It is Halloween weekend! Where did October go? One of our favorite family Halloween traditions is roasting pumpkin seeds. It’s the perfect treat after spending hours gutting, carving and crafting the perfect jack o lantern face.
Here is a quick recipe to roast the perfect pumpkin seeds. My family likes them plainly salted but the seasoning choices are endless! Enjoy and have a safe and spooky Halloween! 🎃👻👹
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Rinse pumpkin seeds off in a colander
It’s okay to leave some strings and pulp on the seeds (it adds flavor) clean off any chunks.
Toss pumpkin seeds in a bowl with the 2 Tbs of melted butter, vegetable oil or olive oil.
Pour and spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Sprinkle on the seasonings of your choice. Try: Salt, Garlic Salt, Pepper, Cayenne Pepper (for a little heat), Cajun Seasoning, or Seasoning Salt. (We prefer regular salt and oilve oil)
Bake for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
Store leftover seeds in an air tight container.
