A great seasoning to make and use on salads, "breads" and crumbing of protein.

One of the most popular and easy seasonings for baked goods. Certainly, don’t stop there either as it is equally good on salads or even in something as simple as avocado or eggs. Everything But the Bagel is a winner in my books.

Why We Love This Recipe

I fell in love with this seasoning a few years ago now. I am sure if you haven’t yet tried it you will soon be a convert.

It is so easy to make your own if you don’t have a local Trader Joes. For those of us following a keto lifestyle this is a great seasoning to have in our pantry. I use it a lot with crackers, parmesan crisps, and of course our perfect keto bagels.


Small bowls of the ingredients for Bagel Seasoning.

Here is all you need to make your very own Everything Bagel seasoning. For all the measures just scroll to the recipe card below.

All the ingredients can be found in most supermarkets.

Nigella Seeds – I do buy these from local Indian food suppliers and they are also available at Elite Health Supplements. Black sesame can be substituted in the everything bagel recipe, but I do prefer the flavour of the nigella seeds.

Onion Granules – flaked dried onion are often found in the larger jars of Masterfoods spices and seasonings in the spice aisle of the supermarket.

Step by Step How to Make It

A bowl filled with everything but the bagel seasoning and a spoon.

To make your own homemade Everything Bagel Seasoning is very simple. You more than likely have all the ingredients in your keto pantry right now.

To make it simply mix in a bowl and store in an airtight jar.

To make your own Everything Bagel in a Thermomix or Magimix just add the ingredients to your mixer and mix 5 sec/speed 4.
