Everything bagel seasoning is a spice mix that needs to be in your kitchen at all times. We love this recipe for seasoning chicken, veggies, and everything in between.

Everything Bagel Seasoning is that delicious, chunky, savory seasoning you find on Everything Bagels, but without the bagel! It was first popularized by Trader Joe’s when they came out with an Everything But the Bagel Seasoning to sell in-store.

Today, everything bagel seasoning is used on pretty much everything! Our recipe uses all of the classic whole spice ingredients, but uses far less salt so that you can control your sodium!

You only need 6 whole ingredients for this everything bagel seasoning recipe:

  1. white sesame seeds
  2. black sesame seeds
  3. dried minced garlic
  4. dried minced onion
  5. poppy seeds
  6. coarse salt

Our seasoning has much less salt than the kind you buy at Trader Joe’s. So, just keep that in mind when you’re subbing our seasoning. Feel free to add salt as needed!
