Sweet dreams are made of bagels with cream cheese, I’m telling ya. Oh, that crispy, smooth, savory deliciousness.
There are some pretty great bagels out there, but nothing beats an everything bagel.

This everything bagel seasoning is also a great topping for eggs, avocado, and sandwiches. A little goes a long way, so make sure just to use a sprinkle each time you use it. My personal favorite is on avocado toast topped with a soft boiled egg.
This everything bagel seasoning stores well in an air-tight container in the pantry for up to 6 months. We keep bulk spices in the pantry as well to make it easy to mix together in bulk, and then it's ready to grab any time you need it. This also helps keep the cost way down, especially considering it can be much pricier to buy this type of seasoning ore-made.
