I have a confession to make – I hate everything bagels. I’ve never liked them and never will. So when a friend shared these everything spiced nuts with me, I was reluctant to try them. I have since found them to be delicious and addicting.
Seeing how much I enjoyed them, my friend shared the recipe with me. It’s from a magazine the origins of which are long gone. The recipe itself was sparse on details but with some trial and error I modified the recipe to something that works for me.
Out of convenience I use Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning blend but you can find any number of recipes on the Internet on how to make a blend from scratch. They all have the same basic ingredients – sesame seeds (white, black or both), poppy seeds, minced dried onion, minced dried garlic, and salt.
The recipe didn’t specify if raw or roasted nuts should be used. I assumed it meant raw nuts but since it’s easier for me to get unsalted, roasted nuts I adjusted the baking time down accordingly. And while the seasoning mix had sea salt, I thought the recipe could use a bit more.
It’s a very simple recipe and can be customized to your tastes. You could use only your favorite nuts instead of buying a pre-made mix. You could reduce the salt or add some cayenne to add a little heat.
I recently made a double batch for friends and it was gone within a matter of days. It’s great as a gift or as a snack on the plane. Enjoy!Print
This is an addicting snack and a fun way to use everything bagel spice mix.
4 cups roasted, unsalted mixed nuts*
1 egg white
2 tablespoons everything seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
Whisk the egg white in a large bowl until frothy. Add remaining ingredients and mix well to coat.
Spread nuts on the prepared baking sheet and bake until toasted, about 20 – 22 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Let cool.
*If you use raw nuts you may need to increase the baking time by 5-10 minutes.
