Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipes… and a Little Fall Decor

Roasted pumpkin seeds are crunchy, delicious and easy to make. Not to mention you can spice them up anyway you would like. I just love pumpkin seeds, so every fall I bake my heart out to make the perfect roasted pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are not the only benefit of gutting out a pumpkin… lets use the leftover pumpkins to create some beautiful fall decor.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • Tablespoon melted butter
  • 2 teaspoon garlic salt (additional if desired)
  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Remove seeds from your pumpkin and place in a colander. Rinse with water, removing as much of the pumpkin guts as you can.
  2. Soak for 24 hours in salted water.
  3. Dry the seeds out for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 275 F degrees.  Spray a clean baking sheet with cooking spray. (I bake them at a lower temperature because they will not be completely dry and we don’t want to burn them).
  5. Next, toss seeds in a bowl with the melted butter and garlic salt. Spread the seeds on the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 40 to 60 minutes or until golden brown, stirring every 10 minutes. About 30 minutes into cooking sprinkle the parmesan on while continuing to stir every 10 minutes.
  6. Taste and season with additional garlic salt if desired.
