Everything Bagel Spread

Everything Bagel Spread

When I think about an everything bagel, poppy seeds, onion and garlic flavours come to mind. I thought it would be pretty cool to have a plain mini bagel with a light cream cheese spread made up of everything that goes onto an everything bagel, plus more – an everything bagel spread! 

You could keep this recipe simple by just using onion flakes, minced garlic and poppy seeds, or follow the recipe for more flavours! I went with the typical poppy seeds, dried onion flakes, minced garlic, and then added in black and white sesame seeds, caraway seeds and nigella seeds. All of the flavours go together so well, I couldn’t stop at one bagel… I had about three… or maybe it was four….who’s counting really? So good! Have a mini bagel with everything bagel spread for breakfast or as a snack! Lighten it up with fat free cream cheese or make it decadent and rich with the full fat version. As always, you choice!

This recipe is very easy to make and can be whipped up in minutes; however, the longer you let it refrigerate (I recommend at least 2 hours), the more the flavours will meld together and be more amazing! 

Combine the onion, garlic and seeds in a bowl.

Add in the cream cheese and mix well using a spatula or fork, combining everything really well. Cover your bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours. Toast your bagel, spread with everything bagel spread and enjoy for breakfast or an afternoon snack!

  1. Oh my gosh, this recipe! Everything bagels are my favorite, but my husband hates when they put them in the same bag as his blueberry bagels – this recipe solves my issue! I can buy plain bagels and use this spread!

    1. Awesome!!! I love that you can make it your own too- more garlic-sure! Less onion- it’s yours!! 😀Enjoy!
