So this week is all about packing and getting ready for the big move from San Diego, California up to the Pacific Northwest around Portland Oregon. We bought a beautiful 2 acre property with lots of elbow room for us and the dogs. More space was the real reason, besides the beauty and family nearby, that made us decide to buy where we did. We have been looking for the past 3 years and even ventured recently into the Salt Lake City, Utah area, but nothing was THE ONE.

I couldn’t be more excited, but sad too, to leave so many great friends here. San Diego has been our home since 1981 and it has grown. Too much for my liking, hence the move. Needless to say this will be bittersweet. 🙂 On to today’s quick and easy recipe!

Everything bagel seasoning

This seasoning blend is so simple to make, yet so delicious. The spices can be whisked together or shaken in a jar with a lid. This recipe makes about a half a cup total.

In a small bowl, just whisk the poppy and sesame seeds, dried garlic and onion, dill seed and kosher salt together until combined.  Store in a sealed jar or container.

Ideas for use:

This seasoning blend is perfect to put on your homemade bagels like I do. This past weekend we made a batch of sourdough wheat bagels and used the everything seasoning on top.

If you’re into making and baking your own goods, I have a fantastic sourdough series for you here on the site!

For the bagels, I give you step by step instructions for amazing sourdough wheat bagels using a sourdough starter, wheat flour and all the toppings.

This seasoning blend is also great on avocado toast, pan seared salmon, chicken, steamed vegetables and sprinkled on salads, popcorn and more.

  2. Hey Kevin! Congratulations on your new home!! It is both very exciting and exhausting to make a move after so many years in one place, I know from moving here to TN and after lived in my home for over twenty-five years. It sounds wonderful, I know you guys will be happy! I think I’d like to try this not only on baked goods but chicken also!
