Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!

This is my fav time of year! The holiday season always brings me so much joy. Now that Halloween is here pumpkin picking, carving, and roasting seeds is in full swing and I am ready. I am a pumpkin seed addict and I must get several pumpkins a year to roast its seeds, and of course have fun carving them with our kids.

Last year was the first year I decided to try some other pumpkin seed recipes instead of just the the traditional #oldskool recipe I’ve been using and eating since I can remember! I love trying new things and although my husband hates it it’s just too damn bad and he must participate. Luckily this year I decided to go with the original salted pumpkin seeds and ranch flavored which are delicious and flavorful!

Here are the recipes I use for ranch and original. It’s very simple and I usually just do it by eye instead of measuring. It’s kinda hard to mess up! Or at least I think it is 😊 There’s tons of seasonings you can use from garlic to ranch to BBQ to chili powder! Either way they are delicious and good for you!

Original Pumpkin seeds

2 cups of pumpkin seeds

1tbs of olive oil/butter

1/2tsp of kosher salt/salt

Ranch Pumpkin seeds

2 cups of Pumkin seeds

1tbs olive oil

1tsp ranch dried seasoning-sprinkle some more while cooking (optional)

salt to taste

Once they are seasoned just throw them in a pan with some tin foil and pop it in the oven!

I have seen a lot of different recipes, instructions and temp suggestions to use when you look online. I say just go with your gut. I’ve made mine from anywhere to 300-375 degrees.  The key is to watch them and take them out when they start to brown!

Good luck pumkin 🎃 seed eating and Happy Halloween  👻

My name is Nicole and I'm a stay at home mother of 3! I started this blog just for fun and have no idea what I'm doing but I love it! My son is 13 and my girls are going on 3 and 4 and just started school this year so I have some more time on my hands. They go full time and take a cute little yellow bus! I've also started going back to work part time for my brother. Thank God I work for family or I would've been fired 1000 times over 😄 Kudos to the moms that hold regular jobs with kids, there's always a holiday or sickness in my house that keeps someone home! I'm very excited to see where all this is going to take me. Maybe it's because I just like to run my mouth or have an opinion! Living in NYC turns you rough around the edges, lol. Thank you for liking, sharing, commenting, or just visiting. Suggestions are welcomed as I learn this process!
