Savory Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

With fall in full swing and Halloween around the corner, we always have lots of squash and/or pumpkins around. Whether you are carving a jack-o-lantern or making a pumpkin pie, there are leftover winter pumpkin seeds which can be turned into delicious, savory roasted snacks!

- pumpkin seeds (or any winter squash seeds such as my personal favorite: acorn squash)
- olive oil
- salt, pepper
- my seasoning blend: garlic powder, paprika, chipotle powder, worchestire sauce

1) Rinse seeds under water and remove any squash pulp. Pat dry.

2) Add olive oil.

3) Add seasoning blend. Mix well. Spread seasoned seeds on a baking sheet.

4) Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Halfway through, move seeds around so they don't stick. Let cool and enjoy!

And in case you were curious, here is our jack-o-lantern this year: pumpkin 'pi' :)
