Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

My Dad would make pumpkin seeds for us every year.  I would watch him as he sat by the kitchen table, carving the pumpkin and scooping out the seeds.  It was a family tradition.

These are so easy to make and it only takes 10-12 minutes in the oven.  They come out a light golden brown and ready to serve.  Sometimes I would peel them and other times I would just eat them with the seed shell on.  In my opinion, the seed shells from the smaller sugar pumpkins are not as thick and easier to eat, but I do prefer eating just the seeds.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Kosher Salt
Directions
  • Step 1 Scoop out the seeds from any pumpkin.
  • Step 2 Place them in a colander.
  • Step 3 Wash off any pumpkin flesh that may still be on the seeds.
  • Step 4 Let dry or pat dry with a paper towel.  They will stick to the paper towel, but they easily fall off into a bowl.
  • Step 5 In a small bowl, toss the pumpkin seeds in the olive oil.
  • Step 6 Evenly spread them on a baking sheet lined with either a silpat or parchment paper.
  • Step 7 Sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • Step 8 Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes or until they lightly toasted. Watch closely so they do not burn.

    Note:  I use a sugar pumpkin for this.
