Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

This probably would have been more useful before Halloween, but I was busy. I threw a party, had to get my costume together, and I was sick for a week leading up to Halloween (hence, lots of reading). I’m sure you guys can use this next year, but I’ll forget to post it by then, so here you go. How did I carve my pumpkin? I’m glad you asked! I love Batman so much, I was hoping to lure him to my house with this Bat-signal pumpkin, but, sadly, it didn’t work. Next year I’ll get a bigger pumpkin.

This is two pumpkins worth of seeds. Spread them out on a cookie sheet, sprinkle them (liberally) with garlic salt, and then drizzle them with olive oil. This helps them soak up the garlic salt flavor and get crispy without drying out. Mix it all around with your hand, and put the pan in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. Check them fairly frequently to make sure they get to your desired level of crispness. You can add some salt when they’re done cooking if you need to.

These are a great snack to eat while watching old horror movies, which is of course required on Halloween!

    How could you not put curry powder on these? Shocking! 😛

      Hubby is the one who loves curry on everything. I have made them with chili powder which is good, but these were also for sharing with people who don’t like spicy stuff.
