I looooove everything bagels and am so glad Everything Bagel Seasoning is having a moment. I make it myself so I can have some for a few servings, or make a bunch to have around. It is so easy and customizable – go heavier on the flavors you like best! I use it on eggs, rice, toast, and anything breakfast! Just the other day I made a breakfast sandwich on an croissant with eggs, cheese, tomato, and sprinkled some everything bagel seasoning. SO good.
Everything Bagel Seasoning
Ingredients (for ~2 tablespoons of seasoning):
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon dried fennel seeds (optional)
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Add everything into a small dry skillet over medium-low heat.
Cook for 2-4 minutes, stirring regularly to ensure nothing burns.
Let cool and enjoy!
I like a mostly even ratio for the poppy/sesame/onion/fennel and half ratio for the salt/pepper/garlic powder. The toasty flavor is 100% necessary. The crunch it adds is also unparalleled.
Everything Bagel Seasoning is so breakfast, but is an ideal combo for anything. I’d totally top popcorn with it too! The dried minced onion & sesame seeds are what I keep an eye on in the pan to ensure nothing burns.
