The best part about Halloween... the leftover pumpkin seeds from the jack-o-lantern! Yum! Yum! Take a look at my beautiful culinary creations! Roasted pumpkin seeds are extremely easy to prepare--so easy, in fact, a complete buffoon like ME was able to make them!
I used these ingredients for spices. Chopped garlic, hot sauce, salt, pepper, greek cavender seasoning, chili powder, butter, red chili pepper flakes and cajun seasoning. As you can see, I like my seeds SPICY! You can just use salt and pepper for seasoning if you want--just don't rinse the pumpkin guts off the seeds!

Line your baking sheet with wax paper. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Melt your butter with the chopped garlic and or additional seasonings in the microwave and then pour over the seeds on the baking sheet. Roast the raw seeds and butter mixture for 45 minutes, stirring every 15min or so. Done.
Pumpkin seeds are very nutritious! They make for an excellent seasonal snack. :)
