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 👻
