You can increase your ROI if you add pepitas!

I LOVE pepitas and almost always have some on hand. They're one of my fave snackies. Great addition to your blend, Kay!

RF...I watched the video and my attention kept drifting towards the cute little happy baby with the cranial helmet - my grandson had to wear one of those his first year of life too, so I was kind of distracted.

No doubt, TJ's product in the store is a good buy at $2 but my reason for making my own custom blend was a more complex but lower salt version.

This is the ingredient list for Trader Joe's version...in order of content.


SESAME SEEDS, SEA SALT FLAKES, DRIED MINCED GARLIC, DRIED MINCED ONION, BLACK SESAME SEEDS, POPPY SEEDS

"Lower salt version" Bingo! That is one reason I started mixing my own spice blends. A lot of them start with salt as the first ingredient! And now that I've been doing this, my doctor told me that I need to start using more salt.

Nom nom nom nom.

Nice!

Are the tomatoes raw, or par-baked/roasted?

If roasted a bit, I love tomatoes topped with spice/herb blend as in an Irish breakfast.

The Roma tomatoes are raw Bucky. I don't think I'd like them cooked on this.
The layers from the bottom to the top are butter on the toasted bagel, soft cream cheese, capers, paper thin red onion, lox, tomato, s&p and the custom Everything but the Bagel topping.

recipe, seasoning

Everything Bagel Seasoning After recently discussing [B]Trader Joe's Everything Bagel Seasoning [/B]I put together a version with less salt for my mostly green salad needs. I tested it on top of my lunch salad and it tasted great, so thought I'd pass on the idea for a creation of your own. [B]My Everything Bagel Seasoning[/B] cup black sesame seeds cup. white sesame seeds cup crushed sliced almonds cup sunflower seeds 1 Tbsp. dried minced garlic (I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic granules) 2 Tbsp. dried minced onion 2 tsp. flake salt (I used Hawaiian Sea Salt) Mix everything except salt in a small skillet and toast till fragrant and slightly toasted. Transfer to a heat proof bowl and stir in salt. Let cool completely then transfer to a jar. Keep in freezer to maintain freshness. 3 stars 1 reviews
