Flashback Friday: Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!

In honor of Halloween next week, I'm doing a flash back post. No, I'm not going to recap my Halloween costumes past...I already did that this week. Instead, I'm going to flashback to a post I wrote back in 2011. My blog was a lot smaller back then and I had really just found the blogging community that fall. For some reason, this particular post has blown up on Pinterest in the past week! Since Pinterest finds it useful, I thought my lovely readers and friends would appreciate it to. So here is a re-post of my Roasted Pumpkin Seeds! Just in time for you to carve your pumpkins and pick the goopy seeds out!

Sweet, salty and delicious similar to kettle corn

  • 1 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of butter
  • 1 tbsp of sugar and a dash of salt
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Mix seeds, butter and sugar together in a bowl. Spread out along a foil wrapped baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt then bake for 25 minutes, let cool and enjoy!

So if you're going to carve a pumpkin this weekend, don't just throw away the seeds! Scoop 'em out, separate them from the goo, wash them off and prep them for a tasty treat!

Have a wonderful weekend y'all! I'm heading into a whirlwind of Aggie footballing and half marathoning!
