Everything Bagel Seasoning
According to David Gussin, he created the everything bagel in the 1980s when he was a teenager, sweeping up after a day hard at work in a bagel shop in Queens, New York City. However, according to Seth Godin, these bagels were already in existence in 1977, since he was making them himself. No matter where exactly the everything bagel came from, it has swept the nation as a favorite flavor, with everything bagels being made in shops all over the country.
The flavor of everything bagels is not only limited to those perfect little dough rings. This flavor has inspired potato chips, fish coatings, donuts, and even everything bagel flavored ice cream. Of course, the everything bagel is synonymous with New York City's food culture, as well as the people in the city themselves. After all there's a little bit of everything in the city!
The origins of the everything bagel may still be a mystery, but the origins of this seasoning blend are less obscure. Inspired by the everything bagels we know and love, this blend captures that classic flavor and invites you to add it to everything you possibly can.
Bagels have been around for longer than the United States has been. The origins of bagels are credited to Jewish communities in Poland, with the first written record of bagel is in a 1610 community ordinance. To this day, bagels are especially popular in areas with a greater Jewish population. People think that the best bagels in the world come from New York City because of the water, but really what it comes down to is skill. For the best bagels, you need your dough to have been boiled for a short period and then baked, so the finished product is chewy and soft. Most commercial bagels are steamed and then baked, but this is just not the same as a quality handmade bagel from a specialty shop.
Our Everything Bagel Seasoning is hand blended with poppy seeds, garlic, sea salt, sesame, and onion.
Everything Bagel seasoning is savory, garlicky, and oniony, with a nice nutty crunch from the sesame.
This tastes like Monday morning subway rush in New York City, like grandma's house on the weekend breakfast table buffet, or like college freshman dorm room toasters and microwaves making the only two things you know how to (bagels and pasta of some sort).
Put this blend on everything from bagels to popcorn. Everything bagel pasta is a neat little invention that involves little effort for some incredibly delicious results. First make an amount of pasta that you are comfortable with eating, since this recipe isn't great for leftovers. One pound of linguine is enough for most family style dinners. Cook the pasta, saving about 1 ½ to 2 cups of the pasta water on the side. Combine the pasta, ½ a block of cream cheese, and about a cup of water. This will give you a creamy pasta sauce but add more water as desired. Finish off with two tablespoons of the everything bagel seasoning blend and stir it into the pasta. You may want to add a single tablespoon of the seasoning and taste it, then add more as desired. Our blends are extremely flavorful. This recipe takes all of fifteen to twenty minutes to make and is delicious and very reminiscent of everything bagels. Serve with some fresh, steamed vegetables for a full and flavorful meal. This is best served immediately, as the longer it sits the stickier it will get. Experiment with different kinds of cream cheese, as you may like the whipped consistency better than the block type of cream cheese.
Use this blend on anything you would like to taste like an everything bagel. You can use it on eggs, pasta, or meat. Use it on vanilla ice cream for a savory crunch that compliments the vanilla nicely. Use it on homemade doughballs. If you make your own biscuits, you could even throw some of this seasoning on those, too.
Use less of the seasoning than you think you are going to need, as our seasoning blends are all extremely flavorful. This is a delicious addition to many different types of food! Experiment to see what you like best.
