How to Make Everything Bagel Seasoning From Scratch (FYI, You Already Own Every Ingredient)

Thanks to a certain quirky grocery store with a (much-deserved) crazy cult following, the demand for everything bagel seasoning blends has reached new heights. What used to just be a beloved bagel variety is now a condiment that can only compete with ranch dressing, hot sauce, or ketchup—serious fans wouldn’t dare eat scrambled eggs, avocado toast, macaroni and cheese, or hummus without it. For those who make frequent trips to the supermarket to purchase everything bagel seasoning, we have great news: you can make it from scratch in less than five minutes, and you probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry. Feel free to adjust the ratios in the recipe to suit your personal palette. Love garlic? Add extra. Hate poppy seeds? Skip ‘em. To kick the flavor up a notch, combine the seeds and spices in a skillet over medium heat for a couple of minutes to toast them. Prepare yourself—and your roasted veggies—for salty, seedy deliciousness.
