The popular bagel seasoning of poppy seed, sesame seed, onion, and garlic flakes turns super crispy crackers into a knockout addition to your cheese board and are so easy to make. We love the rustic look of large shards, but you can also cut the rolled dough into rectangles before baking. Keep the dough rises to just 10 minutes each, otherwise the texture of the crackers may be chewy rather than crisp.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325°F.

  • Place 1 1/4 cups water and yeast in the bowl of stand mixer fitted with dough hook; let stand 10 minutes or until foamy. Add flour, oil, honey, and 1 teaspoon salt to yeast mixture; beat at medium-low speed 10 minutes or until a supple dough forms. Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray; cover with plastic wrap.

  • Let dough rise in a warm place (80°F to 85°F), free from drafts, 10 minutes or until 1/4 larger in size. Divide into 3 equal portions. Cover with plastic wrap; let rise 10 more minutes or until 1/4 larger in size.

  • Combine remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion, and garlic. Flip a baking sheet over so that the bottom is facing up; coat with cooking spray. Roll 1 dough portion to an 18- x 12-inch rectangle on a lightly floured work surface (keep remaining dough portions covered to prevent drying). Place dough on prepared pan. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sesame seed mixture, pressing to adhere.

  • Bake at 325°F for 25 minutes or until crisp. Cool on pan 15 minutes; place on a wire rack, and cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough, egg white, and seed mixture. Once completely cool, break crackers into medium pieces.
