I know, I know… Halloween is over and most people have already thrown their seeds out by now, but in case you haven’t, here is a great “recipe”. I’m using quotes because it’s really just seeds and seasoning. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Well, no lemon, but… you get it. I adapted this recipe from one I found over at Food.com.
- Pumpkin seeds
- Olive oil
- Seasoning Salt
- Garlic Powder
- After removing seeds from the pumpkin, make sure all pumpkin slime and chunks are removed.
- Rinse the seeds in a strainer thoroughly and allow to dry overnight on wax paper. Change the wax paper after 24 hours and allow to dry on a new sheet of wax paper for an additional 24 hours or until completely dry.
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Toss the seeds in a bowl with olive oil. Use enough oil to very lightly coat the seeds. The seasoning will stick well with very little oil.
- Add salt, seasoning salt, and garlic powder to taste. Other seasonings may be used to create different flavors.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add seasoned pumpkin seeds to baking sheet.
- Bake seeds for approximately 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until golden brown.
