How to Make Homemade Everything Bagel Buns

Everything bagel seasoning is everywhere! You no longer have to order a whole bagel to get the delicious taste of onion, sea salt, poppy seeds, and sesame seeds.

From salads to salmon, hashbrowns to soups - this is a seasoning combination that is guaranteed to improve every meal you make - including buns for burgers, sandwiches, and snacks.


These bagel buns will taste just like the ones you get at your favorite bakery, but better because they’re guaranteed fresh. And the best part is that they’re easy to make and ready to eat in just over an hour and a half.

You can use a stand mixer for this recipe or mix the dough by hand. Don’t be too precious about forming your bagel buns. The shape won’t contribute to the taste!

You can double your batch to make a few trays at a time if you’re baking for a crowd. If you somehow manage to end up with leftovers, they will keep fresh for about two days after baking if you wrap them up tightly. They generally don’t last that long without getting eaten, though.

Let’s dive into this delicious recipe!
