Everything Bagel Seasoning Mix

Total time 15 mins

Makes 3/4 cup

Delighted. Obsessed. We've been a bit of both since trying the "everything bagel" seed mix at Ox restaurant in Portland. They sprinkle the crunchy combination on barely cooked snap peas tossed with butter and toasted sesame oil. But it's also delicious on scrambled eggs, roast chicken, even toast. This recipe comes from Around the Fire (Ten Speed Press, March 2016) by Ox chefs Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton and Greg Denton, and Stacy Adimando.


  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoons nigella seeds*
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 2 teaspoons dried onion flakes*
  • 2 teaspoons dried garlic flakes*
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Spread sesame and sunflower seeds in a pie pan and bake, shaking twice, until light golden, 7 to 8 minutes. Pour into a bowl.
