This classic mix of poppy and sesame seeds, onion, garlic and salt works with, well, just about everything. You can add it to soft breadsticks to replicate that authentic bagel flavor, but we'd recommend it in any number of applications: on a baked potato, coating a chicken breast, topping a salad, mixed into a pasta dish, sprinkled over potato pancakes... the options are endless.
