Fall Favorites 2009
A quick one.....but an important one......Roasted Pumpkin Seeds. It's the best part of carving a pumpkin!
I look forward to these all year long......such a yummy, slightly nutty, salty treat!
1 1/2 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds
2 teaspoons butter, melted
1 pinch salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Toss seeds in a bowl with the melted butter and salt.
Spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown; stir occasionally.
I like the good old-fashioned variety, but you can use all sorts of seasonings. A few:
Lawry's Seasoned Salt
Think popcorn......most gourmet popcorn seasonings work for pumpkin seeds, too.
We are not carving until Thursday, so I'm still 2 days away from this savory goodness. Can't wait!
