I used to think there was no better way to start the day than with an everything bagel. Honestly, I would sometimes eat one for breakfast and follow it with an everything bagel sandwich for lunch. I was obsessed with all of those amazing spices speckled across the top of the bagel and I just couldn’t get enough

I quickly left my love for everything bagels behind when we had to eliminate gluten from our home. I knew I couldn’t have it and so I refused to even give them a second glance when I went to the store. I would purposely avoid the bread aisle all together just so I wouldn’t get a wiff of those scrumptious bagels.

Fast forward a few years and I had all but forgotten about my everything bagel addiction until one night I had a dream. I dreamed I was throwing a dinner party, not a fancy dinner party, just dinner with a few friends and I was serving gigantic grain bowls with roasted veggies. When we all sat to eat I had a small bowl on the table filled with some type of spice blend. I smelled the bowl when it was passed to me and I immediately knew what it was. It was everything bagel spice! I sprinkled it over everything on my plate and was seriously bummed out when I was woken up halfway through my meal by my alarm.

I knew I was going to have to give making everything bagel spice a whirl asap– I needed it back in my life and fast! Ever since I made my first batch of this spice blend I have been giving all sorts of dishes the everything bagel-fication treatment. I sprinkle it on eggs and avocado toast at breakfast, I season my cashew cream with it at lunch for a fancy spread for my sandwich and I definitely sprinkle it liberally over my entire dinner.

I think you need to get in on this too!

  1. This is brilliant. I used to also love everything bagels and haven’t thought about them in years. So on this.

    (By the way, the video ads on the sidebar of your blog completely bog down the browser, and make your site load very slowly and navigation cumbersome. Thought you might want to know.)

    • Hooray! I am so glad that you can spice up your food with everything spice again! Sorry about the video, we will look into it and see what we can do to speed up the load time. 🙂

    Hi Meg,
    This is your old neigh … I just love love your recipes! Since we live locally to each other… Please share where you found the Massel All Purpose Bouillon & Seasoning Granules in chicken. I’ve called several Bristol Farms & none have it. Thank you!

    • Awww, hi Blanca! So great to hear from you! I actually work with Massel, I develop recipes for them and I am just in love with their products. They are an Australian company that launched in the US last year and although they are expanding their availability rapidly, they still aren’t in Long Beach yet. They are in Manhattan Beach and Newport Beach Bristol Farms, but probably the easiest thing to do is order them through Amazon 🙂 I hope you are doing well and would love to know what you think about Massel when you give it a try!

    What can i use instead of the massel granules? I’m vegan and don’t like anything chicken flavored (even if it is vegan chicken flavor)

    • Massel has vegetable broth granules as well that taste amazing in this, but you could try it without any bouillon type seasoning at all.
