This Everything Bagel seasoning recipe is great on everything from bagels to chicken, fish, and of course, cream cheese. Plus just about anything else!
Most folks know this bagel spice blend, thanks to Trader Joe’s. And I know it’s called bagel seasoning, but it truly can be used for so much more! Check out the list below.
What Is Everything Bagel Seasoning?
This simple seasoning is a blend of dried garlic, onion, sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, and poppy seeds.
Can You Double Or Triple The Recipe?
You can! You can multiply this as many times as you like, however, I would cut back slightly on the salt with each duplication. You can also cut this recipe in half if you just want to try it or don’t think you can use it up fast enough.

How Do You Get Everything Bagel Seasoning To Stick To A Bagel?
If you love to make your own bagels at home but can’t seem to get the seasoning to stick to the tops of your bagels, here’s the trick to make it stick.
Using a basting brush, brush the top of each bagel with a very light layer of water. Then sprinkle on the seasoning and bake. And just like that, your seasoning will stick!
About The Ingredients
⅓ cup sesame seeds – I used untoasted, white sesame seeds.
1 tbsp. black sesame seeds
1 tbsp. poppy seeds
2 tsp. garlic granules – You can also use garlic powder, dehydrated, minced garlic, or garlic flakes.
1 tsp. onion granules – You can also use onion powder, onion flakes, or dried onion.
1 tsp. salt – I used pink Himalayan salt, but you can use whatever you normally cook with. Note that this amount of salt makes the seasoning itself pretty salty. But once added to a dish, the salt blends in nicely. You can cut back on it if you wish, however, or omit it completely. For sea salt, use no more than level 1 tsp. for kosher salt, use a heaping teaspoon.
