After hearing ENDLESS good things about Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning, I finally purchased it and obviously am as obsessed as everyone else! I have put together a list of some ideas of ways that you can use it, since so many of you requested, and included options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, sides and even a cocktail! In case you are new, Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning is a blend of black and white sesame seeds, dried minced garlic and onion, sea salt flakes and poppy seeds. It is salty and savory and will totally remind you of your favorite bagel!

1. Avocado Toast

Who doesn't love a good Avocado toast - am I right? I found this easy recipe for Everything Bagel Avocado Toast (it takes five minutes flat). You can even go the extra mile and add a sunny side up egg on top!

2. Poke Bowls

I can't wait to try this Salmon and Avocado Poke Bowl recipe using Everything but the Bagel (also going to try this with some fresh Ahi Tuna)! It will definitely add a deliciously salty, garlicky flavor to every bite.

3. Butternut Squash Soup

I tried to make Butternut Squash Soup last year, but it felt like it was missing something (aka I failed miserably and ended up throwing it away!). I am totally going to try adding Everything but the Bagel to give it that extra flavor and give myself a second chance!

4. Grilled Salmon

I love eating healthy and salmon is one of my go-to dishes to cook when I'm on a health kick! Keep it simple and drizzle your salmon in olive oil and lemon juice, season with Everything but the Bagel, and throw it on the grill!

5. Cauliflower Rice

I am in love with Trader Joe's Cauliflower Rice and adding the Everything but the Bagel seasoning makes it even more delicious! And it's a great side for your Grilled Salmon dish!

BONUS TIP: Use Everything but the Bagel to season the rim of your Bloody Mary! Now THAT is a cocktail!

Enjoy! And let me know if you try any of these recipes!
