Everything Bagel Seasoning: 30+ Uses Beyond Bagels

If you have a jar of Everything Bagel seasoning blend that’s been sitting on the shelf, note that it can be used on just about everything.

The typical mix, like Pereg’s, is a medley of crystallized garlic, poppy seeds, granulated onion, coarse sea salt, and sesame seeds.

We first purchased a jar to sprinkle on a bagel and cream cheese. In the absence of an “Everything” bagel, it gave “Everything” flavor to plain, pumpernickel, and whole wheat bagels.

Here are some suggestions:


  • Add to scrambled eggs and omelets.
  • Use as a seasoning on hard-boiled eggs, instead of salt.
  • Mix into plain yogurt or cottage cheese.
  • Use as savory seasoning with oatmeal or other porridge.
  • Blend into, or sprinkle atop, plain cream cheese.
  • Blend into mashed avocado for avocado toast.
  • Garnish homemade bread, biscuits, rolls.

  • Add to coleslaw, egg salad, pasta salad, and potato salad.
  • Sprinkle on mac and cheese, pasta and pizza.
  • Add to a vinaigrette, blue cheese dressing, or other salad dressing.
  • Garnish grain bowls, soups (including ramen).

  • Coat a salmon filet or other fish.
  • Sauté or steam with broccoli, carrots, and other vegetables.
  • Season any type of potato.
  • Season deviled eggs.
  • Add to dry rubs.
  • Flavor breading.
  • Make compound butter.
  • Add to garlic bread.
  • Coat baked chicken: Mix everything bagel spice, olive oil, and lemon juice. Rub onto raw chicken.
  • Soup: Roast diced butternut squash with Everything Bagel spice, olive oil, and salt. Pureé with chicken or vegetable broth.
    Snacks & More

  • Baked appetizers: Garnish flaky appetizers like bourekas and spanakopita—even pigs in blankets—prior to baking.
  • Condiment: Blend into mayonnaise or mustard.
  • Dessert: Sprinkle over vanilla ice cream.
  • Snack: Make Everything Bagel popcorn. Melt butter, stir in Everything Bagel spice, and toss with popcorn.
  • Snack: Season homemade soft pretzels (recipe).
  • Snack: Add to snack mixes.
  • Snack: Blend into cheese balls.
  • Snack: Make Everything Bagel dip†.

    *Spice or seasoning? In this blend, the poppy seeds and sesame seeds are spices, but:
    – Garlic and onion are neither herb nor spice, but root vegetables. However, when they are dried and granulated, they are considered spices.
    – Salt/sea salt is neither herb nor spice, but a mineral.

    Spread or dip: Blend cream cheese, sour cream, and everything bagel spice. Serve as a dip or spread for crudités or pita chips.

    To toast nuts: Preheat oven to 200°F. Toss mixed nuts with olive oil and Everything Bagel spice; spread on an ungreased cookie sheet. Toast for 10 to 15 minutes.
