I have been buying Everything Bagel Seasoning for awhile now because I am obsessed with my Everything Bagel Avocado Toast. It is one of my go to breakfasts and snacks.

    1. Black sesame seed can be found at Indian, Pakistani and health food stores. Pensey’s spices carry it either in your local store or by mail and Amazon will mail it to you anywhere.

  1. This is wonderful!! I never thought of doing this myself and now I can’t wait to make your recipe, but I did purchase the new seasoning with the same name at Trader Joe’s. One favorite way I use it other than on muffins and bread is mixing it with fresh mozzarella cheese and serving it on toast or on top of fresh sliced tomatoes… a quick melt under the broiler takes this over the top. Now my husband enjoys the cheese!! It is also great on scrambled eggs…..

  2. Thank you so much for this. If anybody makes whole wheat everything bagels, I can’t find them where I live. Now I can have everything on any bagel I want, as much as I want. I plan to dress baked potatoes with it, too. I did leave out the salt. For me, it turns out it isn’t necessary.

  3. Hi, do you know if the dried minced garlic (and possibly the coarse salt also) can be substituted with garlic salt instead? I am just trying to use ingredients I already have in my spice rack. 🙂

  4. I just love this so much. My husband and I have been obsessed with this for months now (favorite combo for us is mashed avocado on top toasted bagel half with a GENEROUS sprinkle of this mix). I am having a brunch this month and am making this mix and putting it in 125ml jars for each guest as a little gift. Love you site – thank you!!

  5. I put this on everything but fruit, but the day may come when I just want to throw those into the menu as well!!!

  6. I can’t find black sesame seeds, can I make this without them or will it just not taste the same. Seems like the only place around me (Canada) is amazon and it’s expensive.

    1. I don’t where you are but I live in London Ontario, and I go to Remark and they have them at a reasonable price. I realize this is late news for you, but for future reference, and possibly just asking in the grocery store to order them in.

    2. I found an organic bag of it at a decent price on Amazon! There were several choices and sizes available, check it out!

    3. I live in Canada as well, and I found black sesame seeds at No Frills if there is one near you. 🙂

  7. I just made a batch of this to refill my TJ’s bottle instead of buying another one. Not only is it essentially a perfect copycat of my favorite seasoning blend, it actually fills up the empty bottle perfectly! Thank you for this!

  8. Do you need to refrigerate the everything bagel seasonings? How long can you keep it, in cupboard or in refrigerator?

    1. Black sesame seed can be found at Indian, Pakistani and health food stores. Pensey’s spices carry it either in your local store or by mail and Amazon will mail it to you anywhere.

  9. Can I use coarse kosher salt or coarse pink Himalayan salt instead of the salt flakes or will it give it too much of a salt taste with each bite?

  10. Thanks! We are a low salt family, so I just left it out and it tastes great, in case any one else wants to know!
