Everything Bagel Minus the Bagel

What sets everything bagels apart from regular bagels? You got it, the everything spice. I have heard that Trader Joe’s sells an Everything-But-The-Bagel Spice, but I live in West Virginia, and I am not sure that there is a Trader Joe’s in the entire state. Even if there was, I am pretty sure that I wouldn’t want to buy it at Trader Joe’s. As you know, I prefer the cheaper way out, but I prefer to call it “interested in controlling what I eat”.

Either way, this ‘spice’ is delicious. Enjoy it on bagels,, obviously, but also on salmon, broccoli, roasted vegetables, and anything else your heart desires.

Ingredients – 

Essentially, we’re going for a 4:2:2:1:1  ratio here, with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, minced onions, kosher salt, and pepper. So if you want to make a spice jar sized amount, you’ll need 4 tablespoons poppy seeds, 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, 2 tablespoons minced onions, and a scant tablespoon each of kosher salt and pepper. Mix and enjoy on whatever!


If you don’t particularly like super salty things or want to use table salt, reduce the amount of salt.
