Everything Bagel Croutons.

By: Maren Swanson • September 23rd, 2019
Everything Bagel Croutons made with Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning.

When I was introduced to Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning, it quickly became my go-to seasoning for almost everything. I was actually a little embarrassed about it. The addiction is real! It all started with avocado toast. My mom had come into town for a visit and I made her avocado toast for the first time with Everything but the Bagel Seasoning. She said she liked it, but I knew she loved it when I received a text photo a week later of her making the same dish for herself one morning in Arizona. Two addicts. Guess it runs in the family…?

So how did I stumble on the idea to make Everything Bagel Croutons? Our neighbor had just thrown a birthday party for their daughter upstairs and later that day dropped off two bags of leftover bagels. Whether it was a guilt gift for not inviting us or one for all the noise they made, I’ll never know, but I knew my husband and I would never be able to eat all of the bagels.

Instead of tossing the excess bagels, I cut them up, tossed them in olive oil spray, sprinkled them with Everything but the Bagel Seasoning and toasted them up. This recipe is so easy and so delicious! I used a combination on Everything, Onion and Plain bagels, but I think Sesame bagels would work really well too. I brought over a bag of them to my friend’s house and she placed them in a bowl next to the dips and everyone loved dipping them, so I also suggest these for snack spreads.

These Everything Bagel Croutons would also be fantastic in a Caesar salad. I’m creating a few other recipes with these, so stay tuned. You can find the Everything but the Bagel Seasoning at Trader Joes for around $2, which is an amazing price, but what’s even more exciting is that the Everything but the Bagel seasoning has finally found its missing mate.
