What is Everything Bagel Seasoning

This blend typically includes:

  • Sesame seeds: Adds a nutty taste and a bit of crunch.
  • Poppy seeds: Contributes a slightly tart flavor and additional texture.
  • Dried minced onion: Offers a sweet, savory flavor.
  • Garlic powder: Enhances with a robust, savory punch.
  • Kosher salt: Balances flavors and brings everything together.

You can find premade everything bagel seasoning at the store or mix your own. Adjusting the amounts lets you customize the flavor profile to suit your taste.

I usually buy one from Trader Joe’s (that is the one I used for this recipe) or from Costco (if you are a heavy everything user).

Step-by-Step Preparing Guide

Preparing the Popcorn

Start by choosing how to pop your popcorn. You can use a stovetop, microwave, or an air popper. Each method works fine, so pick whatever suits you best.

Once popped, place about 8 cups of popcorn in a large bowl.

Combining the Ingredients

Melt 2-4 tablespoons of butter (vegan butter works too). In a small bowl, stir the melted butter with a teaspoon of garlic powder.

Drizzle half the butter mixture over the popcorn and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle half the everything bagel seasoning and mix well. Repeat with the remaining butter and seasoning.

Make sure each piece is well-coated. To ensure even distribution, shake the bowl with a lid on it, if you have one.

Serve immediately for the best flavor and crunch. Enjoy your Everything Bagel Popcorn as a unique and tasty snack!

Storage and Freshness

To keep your Everything Bagel Popcorn fresh, store it in an airtight container. This helps to prevent the popcorn from becoming stale.

After you’ve made your tasty treat, let it cool completely before placing it into the container. This step is important to avoid moisture buildup, which can make the popcorn soggy.

Tips for Best Results:

  • Use an airtight container: Ensure it seals well to keep out air and moisture.
  • Store at room temperature: Keep the container in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
  • Eat within a week: For the best taste and texture, consume your popcorn within 7 days.
