If you are ever on the Aldi Facebook Group, you can’t go a day without someone mentioning the Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning. Most people rave about it, while a small select few think it might be a tad too salty. Bottom line? I knew it was something I was going to have to add to the list to hunt for at my local store.
Ways to Use Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning
You can see ideas daily in the Facebook group, or several fan sites list a ton of ideas. Obviously, you can make bagels at home and sprinkle Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning on as a topping. You could do the same with homemade crackers. Like cottage cheese? Shake a little bit on top of the creamy curdy goodness the next time you indulge. Instead of reaching for the Parmesean shaker the next time you eat a pizza, use the Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning! You get the idea. It seems like they have new “favorite” ideas added weekly.
What is in Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning?
The big question most people about Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning is “What is in it?”. Simply put, it is a collection of a variety of ingredients that one commonly finds on top of a bagel, mostly things you would find in your own pantry. Namely, with toasted sesame seeds, dried garlic, dried onion, poppy seed, and salt. Yes, you could make it yourself, but they have the mix balanced out perfectly and it is just $1.95 per bottle.
7 Ways to Use Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning
Here is my list of 7 killer ways to use Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning – all tried by me and adored!
Veggies – both raw and cooked
I have sprinkled it over the top of my salad as a seasoning. I usually do a spring mix of greens, feta cheese, sliced red onion, sliced strawberries, a few blueberries, some trail mix or candied walnuts, few frozen peas (that I thawed), and a sliced hard-boiled egg. A shake or two of the Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning goes into my lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil mix that I toss with it all.
Steamed veggies rock out the Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning blend too! You can get just about any kind of veggie in a microwave-steaming type pouch. Even if you cook the veggies “old school” try adding a little butter and let it melt on the veggies. Then sprinkle on the seasoning and toss to coat the veggies evenly. My absolute favorite is on California Blend! I could eat that for days…
Bake potatoes? Heck yes! Butter, Sour Cream, and a shake of Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning for heaven on a plate.
Try a nice multi-grain toast with either the Aldi avocado dip/spread smeared on it and then a quick shake of the Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning OR a light smear of cream cheese, add fresh slices of avocado, and then sprinkle with the Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning. Either way is a winner!

Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning will take them all to the next level! The next time you make deviled eggs sprinkle a little of the seasoning over the top of them. It will act like a paprika-like garnish and elevate the flavor.
Microwave popcorn? It is “adultified” with a shake or two of the Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning on it right out of the bag.
Cucumber sandwiches have never been tastier! If you have ever had to host a tea party with a little princess – that little cream cheese, cucumber, and bread sandwich tastes better with the Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning mixed into the cream cheese before you spread it.
I even tried it on my shrimp cups and it was incredible. It really adds to any appetizer I have tried.
Sorry for those who are low-carb – but any bread you can think of needs this. It is great in my crouton recipe! Fantastic on grilled cheese. Perfect with cream cheese for plain bagels. It rocks out on toasted pita chips, and so much more.
You can whip up a quick marinade with a few shakes of red wine vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and the Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning. You are now set for everything from pork chops to steak.
We like to rub boneless skinless chicken breasts with a little olive oil, then sprinkle with the seasoning before popping into a baking dish and cooking for about an hour at 350 degrees.
Whip up a few hamburgers and use this as seasoning before you pop them onto the grill, it beat out my all-time favorite Lawrey’s!
I know – they are a vegetable, but this is so amazing that they need their own category. We whip them up in the air fryer and drool until they are ready to eat.
You will need:
- 1 pound Brussels Sprouts
- 2 cups water
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
- 3-4 Tablespoons Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning
Rinse the Brussels sprouts off and add them to a medium sauté pan with about 2 cups of water. Cover and cook them over medium heat for about 8-10 minutes. In a small bowl combine the Parmesan cheese and Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning. Set aside.
Drain Brussels sprouts and allow them to cool, then half & quarter each one. Then toss them in the seasoned Parmesan cheese mixture. Transfer the Brussel sprouts to the air fryer. Cook for 15-20 minutes at 375-380°F or until crispy. Make sure to toss a couple of times during cooking. Seriously, your eyes will roll back up into your head when you eat them.
**I want to try this with potatoes too!
Sheet Pan Dinner
There is no secret that I love sheet pan dinners – they make for one of the easiest and tastiest suppers you can whip up! Take a large bowl and to it add:
- 1 pound cut
- 1 sliced onion
- 1 Polish kielbasa, cut into chunks
- 2 cans of cut green beans (drained)
Toss with a few Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and then a few shakes of ns Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning. Pop onto the sheet pan, cover with foil and bake 400° for 40 minutes.
I just love how the ingredients on a sheet pan meal blend together as they slightly caramelize as they roast – it’s hard to describe until you actually try it.
That gives you actually a lot more than 7 Ways to Use Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning, but once you actually try it yourself? You will be looking at everything from scrambled eggs to ranch dip and asking yourself “how would it taste if….”
All I can say is GO FOR IT!
Varieties of Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning
While I am a fan of the original 5-spice blend, Aldi is now selling Everything Bagel Seasonings In Jalapeño, Asiago Cheese, And Himalayan Pink Salt Flavors. These are NEW, and I have yet to try them. The jalapeño would be a great version to use with any intended Tex-Mex kind of dish. Asiago Cheese is a natural for anything Italian, and as for the Himalayan Salt? I am unimpressed with how it is any different than regular table salt. I just don’t buy into the hype about it – especially PINK Himalayan salt. I’m just “meh” about it. I would stick with the original Aldi Everything Bagel Seasoning instead of branching out to try the Himalayan version.
What variety are you going to try first?
