAD to whip up a delicious protein packed bagel sandwich using one of these bad boys. The best part of the sandwich (besides the bagel) is the healthy whipped feta spread I mixed up! One LARGE serving (you could easily half the recipe) was 115 calories with 15 grams of carbs, 0 grams of fat, and 14 grams of protein.  I basically mixed fat free feta (I used tomato basil flavored feta) with plain greek yogurt and a squeeze of lemon juice until I had a big bowl of creamy cheesy goodness ready to slather on my bagel.


Paired with some caramelized onions and oven roasted turkey breast this sandwich made the perfect high protein lunch that was packed full of flavor. I'm already dreaming of all of the other flavor combos that would taste amazing in these bagels!
