🍴Serving Ideas

Now that you’ve made this delicious everything bagel dip let’s chat about some creative ways to serve it.

  • Veggie delight: I like to serve my everything bagel dip with an array of fresh veggies. Sliced cucumbers, bell peppers, carrot sticks, and cherry tomatoes are colorful and provide a crisp contrast to the creamy dip.
  • Chip away: Sometimes, there’s nothing like the crunch of a chip. Whether it’s sweet potato chips, pita chips, tortilla chips, or bagel chips, this dip makes them irresistible.
  • Pretzel twist: For a fun twist, try pretzels! Both pretzel sticks and pretzel crisps work great and add a delightful crunch.
  • Crackers: A selection of crackers from buttery to whole grain adds variety in both flavor and texture that guests love.

These are just a few suggestions, but honestly, this everything bagel dip is so versatile that it can be paired with almost anything. Experiment with your family’s favorite snacks, and let me know how it goes!

🥯Flavor Variations

Experiment with your everything bagel dip to keep things fresh. Here are some suggestions:

  • Spicy: Add a kick with diced jalapeños or a teaspoon of hot sauce.
  • Herby: Mix in fresh chives or dill for a refreshing herbal note.
  • Citrusy: A teaspoon of lemon zest can bring the dip a bright and tangy dimension.
  • Cheesy: Incorporate a half cup of shredded cheddar or Gruyère for a gooey, cheesy variation.

💭Storing Your Everything Bagel Dip

If you have leftovers, refrigerate your dip in an airtight container. It’ll last for up to a week. I don’t recommend freezing it since it will affect the texture.

⭐Tips for an Unbeatable Dip

Be sure to check out the step by step instructions

  • This isn’t one of those dips you can whip up 10 minutes before your guests arrive. It benefits from an hour in the fridge for all the flavors to meld together.
  • Stirring the dip together will be much easier if you first let the cream cheese soften at room temperature.

📝FAQ

Can I use low-fat cream cheese?

Sure, you can. The full-fat cream cheese will give you a richer flavor and creamier texture. But I get it; we’re all trying to make healthier choices. So, go ahead with the low-fat version.

I don’t have everything bagel seasoning. Can I still make the dip?

Absolutely! You can make your own everything bagel seasoning at home. All you need is poppy seeds, white sesame seeds, dried garlic, dried onion, and salt.

Can I make this dip ahead of time?

Yes, and you should! This dip tastes best when it’s had time to let the flavors meld together. It’s the perfect party appetizer for your next gathering.
