Everything bagel toasted with vegetable cream cheese and a glass of orange juice. This was it. My must have order at my neighborhood bagel shop when I was in high school. It might sound strange but I have so many fond memories that took place at this bagel shop. Every Friday, two of my teachers would send me off campus (against school policy) to pick up a bagel for each of them. In exchange for risking getting caught, they would also pay for my bagel. I surprised my then best friend there to take her on a scavenger hunt for her 16th birthday. This was the place I would hang out with my youth group friends on Sundays after church.
That bagel shop is long gone and, frankly, I don’t eat bagels on the regular any more anyway. However, I love incorporating that nostalgic everything seasoning into other dishes these days. Yes, if you have a Trader Joes nearby, you can purchase a pre-made blend of the seasoning. Not everyone has that luxury though. Thankfully, everything blend is incredibly easy to make and very versatile in cooking. I routinely sprinkle everything seasoning over avocado toast, on salads, on biscuits or bread just before popping them in the oven. I think it would be incredible on pizza crust as well. Let me know how you end up using this everything seasoning!
