Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

When my kids were younger and we were still doing the jack o'lanterns one of the best things about it was that there would be a snack with it because we would roast the seeds. We eventually tried different flavors and one of our favorites was just to melt a few teaspoons butter, put that in the bowl of cleaned seeds, then add a good healthy sprinkling of garlic powder and several shakes from the salt shaker. Roast them at 350 degrees until they are lightly brown turning them once. Then another sprinkling of salt.

Here are some other variations I found in our local paper. Perhaps we will try one of these next time.

Mole Spiced

Add these ingredients to your seeds before roasting:

3 T. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 T. cocoa
1 T. finely ground coffee(not instant)
2 T butter, melted
1/2 tsp. coarse salt

Sweet and Salty

2 T. melted butter
3 T. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. coarse salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Spicy Herbed

1/2 T. onion powder
2 T. sesame oil
