Everything Bagel Sprinkle
When you’re a true everything bagel aficionado, the bagel is not enough! Whip up a batch of this everything bagel sprinkle and get your fix at any time- the possibilities are endless.
Generally, I don’t give much attention to trending foods. It’s not because great ideas can’t be trending ideas, or that they become less great as they reach a wider audience- I’m not entirely sure. I think part of it is that there isn’t much room for creativity, and when I make something that I know has already been done before it precludes me from enjoying the self-satisfaction that results from introducing something totally unique and 100% mine. And honestly, the ubiquity and novelty just gets old after a while. Take the bacon trend, for instance. Bacon is one of the most outstanding and magical foods known to mankind, and yet, now when I see it haphazardly thrown into a perfectly good dessert just for the hell of it, I audibly groan. “Chocolate chip cookies… with BACON!” “Cinnamon rolls… with BACON!” “Pecan pie… with BACON!” I’m sure all of these recipes are delicious, but… it’s gimmicky, ya know?
Right now what’s trending around the food community is the everything bagel, and the infinite foods that can be enhanced by topping them with the bagel’s pantry-friendly blend of seeds and spices. I am totes on board. Everything bagels 4 lyfe.
This everything bagel sprinkle is, well, everything. It takes zero skill and almost no time at all to throw together, and you probably already have all of this stuff in the back of your pantry. Each ingredient brings its own texture to the mix, so it’s like a super cocktail of crunch! Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting some different ways I’ve been using it. I hesitate to call it a “series” because that sounds like a lot of responsibility and I generally run from commitment of any kind. But I have several ideas swirling around in my brain, and they’ve probably all been done before a thousand times, but I’ve decided I don’t care about that right now. So prepare for things to get real gimmicky around here for a bit 🙂
And if I reeeeeally end up selling out, maybe I’ll add some CRUMBLED BACON! Kidding.
