Garlicky Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin Carving for Halloween

Pumpkin carving and seed roasting for HalloweenA few seasons ago we grew pumpkins and had the most fun in the fall making Garlicky Pumpkin Seeds after we had carved our jack-o-lanterns. This is a great treat recipe for your pumpkin carving buddies.

First we carefully cut open the pumpkin for carving, then dug out the “guts” and seeds with a large spoon. Next we separated the seeds and dried them on a newspaper or towel. After they are dried, you can start the roasting process (see recipe below).


Garlicky Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Ingredients –

  • 3 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

  2. Combine the ingredients with the pumpkin seeds. Place in shallow baking dish.
