This Everything Bagel Seasoning blend is quick and easy to make with 5 simple spices, and it is super-delicious when incorporated to all sorts of recipes beyond the bagel!  Be sure to toast the seasoning mix briefly if you are using it in an un-cooked recipe or as a finishing seasoning.


  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (I used half white, half black sesame seeds)
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon flaked sea salt


  1. Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl until evenly combined.
  2. Use immediately*, or store in a sealed jar for up to 3 months.


*If you are using this seasoning blend in a recipe in which it will not be cooked, I highly recommend giving the seasoning blend a quick toast before sprinkling or stirring it into your recipe.

To do so, heat a large sauté pan over medium heat.  Add your desired amount of the seasoning blend.  Then cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the seasonings are fragrant, and the garlic and onion and sesame seeds are lightly golden and toasted.  (Be careful that they do not burn.)  Transfer the seasonings to a separate plate to cool.  Then use immediately.
