Today’s TSP Item of the day is SPQR Everything Bagel Seasoning. Before I fully committed to low carb one of the biggest temptations I fell for was bagels, and everything bagels. Man toasted in the oven with some cream cheese and baked thick bacon. I will say even now I would rather have that for a cheat day then a piece of cake or a bag of some shitty candy.
So the first time someone told me you could buy Everything Bagel Seasoning I felt like saying “Shut Your Ass” like Raj did on Big Bang Theory. I then wondered why I never thought of it, I mean the bagel people get it somewhere right! It isn’t made of magic, in fact this is what is in this Everything Bagel Seasoning…
- Sesame Seeds
- Sea Salt Flakes
- Dried Minced Garlic
- Dried Minced Onion
- Black Sesame Seeds
- Poppy Seeds
Not exactly top secret and no need to break into a lab to get any of the ingredients. It is one of those things though that is far simpler to buy premixed than make yourself though. One quick warning while not a ton, it does have poppy seeds they have caused false positives on drug tests for opiates but that usually requires a LOT of them right before a test.
Now I just posted the Dash Mini Waffle Maker this week too and how to make chaffels with it. That is my favorite thing to put this one, see the video below for more on that. But it is goon on anything that you want to be zesty anyway. Dan Akroid once said of Tabasco Sauce that he put it on “anything humans consume”, while I won’t go that far with this stuff it is very versatile.
The newest way we are using it is for low carb crackers. To do this we just use “carb ballance” tortillias, hit them with a bit of egg wash for stickiness and add the seasoning to them and bake about 20ish minutes at 350. Simple and delicious and they taste a lot like bagel chips too! This would be great on top of any bread or bread substitute and it is just a good seasoning in general. It is also a fantastic salad topper, especially any salad with a meat or fish addition to it. My favorite for that is chicken.
Now on the brand, when I was first told about it my friend said he got it at Trader Joe’s. I tried it, it was good, I also tried a few other brands but when I tried SPQR’s Everything Bagel Seasoning I knew I had found the best of the best. Doesn’t hurt that it costs a hell of a lot less than Trader Joe’s either. At 10 bucks for a 10oz jar, it lasts a long time for the money. I think if you give it a shot it will quickly earn a permanent home in your kitchen. See the two videos below for our two favorite ways to use it.
