The Ultimate Pumpkin Seed Recipe

This is a fun snack to make with your kids after carving the Jack-o-Lantern for Halloween night.


Traditional:
Take your pumpkinseeds and wash off as much of the excess fiber you can and pat them dry with a paper or cloth towel.
On a baking sheet, grease the pan with salted butter and spread the seeds out onto the pan trying not to have them stacked on top of each other.
In a pre-heated 300-degree oven, bake for about 40 minutes stirring occasionally so they won't stick or burn. You know they are done when they turn a golden brown. If they aren't golden brown yet, roast them a little longer. Add salt to taste and let them cool.


Variation:
In a mixing bowl, add the seeds with a tablespoon or two of good olive oil and maybe some seasoning salt and mix together.


Hot-n-Spicy:
After they come out of the oven, add some chili powder or Cajun seasonings to spice it all up. Set aside to cool.


Sweet:
After they come out of the oven, set aside to cool. In a plastic storage bag add some sugar and cinnamon. Brush a little water or melted butter on the seeds and put the seeds into the bag and shake them up. Add just enough sugar and cinnamon to lightly coat the seeds so you don't have lots of extra sugar.


Yummy!
