Say hello to your new addiction. May I present Everything Bagel hummus? The name says it all. Onion flakes, garlic powder, and poppy and sesame seeds on top of your own or store-bought hummus. Five minutes to make, an hour to enjoy, a lifetime to anticipate. How many things can you say that about?
How I never thought to put Everything Bagel seasoning on top of hummus is beyond me. I eat hummus by the bucketloads, truly. And, as you know, I put Everything Bagel seasoning on, well, as its name suggests, everything. These two are a match made in culinary nirvana. The onion, garlic, poppy seeds, and sesame seeds are a natural combo for the hummus.
The great thing about this recipe is it takes all of five minutes to throw together. (Ok, ok. Fifteen if you’re making your own hummus.) And because it is hummus, you can serve so many things alongside it: flatbread, crackers, tomato and cuke salad, deviled eggs, falafel. You can even throw it together when you have unexpected guests–and who isn’t yearning for unexpected guests these days? It can be a meal unto itself or a snack while you’re bingeing HBO’s The White Lotus.

Recipe Testers’ Reviews
This Everything Bagel hummus was a huge hit with my family! Every time I walk past the fridge I can’t help reaching in and sampling it again and again. I used a spicy Everything Bagel seasoning that I had on hand and store-bought hummus. I found that 2 1/2 tablespoons of the seasoning and 1 tablespoon oil was perfect.
As my better half loves marmite, this was right up her alley, but I felt it was a little too salty using a pre-made Everything Bagel seasoning mix with store-bought hummus. Next time I make it, I’ll use homemade hummus and omit the salt. I topped my Everything Bagel hummus with just a drizzle of olive oil.
To enjoy this, I quickly grilled a few shrimp, tossed it on a baguette slathered with Everything Bagel hummus and a few slices of seedless cucumber. Yum.
