What is the Everything Bagel seasoning?

  • Black and white sesame seed. If you want to keep it simple, you can use only one color.
  • Sea Salt flakes- Large, flaky salts like Maldon are the best for a more evenly distributed saltiness and a nice crunch. You can also use regular sea salt, but it will work better if you use less.
  • Dried Minced Garlic Also called dehydrated or dried garlic; this is the best way to get a garlicky flavor and a toasty taste!
  • Dried Minced Onion — just as dried garlic is larger than garlic powder; the dried minced onions will have a savory flavor and a more substantial size.
  • Poppy Seeds – for a crunchier taste, we used more than the Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel seasoning.
