Are you a bagel fan? I am! In fact, did you know I was once interviewed for a news story about the shocking way St. Louis people slice their bagels? It’s true!

However, slicing a bagel is a story for another day. I’m here to talk about what goes on the bagel… the seasoning blend to end all seasoning blends.

Everything Bagel Seasoning Ingredients

  • Coarse sea salt – Larger chunks of salt are better here.
  • Black sesame seeds – Black sesame seeds still have their hulls so they have a slightly bitter flavor.
  • White sesame seeds – A touch sweeter than black sesame seeds.
  • Poppy seeds – For an earthy, sweet nutty crunch.
  • Dried onion flakes – A savory and sweet element that is sharp and delicious.
  • Dried garlic flakes – Read all about Garlic Conversions here.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Use all white sesame seeds instead of a mixture if you prefer, or if that’s what you have on hand.
  • You can use any coarse salt instead of the sea salt – kosher salt would also work.
  • If using a traditional salt instead of coarse salt, I would cut the amount in half.
  • Spice it up! Try adding a little red pepper flake.
  • Pepitas (pumpkin seeds) are another delicious addition to your everything bagel blend.
  • Toast your seasoning blend for an extra dash of warm and nutty vibes! Just throw the blend in a skillet on low-medium for up to five minutes.

  1. In a small bowl, combine all required seasonings.

This seasoning can be stored like any of your other spices. Use a clean sealable jar to store your mix and store in a cool dry and dark location. A cabinet or pantry works great!
