Gourmet Spicy Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

Preheat oven to 300 degrees


1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds
2 teaspoons melted butter or oil (olive oil is what I prefer)
salt to taste (we like lots of salt)

For the fun, optional part: (pick one or a few of the below variations that would go well together)

garlic powder or garlic salt
seasoned salt
black pepper (cracked is best)
salt free seasoning blend, such as Mrs. Dash brand
cayenne pepper
Cajun seasoning
chili powder
Italian seasoning combo
grated fresh Parmesan


Clean off any major chunks of pumpkin off seeds. Its not necessary to get them perfect.

In a bowl with the melted butter or oil and seasonings of your choice, toss the seeds. Spread seeds in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet. (or spray with cooking spray is what I prefer).

Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Let cool

Serve and Enjoy
