There is a breakfast and brunch restaurant in Louisville called Wild Eggs, and while they serve lots of delicious food, I can't ever go there and not get an Everything Muffin. These muffins are flavored with everything bagel seasoning, and are salty-sweet baked gloriousness. Now that I don’t live in Louisville, I had to figure out how I could have these anytime I wanted. And as it turns out, this might be the easiest muffin recipe ever! This epic breakfast muffin takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish and will be the most perfect start to your morning!
Why this recipe works
Everything bagel seasoning is such a versatile seasoning. It's delicious on so much more than just bagels! It's flavorful and a little bit salty which balances perfectly with the slight sweetness of a more basic muffin. And on top of how delicious they are, these Everything Muffins are so incredibly easy to make from scratch that they will quickly become a go-to breakfast or the best snack!
Ingredients and notes
Sugar - The sugar in this flavorful muffin recipe not only balances out the saltiness of the seasoning, but sugar also contributes to the texture of these muffins. Sugar helps contribute to the rise of muffins, as well as to the browning and moistness. If you reduce or eliminate the sugar, the result will likely be a dense, dry muffin.
Everything Seasoning - This seasoning is the flavor of these mouthwatering morning muffins. The first time I made these I used the Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning, but now there are so many brands of everything seasoning so choose your favorite to make this Everything Muffin recipe, or you could even make your own!
Milk - Milk is one of the key liquids in this easy breakfast recipe. Cream or even half and half can be used if you don't have milk, however any milk with flavor such as almond milk will be noticeable in this everything seasoning muffin recipe so you'll likely want to avoid milk products that have their own flavor.
How to make this recipe
Preheat the oven to 375 F and spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray.
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and everything seasoning in a mixing bowl, then create a hole in the center of the dry ingredients.
Pour the melted butter, milk, and eggs into the hole at the center of the dry ingredients.
Stir until the dry ingredients are just moistened.
Divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups.
Bake 15-18 minutes. The muffins will be golden brown on the tops and sides.
Cool in the muffin pan for 5 minutes, then remove and place on a wire rack to cool completely (or enjoy warm!)
Each one may differ slightly depending on the brand or the recipe, but the basic seasonings that make up this blend are salt, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic, and onion.
Absolutely! If you make these scrumptious salty-sweet morning treats in advance, let them cool completely and then store them in an airtight container at room temperature. They will last 1-2 weeks if they haven't all been devoured before then!
Make more muffins!!! But if you're looking for some other uses, I personally love it on my avocado toast. It's also delicious on popcorn, on potatoes in all forms, and so much more. You really can't go wrong!
Tips & Tricks
- Be careful to not overmix the batter. Mixing until the batter is just moistened will ensure a moist and perfectly textured muffin!
- I always try to make the hole in the dry ingredients big enough to hold the wet ingredients, but it's fine if the wet ingredients overflow out of the well when you add them!
- Each brand or recipe for everything seasoning is different. Some may be saltier than others, some may be more garlicky than others, etc. You may have to adjust the amount of the seasoning added to the muffins based on the brand or recipe of seasoning you choose. The best way to control the flavor is to make your own seasoning, but I like to keep things as easy as possible so I always use store-bought!

It's a pretty good recreation of the muffins. The only thing I would change is the sugar content. This seems too sweet. Maybe only half a cup would be best.
I used a mix of half heavy cream and half whole milk but I don't know if it really added anything. I know that my mixture was a lot dryer, like a wet bread dough, when I filled the molds than the pictures but they came out great.
I only baked it at 350 for 25 minutes because my oven is different.
I'm so glad they worked out for you, Ray! Thanks for sharing your suggestions!

I just made a double batch of these (using jumbo muffin tins) for a post-Derby brunch. Thank you, Liz, this recipe is perfect! Everyone loved these muffins!
I'm so so happy to hear that, Lin! I hope you had a happy Derby and I'm so very glad you enjoyed!!
These are amazing little muffins. I made them as teacher gifts with the note “thank you for everything!” So easy and delicious.
I love this idea!! They really do make such great gifts!
These were pretty good. Mine looked different than the pictures. I only used half a cup of sugar because I thought 3/4 would be too sweet. My mixture looked more like biscuit/scone dough than muffin mixture, and they turned out to have the texture of scones as well. I think I would add more milk next time. I also used the trader Joe's bagel seasoning and it's really heavy on the salt and onion powder so I also felt like I should have cut back on that. It would be great to have a version with homemade seasoning to have greater control over the flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
I'm so glad you tried them, but I'm sorry you had some issues with them! Unfortunately, I think both issues are due to the reduction in sugar. Sugar serves more purposes than just sweetening in baked goods, including helping baked goods retain their moisture so that could be why they came out a bit drier. Sweetness also balances out saltiness and that balance will be off if the sugar is reduced, resulting in a saltier muffin. These are intended to have a slight sweetness to them, so if you're looking for muffins that aren't sweet, the recipe will most likely need adjustments beyond just the sugar. I hope this helps, and I hope you'll try this recipe again! And thank you for the great suggestion of a homemade seasoning. I will see what I can come up with!
I love these muffins from Wild Eggs and was so excited to find a copycat recipe, especially one that was so spot on. It's such a nice alternative to sweet muffins. Since each brand of everything seasoning is different I usually add it slowly and give it a taste test to see how much more it needs before dumping the full amount. Thanks for the excellent recipe!
Thanks so much, Tory! This is such a great tip - some of the brands can definitely be quite salty in which case it can be a bit much to add the full amount. This is such a great way to do it!!
If I wanted to bake these as mini muffins, how should I adjust the baking time/temp?
Liz Pollio says
I haven't tested them as mini muffins, but I would suggest starting to check them around 7-10 minutes in. They can always go longer if they're not yet done, but they can't be uncooked so I err on the side of checking them sooner!
