Everything Seasoning recipe

Mix together equal quantities of poppy seeds, sesame seeds, dried garlic, dried onion and salt in a small bowl. Transfer to an airtight jar.

Preparation method

  1. Final dough mixing:
    a. Add all the ingredients to the mixing bowl except the butter. In a spiral mixer, mix on first speed for 5 minutes in order to incorporate the ingredients.
    b. Add the butter in chunks.
    c. Finish mixing on second speed (intensive mix – gluten fully developed) for about 3 minutes.  The dough should be elastic and firm, with full gluten development.
    d. Desired dough temperature: 75 F to 77 F.
  2. Bulk fermentation: 4 hours.
  3. Dividing and shaping:
    a. Divide the dough into 100 g rolls.
    b. Pre-shape lightly into rounds and place on a lightly floured work surface, seams down.
    c. Cover the rounds with plastic.
    d. When the dough has relaxed sufficiently (1/2 hour), shape into bagels and place on parchment-lined sheet pans.
  4. Boil in simmering water for 90 seconds on each side and place on parchment-lined sheet pans.
  5. Egg wash and top with Everything Seasoning.
  6. Baking: Bake at 400 F for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown on top and bottom.
