Like everyone else, I was suckered into the everything bagel seasoning craze.
And even though we Canadians don’t have easy access to the famous Trader Joes Everything But the Bagel Seasoning that everyone is bragging about. While you can get it shipped to Canada it is a bit pricey.
So, I ended up buying the Epicure Everything Bagel Seasoning a few months ago instead. But here’s the thing. I have yet to use it.
Primarily because I don’t know what to make with it. When I bought it I just figured I would just sprinkle it on stuff. But never did. There was never a time I thought, “oh ya I got that everything bagel seasoning I should use.” I never knew what I would taste good on.
So I called in reinforcements!

They always have the best recipes! No more Pinterest fails here.
I’ve assembled a list of 10 appetizer recipes that use Everything Bagel Seasoning.
Why appetizer recipes? Because I always like to try new things out on a smaller scale than committing to a main meal. The last thing I need is hungry kids yapping at me because I had another recipe flop.
What is in Everything Bagel Seasoning?
Basically it is a seed blend consisting of Poppy Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Black Sesame Seeds, Minced Dried Garlic, Minced Dried Onion, and Sea Salt. While there are different variations these are the basic ingredients.
Fun Fact: No one really knows who invented the everything bagel seasoning. There are at least four different people who claim to be the inventors but no one knows for sure.
