Pumpkins Eaters!

Well, just the seeds! LOL Our family isn't big into Halloween (I mean...why do the work for the candy? Just go buy a big ole bag at the store!) but we LOVE it when it's pumpkin time so we can roast the seeds! I hope y'all aren't throwing those seeds away. If you've never roasted seeds, it's super easy. Just wash them, dry them and lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. I use about 10 slivers of butter and sprinkle all over the top. Salt. We're VERY generous with the salt! Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until they look dry, but you have to make sure to stir about every 5 minutes. YUMMY!

Have a happy and safe Halloween! :-)

    I miss roasting pumpkin seeds....have you ever tried soaking them in water, soy sauce and salt for about 20 minutes and then bake them??? mmmm mmmm good....
    you can also soak them in a barbeque sauce, honey mustard etc....
