Where to get Everything Bagel Seasoning
While we love Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel seasoning (affiliate link), if craving strikes and you don’t have it, we’ve got you covered. You can make your own Everything Bagel seasoning using simple ingredients such as Poppy Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Black Sesame Seeds, Minced Dried Garlic, Minced Dried Onion, and of course Flaked Sea Salt. Check out our friends over at Two Peas and their Pod for an easy recipe.
Substitutions for our Everything Bagels
Whipping up a batch of bagels for all the members in your home, regardless of diet preference, is part of the reason we love this recipe so much.
You can easily swap out the all-purpose flour for gluten-free flour, the plain whole yogurt for a dairy-free alternative, the egg wash for dairy-free butter, and of course change up the seasonings on your bagel.
Not a fan of Everything Seasonings? Try dusting with some cinnamon sugar or plain sesame seeds only.
How to store your homemade bagels?
This recipe yields 4 bagels. We did this for a couple reasons. Because homemade bagels don’t have the same preservatives as store-bought, they don’t last as long.
They’re best kept only for a few days (3-4) in a plastic bag on your countertop or frozen.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t want to put these in the refrigerator as it will cause them to go stale much more quickly.
Can I freeze my homemade bagels?
Yes! Make multiple batches of these yummy bagels with a variety of toppings and then pop them in the freezer.
Taking completely cooled, sliced bagels and wrapping them in an airtight plastic bag will actually keep your bagels good in the freezer for up to 4 months! Frozen bagels can go right into the toaster oven when you’re ready to consume.
How to make Everything Bagels without yeast?
- To make your bagels for immediate enjoyment, first gather all your ingredients. You’ll need flour, baking powder, salt, yogurt, eggs, water, and seasoning.
- Next, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. These whip up quickly so do this before assembling. Then in a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Then stir in your yogurt and 1 whisked egg. Gently fold with a rubber spatula until the dough starts to come together.
- Turn the dough out onto a well floured surface. Knead dough, occasionally adding additional flour to keep the dough from sticking. Then form the dough into a ball and cut into four sections.
- Shape the dough into your bagels using your desired method. Place them onto a baking sheet and lightly coat with the egg wash. You can make egg wash with an egg and splash of water.
- Sprinkle with everything seasoning or your choice of toppings.
- Bake for 25 minutes. Turn heat down to 350 degrees F and bake for additional 10-15 minutes, or until bagels are browned and cooked through. Allow to cool slightly before splitting and enjoying.
How to shape our bagels…
- The easiest way to shape a bagel with this dough recipe is to form a large ball with the entirety of the dough.
- Then divide that dough into four equal balls.
- Take your thumb and press through the center of each ball. Use your thumb and forefinger to gently work the center hole into a larger opening while squeezing the bagel into an “O” shape.
- When your bagel is to the thickness and size you desire, they’re ready for the egg wash and baking.
