My go-to type (and, I would argue, the best type) of bagel is the everything bagel. The salty, seedy seasoning is irresistible, and frankly deserves to used on far more than just bagels. Case in point: All this month we’re cooking through Deb Perelman’s latest cookbook, Smitten Kitchen Every Day, and one of the runaway favorites so far is her recipe for Everything Drop Biscuits with Cream Cheese.
Clearly, our Cookbook Club shares my love of everything bagel seasoning, but there’s no need to miss out if you don’t have Perelman’s book yet. Whether you make your own blend or use a premixed one (the Club is partial to Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend), we’ve rounded up 13 ideas for putting it to good use:
All of the Breads
If you’re making bagels at home, go forth and make them everything bagels, of course, but don’t stop there. Sprinkle everything bagel seasoning on all sorts of breads: biscuits, scones, focaccia, and so much more.
Snacks & spreads
So many snacks could benefit from a sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning, from nut mixes to savory granola to popcorn. Sprinkle it on spreads like hummus or your next slice of avocado toast, too.
Don’t stop yet! We’re dreaming of everything bagel–crusted baked potatoes and adding the seasoning blend to breading mixtures for mozzarella sticks or chicken tenders.
