Deliciously Easy Pumpkin Seeds 4 Ways

Halloween is basically the best time of the year, because it’s the most fall of all the holidays (some may say, but what about Thanksgiving??? But I feel like Halloween is the celebration of fall while Thanksgiving is a celebration of the end of fall). This weekend, for the first time in years, we decided to carve pumpkins. Which of course means plenty of pumpkin seeds.
Pumpkins!

Carving pumpkins was so much fun! and when we were finished we were left with just a mound of pumpkin guts. So naturally I spent the hour necessary to pick through the mound of pumpkin guts to pick out all the seeds and roast them up 4 ways.

Today’s offerings for you are Honey Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, Pumpkin Pie Pumpkin Seeds, Smoked Paprika Pumpkin Seeds, and Maple Bacon Pumpkin Seeds (yes these are as amazing as they sound)

The think I love about pumpkin seeds is it’s kind of just relaxing to sit there and separate them from the goop. Just play music or have your kids help you, and you can stop whenever you want. You get about a cup of seeds per pumpkin, so if you only want to pick through one, you get plenty of seeds.

Then you just soak the seeds in warm water to clean the gunk off and toss them in butter and spices then roast. Super easy

Plus super delicious. You can eat them straight, or put them on salads or in trail mix, whatever. Totally versatile.
