Rub it on Roast Meat: Everything bagel seasoning makes for a tasty rub: Try it on roast meat or roasted chicken. When you’re preparing the meat, add in some of our seasoning, using butter or olive oil to spread it around. Cook it up and enjoy!

Maximize Mac n Cheese: Before you add the top layer of cheese, add in some everything bagel seasoning in to take it up a notch.

Put it on Pizza: We all know that oregano is a classic seasoning for pizza, but you don’t have to stop there. Add some everything bagel seasoning to the top, or mix it in the crust if you’re making it from scratch.

Make an Olive Oil Dressing: If you’re making your own salad dressing and are low on ingredients, you can make a quick and easy dressing with everything bagel seasoning and some extra virgin olive oil! Taste the dressing as you’re making it to get the proportions are just right.

Add to Pancakes: Everything bagel seasoning on a pancake can taste similar to a bagel, but pancakes are easier to make on your own, and less time consuming. We’re digging this one on the weekends.

Toss in Trail Mix: Trail Mix is a great snack, but everything bagel seasoning is a nice way to make it more exciting. An extra savory boost to your mix!

Bloody Mary: Everyone loves a good Bloody Mary. Instead of putting salt on the rim of your glass, try everything bagel seasoning. It’s a great way to add some flavor to your drink.

Avocado Toast: Avocado toast is already a hit. Imagine elevating that flavor even more with some everything bagel seasoning. Yum!
