You can also substitute coarse kosher salt for coarse sea salt if you cannot find it in your local grocery stores.
How To Make This Everything Bagel Seasoning Recipe
Toasting the sesame seeds brings out their nutty flavor. Once this step is finished, you will mix all of the seasonings together to create this flavorful spice blend.
OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS
This bagel seasoning blend can easily be halved or doubled according to your needs.
STEP ONE: In a small, dry (no added oil) skillet, on medium-low heat, add the white and black sesame seeds.
While constantly moving the seeds around, toast the seeds for 1 to 2 minutes, being careful not to burn them.
You can skip the toasting of your sesame seeds if you want. Toasting the seeds adds a great flavor but can be omitted and the seasoning blend will still be tasty.
STEP TWO: Add the toasted sesame seeds to a small bowl.
You can use a 2-cup glass measuring cup with a pour spout to mix this seasoning blend in. This makes it easier to pour into your storage container (½ pint mason jar) after mixing the spices together.
STEP THREE: Add the poppy seeds, dried onion, dried garlic, and salt to the bowl with the sesame seeds.
STEP FOUR: Mix the ingredients together.
STEP FIVE: Transfer the seasoning blend to a small mason jar with a tight-fitting lid.
