When it comes to party appetizers, you can't go wrong with goat cheese balls. They're cheap, delicious, and easy to make. But instead of throwing on some pepper and calling it a day, take some inspiration from the everything bagel. This breakfast favorite has a way of making taste buds sing. Plus, the iconic spice blend can be re-created with ingredients from your own pantry. Here's how to make it happen.
