What is ‘Everything Bagel’?

Everything Bagel Seasoning is that amazing seasoning mix that comes on, you guessed it, Everything Bagels. It’s salty, garlicy and seedy and it should be used on so much more than bagels!

If you don’t have any at home, you can find it at most grocery stores or on buy some on Amazon. I like the Trader Joes version that is called ‘Everything but the Bagel’.

You can also make your own at home if you have a stocked spice rack!

To make enough Everything Bagel seasoning for this recipe, mix together 2 teaspoons garlic flakes, onion flakes, black sesame seeds, and white sesame seeds, 1 teaspoon sea salt, and 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds. Voila! Homemade Everything Bagel mix!

  • Dried Garlic Flakes – Make sure that you use Garlic Flakes and not garlic powder!
  • Dried Onion Flakes – Sam as with the Garlic! Get flakey!
  • Black Sesame Seeds – A more flavorful Sesame seed than the white variety. I love these Black Sesame Seeds!
  • White Sesame SeedsSesame Seeds are a must for every kitchen. I use them to top breads, cookies, and all of my Asian meals!
  • Poppy Seeds – If you still have an old jar that came with your spice rack, throw it out and buy new! Trust me on this. Spices DO go bad and loose their flavor. Buy some new Poppy Seeds.
  • Flaked Sea Salt – I use Maldon Sea Salt every single day. Do NOT use regular table salt!

How to make Homemade Everything Bagel Dinner Rolls

Many people shy away from making yeast breads at home. But don’t let yeast intimidate you!

I’ve made a video that will walk you through every single step of making these Everything Bagel Dinner Rolls. It takes about two and a half hours froms start to finish, depending on the temperature in your house.

If your house is cool (below 72F) it may take a little longer for your rolls to rise.

To make these Everything Bagel Dinner Rolls:

  1. Mix the yeast, 15 grams of sugar and milk together in a bowl. Let the mixture sit for 5 to 10 minutes until it gets foamy.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Whisk them up to make sure the ingredients are well incorporated!
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the yeast mixture while the mixer is running with the dough hook. Once all the dry ingredients are in the bowl and completely combined, turn the mixer off and cover the bowl for 20 minutes. This will give the flour time to hydrate.
  4. Turn the mixer on and add the butter, one small chunk at a time. Continue mixing for 6 to 8 more minutes.
  5. Remove from the bowl onto a floured surface. Knead briefly to form a ball and place in a greased bowl. Cover and let proof for about 45 minutes or until almost doubled in size.
  6. Dump the dough onto a lightly flavored surface and divide into 18 equal pieces. I used a scale and each roll ended up being about 71 grams.
  7. Flatten out each dough ball slightly and then gather up the edges in the center. Pinch together well and then place on the counter with the pinch seam side down.
  8. Cup your hand into a claw-like shape and rotate the dough ball quickly in a circle. This will stretch the top of the dough and create tension, allowing it to rise up. Place the shaped rolls in a lined 9×13 pan.
  9. Cover and allow to rise for 45 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  10. Brush the rolls with beaten egg and sprinkle on the Everything Bagel seasoning mix.
  11. BAKE and ENJOY!

Can I freeze Dinner Rolls?

YES! Most breads freeze amazingly well and these rolls are no exception!

If you want to freeze these Everything Bagel Dinner Rolls, cool them completely after baking and then wrap well with cling film. Add a layer of foil to make sure there is no freezer burn!

Label with the name and date and freeze for up to three months!

I already have two batches in my freezer for Thanksgiving dinner! It makes it my prep before the holiday so much easier!

Tips for Making the Perfect Homemade Everything Bagel Dinner Rolls

  • This recipe is a variation of my Hokkaido Loaf bread, which is a Japanese Milk Bread. I used Oat Milk today but you can also dairy milk, almond milk or coconut milk.
  • Make sure that you milk is warm but not hot when you add it to the yeast. If the milk is over 110 degrees F, it will kill the yeast! If the milk is cold, it will take longer for your yeast to begin working.
  • To up the Everything Bagel flavor, you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons to the dough after the butter.
  • Be careful not to add too much flour on the countertop. Adding too much flour will cause your rolls to be dry.
  • Every oven is different so your rolls may take more or less time to bake. Keep an eye on them after about 20 minutes. A digital thermometer should read above 190F in the center.
