Everything But the Bagel seasoning is a delicious savory blend of garlic, salt, onion, pepper, and seeds. Maybe you’ve bought a jar and are wondering how you can use it. We’ve compiled a list of over 30 delicious ways to use this tasty seasoning.
What is Everything But the Bagel Seasoning?
This delicious seasoning blend was first created when a bakery shop owner dumped in all the seasonings for other bagels in the shop and created the “everything” bagel.
The seasoning blend in a jar gives the same taste profile as an everything bagel and typically includes garlic, sesame and poppy seeds, minced dried onion and salt and pepper.
You can purchase this seasoning at Trader Joe’s, Walmart, Amazon.com, Costco or your local grocery store. If you can’t find it, no problem! Use our Homemade Everything But the Bagel recipe and whip up a batch in your kitchen.

Healthy Ways to Use Everything Bagel Mix
The seasoning is a great way to add flavor and punch to lots of healthy recipes and food ideas. Keep in mind that because of the seeds, this seasoning does have some points/calories but they are reasonable.
All of the following ideas are low in points and calories to keep you on the right track with your healthy living goals. As someone who is maintaining a 100 pound weight loss, I understand the importance of having delicious, healthy choices that fit into my points or calorie budget for the day.
Everything seasoning is wonderful for Weight Watchers, Keto, Paleo, Low Carb, Whole 30, and Vegetarian and Vegan diets.
30 Low WW Point & Low Calorie Ways to Use Everything But the Bagel Seasoning
Here are 30 ways to use this seasoning blend.
- Two Ingredient Dough Bagels – These delicious bagels require just 2 ingredients and are great with EBTB seasoning sprinkled on top or incorporated right into the dough.
- Slow Cooker two ingredient bread – Brush the top of your bread with egg white and sprinkle with seasoning before baking.
- Eggs – Whether scrambled, sunny side up, or over-easy, eggs taste amazing with a sprinkle of EBTB seasoning on top.
- Everything But the Bagel Chicken, Salmon, or Pork Chops – Spray with cooking spray or brush meat with light spread of olive oil, then coat generously in Everything seasoning. Bake or air-fry until done. This recipe for air-fryer salmon would be delicious with Everything Bagel seasoning as a substitute for the panko breadcrumbs.
- Steak – Grill or saute steak cut of your choice and sprinkle with Everything seasoning before serving.
- EBTB Chicken Wings – This savory seasoning tastes amazing on chicken wings! While it’s true that wings are higher in fat and calories, one thing my trial of keto taught me is that healthy fat helps with hunger and you eat less overall when you include some in each day’s meals. Use this air fryer chicken wings recipe as a guide.
- Vegetables – Whether grilled, sauteed, pan roasted or air fried, veggie taste better with a sprinkle of EBTB on them.
- Tuna, Chicken, or Egg salad – Add 1-3 tsp of Everything seasoning to your favorite recipe. Use our WW chicken or tuna salad or WW egg salad recipes for a low points version.
- Veggie Dip – Mix 8 oz of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt with 2 tsp EBTB seasoning and you have a delicious dip for raw vegetables.
- Cottage Cheese – Sprinkle on cottage cheese. Serve with a slide of tomato slices.
- Avocado toast – Top light bread, toasted, with 1/4 – 1/2 avocado, smashed and sprinkle with seasoning. If desired, add an egg for extra protein.
- Hard boiled eggs – Sprinkle on for crunch and flavor.
- Deviled Eggs – Sprinkle on top of deviled eggs for a flavor twist. We make our eggs with non-fat, plain Greek yogurt to make a zero point (on MyWW Blue and Purple, low points on Green) deviled egg.
- French fries – Whether store-bought or homemade, try a sprinkle to give a new flavor twist. This is especially good on sweet potato fries.
- Baked Potatoes – Try sprinkled on top of a baked potato. Our air fryer baked potatoes are especially creamy and delicious.
- Laughing Cow Toast – Toast a slice of light bread, spread with a Laughing Cow wedge and sprinkle with seasoning.
- Grilled Cheese – Two slices of light bread, light cheese, a sprinkle of EBTB seasoning and 2 tsp of butter make an amazing sandwich.
- Popcorn – Air-pop or microwave popcorn, spray with a bit of butter flavored spray and sprinkle with EBTB seasoning for a low-calorie savory snack.
- Brown rice – Make brown rice with chicken broth instead of water and sprinkle with Everything seasoning for a delicious side dish that goes with chicken, fish, or pork. Add steamed veggies and dinner is complete.
- Refried beans – Top fat free (zero points on Blue and Purple on WW) refried beans with this seasoning for a different taste combination.
- Salad topper – Instead of high calorie and point-heavy salad dressing, try lemon juice, 1 tsp olive oil and a hearty shake of EBTB seasoning.
