A two minute appetizer, this everything bagel goat cheese log is low carb and will be loved by everyone at your next event.
In order to keep my family from the fast food lines on busy nights, I have several last minute, incredibly easy dinner recipes that I keep on hand. I am talking stupid simple like 10 minute black bean tacos, 15 minute white beans and ham and 2 minute microwave egg scrambles.
Having those simple meals on speed dial helps me to stay on track with our budget goals and our health initiatives. And just like these easy suppers, I love having a few tried and true, easy peasy appetizers that I can throw together in no time.
A couple of minimal prep appetizers in your arsenal are great for last minute, drop in guests. I also like having a few really easy hors d’oeuvres that I can prepare as part of a larger party spread. If you are making 5 or 6 appetizers for a big party, it is nice to have one or two that you don’t have to do much work on to make the big day easier.

How To Serve
You can serve the creamy everything bagel goat cheese log in several different ways. I love how versatile it is and that you can accommodate many different diets and tastes with just one starter.
Low Carb/Keto/THM S
I follow an eating plan called Trim Healthy Mama which essentially rotates low carb/keto meals and healthy carb meals. If you follow THM this is an “S” recipe.
To cater to your Keto or Trim Healthy friends, serve this goat cheese appetizer with celery sticks.
It is also really good with homemade lavash chips.
If you want to offer an option to your friends that don’t follow a low carb lifestyle, Stacy’s Simply Naked Bagel Chips are amazing. Just make sure you get the plain variety. Anything else will be overpowering because of all the flavor that is in the Everything But the Bagel Seasoning.
