This Everything Bagel Seasoning is a combination of savory and salty flavors that can be adjusted to suit your needs. As it mimics the toppings found on those classic everything bagels, you get crunch, salt, pungent flavors, and nutty bites.
But don’t limit your uses to just brushing on plain bagels – simply add it to cream cheese, sprinkle on your next avocado toast, or amp up the flavor of your favorite dip.
What goes into an everything bagel?
Depending on your bagel shop of choice, everything bagels can contain toppings that include poppy seeds, sesame seeds, caraway seeds, onion flakes, garlic flakes, pretzel salt, and coarse black pepper.
What can you put on a bagel?
The choice is really up to you, but if you are craving a sweet topping, go with strawberries and cream cheese. For a savory combination, turkey and cheese are always a satisfying option. And there is, of course, the famous pizza bagel, topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.
How many calories are in an everything bagel?
A medium-sized bagel, about 3.5-4 inches in diameter has around 300 calories. Bagel shop bagels typically are larger, amping up the calorie count to 400-500 calories.
What is in Everything But the Bagel seasoning?
This seasoning blend, commonly found at Trader Joe’s, includes poppy seeds, toasted sesame seeds, dried garlic, dried onion, and salt. But the beauty of making your own spice blend is you can control the proportions of spices and salt to suit your needs, definitely a win!
