Oh, everything bagel seasoning: Is there anything you can't do?

You may have seen the famous bagel seasoning blend at places like Trader Joe's, or maybe Whole Foods. And you may have wondered what to do with it, especially if bagels have long left your dietary rotation in favor of whole grains. Or maybe you're following a keto or paleo diet, or you've gotta be gluten free and bagels feel like ancient history to you. This seasoning blend tastes great on a lot of things, especially when mixed with nuts. (If you just got a random craving for a bagel and something sweet, try these low-carb pumpkin spice bagels!)

Cashews of course taste great in various cooking preparations (like Instant Pot Cashew Chicken, for example), but this seasoning trick ups the ante on a great snack for the lunchbox, on the trail, or anywhere, really. Because you never know when you might need a snack. A good one that's full of protein works well.

How to Make Everything Bagel Cashews

It's simple. You combine the cashews with lightly beaten egg whites, along with a bunch of different seasonings. They bake in a low oven and come out just right. The egg whites help the seasonings stick to the cashews and they add some more protein; this snack packs 10 grams of protein, and that's not even counting what else you might serve it with.

Substitutions and Alternations

Don't have cashews? Try almonds, walnuts, or pecans, or some combination of all of them. It'll be good. The cashews, however, take well to the everything bagel seasoning because the surface is more smooth in comparison to those other nut types. Nevertheless, it will work. And variety is nice, right?

What to Serve With Everything Bagel Cashews

This snack is great on its own, of course, but for a supercharged protein-driven nosh, serve these cashews with 4-ounce paleo jerky sticks that you've sliced into bite-sized pieces. (They make for a super-cute prep job, too.) A good sharp cheddar is nice complement to nuts, too.

Vegetarians or vegans? Fresh fruit is always a great accompaniment to nuts. Strawberries and blueberries in particular feel like good picks.

What Else Can I do With Everything Bagel Seasoning?

If you fall in love with this (what's not to love?), feel free to make more of the seasoning itself. Just leave out the egg whites, naturally, and store in an airtight container. Labeling it with the contents and the date helps, too, as sometimes seasoning blends can clump together and lose their pizzazz over time. Here are some other ideas for using it.

  • Sprinkle it on eggs—scrambled, fried, or otherwise
  • Add a dash on top of sliced avocado, along with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, for some heart-healthy fats.
  • Toss it with french fries (air fryer sweet potato fries, perhaps?)
  • Add it to a seasoning mix when you cook chicken or salmon
  • Top butternut squash soup with a dash of it
  • Add half a teaspoon (to start) to an easy vinaigrette
  • Sprinkle it on freshly popped popcorn
