HOW TO: Use EVERYTHING but the Bagel Seasoning

Everything Seasoning, Everything but the Bagel seasoning, Everything Bagel seasoning… many names, but it’s all the same. The perfect blend of salt, white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, dried minced garlic, dried minced onion and poppy seeds.

You can buy it in every grocery store now, or make it at home. And, it can go on just about EVERYTHING! I buy mine multiple bottles at a time and keep it in the fridge (the sesame seeds can go rancid if on the cabinet shelves too long). Read recommendations below!

Everything Bagel Seasoning Cucumbers
Slice 1-2 Persian cucumbers lengthwise, scoop out the seeds (doesn’t have to be perfect), spread some cream cheese (plain or flavored) and sprinkle a generous amount of the Everything seasoning on top. Slice or eat whole.

Everything Bagel Crackers
Spray some butter crackers or saltines with non-stick spray and sprinkle Everything seasoning on top. Bake in a 300 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until crackers are slightly brown. They may not crisp up until they cool slightly on the pan. Place in a snack bowl and enjoy or serve to guests!

Everything Seasoned Salmon
Salmon filets drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled generously with Everything seasoning and a small sprinkling of brown sugar. Grilled for 8-10 minutes (depending on size of filets and preferred level of doneness). This an also be broiledif grilleing isn’t an option.

Everything Chicken Tenders
You can use chicken tenders or chicken breast cut into long strips, whichever you have on hand! Take a sheet pan and line with parchment or a cooling rack inside the pan. Spray each chicken strip/tender with olive oil or canola oil spray and press Everything seasoning onto the pieces until it adheres. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, until check in opaque throughout and temperature registers 165 degrees on an instant read thermometer

Everything Avocado Toast
Toast two pieces of whole wheat Italian bread (or whole grain bread of your choice). Slice and fan out half an avocado on each piece of bread. Drizzle with olive oil and then sprinkle with Everything seasoning and crushed red pepper flakes (pepper flakes optional). Cut each piece of toast in half and serve.

Everything but the Bagel Popcorn
Heat 1/4 c. coconut oil in a large pot. Add 1/2-3/4 c. popcorn kernels once the oil has melted in the pot. Cover and let popcorn pop over medium-low heat until you only hear a couple kernels popping over a few minutes. Dump hot popcorn into a large bowl and toss with Everything but the Bagel seasoning. Enjoy warm!

From breakfast to lunch to dinner to snacks, Everything but the Bagel seasoning is a winner in my book. How do you use this seasoning each week? Are you a fan or do you prefer a different “all-purpose” seasoning in your spice cabinet?

Tell me more and hopefully some of these recipe ideas start to make the rotation in your kitchen. If they do, be sure to take @plan_prep_pack_plate on Intagram!
