Our New Favorite Seasoning Mix

This everything bagel seasoning recipe with a kick is my new favorite seasoning mix. I’m putting it on everything right now; eggs, sliced avocado, popcorn, and more are all delicious with this on it! I’m especially hooked on sprinkling it on top of our Sourdough Avocado Toasts! (link) Seriously, I feel like I could eat this with a spoon and be content.

I have always been a fan of everything bagels and the seasoning that goes along with it. They are my go-to bagel choice whenever we get bagels, as I’m much more of a savory food guy than a sweet food guy. I remember making bagel sandwiches when I was younger with cream cheese and ham or turkey along with some lettuce and tomato, and they were one of my favorite lunch options. I always wanted this with an everything bagel, though, as it was so much better that way than it was with a plain bagel.

Much more recently I stumbled across everything bagel seasoning (not sure why I was unaware or hadn’t gone looking for this earlier) and was super excited to try it. There are some decent ones out there (Trader Joe’s has a good everything bagel seasoning) but a lot of the ones we’ve tried or have seen have a lot of salt added to them, which can be overpowering and can mask some of the other flavors.

So we set out to make our own seasoning mix where we could control the salt level and could adjust the flavors to our taste. Through some testing (delicious testing) we found a balance that we liked where the flavors could shine and that wasn’t too salty. During this process, however, Joelle commented, “what if we make a spicy everything bagel seasoning?” to which I replied with an emphatic YES!. If you know anything about me you know that I’m all about the spicy foods and recipes, so this was right up my alley. I had, after all, been putting hot sauce on my eggs and avocado toasts already in addition to this everything bagel seasoning.

We added in some red pepper flakes to this recipe and it really took it up a notch. I love this homemade seasoning mix even more now that it has a touch of warmth. And for anyone who isn’t a huge chile head like I’m, I can tell you that this isn’t a really spicy recipe. The red pepper flakes just add a bit of spice and a bit of warmth to this everything bagel seasoning, which really complements the other flavors wonderfully.

Let’s make some Spicy Everything Bagel Seasoning!

This homemade seasoning recipe goes together in under 5 minutes and then you can begin to enjoy it on any number of recipes. Simply add your ingredients into a bowl or jar, mix them together, and enjoy. I recommend mixing your everything bagel seasoning together in a mason jar, which can also be used for storing any leftover seasoning. My ratios here will make about 1 cup of seasoning, which should fit nicely in a half-pint (8oz) mason jar. This recipe can easily be scaled up or down to meet your needs and preferences, so you can just make a little bit if you just need it for a recipe or can make up a giant batch and eat it on everything for weeks!

To make 1 cup of the seasoning, combine:

3 Tbsp dried chopped garlic

3 Tbsp dried chopped onion

3 Tbsp poppy seed

3 Tbsp white sesame seeds

3 Tbsp red pepper flakes

1 ½ tsp salt

The ratios here are 1 part salt to 2 parts everything else, so as you make this recipe a few times it becomes very simple to scale it up or down.

What to put your Everything Bagel Seasoning with a Kick on

Bagels

Feel free to turn plain bagels into everything bagels with this seasoning. Just smear on your cream cheese and then sprinkle the seasoning on top. If you like to make your own bagels you can easily add this seasoning mix on top to have true everything bagels.

Eggs

take your sunny side up eggs to another level by finishing them off with some of this delicious everything bagel seasoning. Sprinkle over the top of your cooked eggs as lightly or as liberally as you want.

Avocado

Joelle and I both love slicing up half an avocado and sprinkling this seasoning on top as part of a healthy breakfast or for an easy lunch side.

Sourdough Avocado Toasts

If you’re an avocado toast fan, you have to try this recipe using sourdough bread. If you’ve never tried avocado toast, then you need to try this one now! A thick slice of homemade sourdough topped with mashed avocado, a sunny side up egg, and some everything bagel seasoning with a kick is the healthy breakfast meal you need in your life today.

Egg Salad

mix some spicy everything bagel seasoning into your egg salad to turn it into something truly special. Serve it in a sandwich or enjoy it with some crackers and celery sticks for an easy healthy lunch.
