The kids will love this variation on roasted pumpkin seeds...they're like cinnamon toast!!!
Ingredient: pumpkin seeds
These pumpkin seeds certainly aren't the ones you'll remember from the days roasting pumpkin seeds with mom or grandma when you were a kid...but they're sure to be a hit on game night with the grown ups! They're made with whiskey and bacon drippings!
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are a family tradition for a lot of families in the fall, especially around Halloween. If you carve Jack-0-Lanterns, why not clean off the seeds and roast up those seeds. But did you know you can do more than just put some melted butter and salt on them? One of my favorite variations is the Garlic Parmesan Pumpkin seeds, though you have to be careful...this variation is easy to burn. I do it almost every time for some reason. I always end up burning like a third of my seeds.
Halloween is a fun time of year and when you get together either with your family on the weekend around Halloween to play games, why not serve a healthy snack using the seeds from the pumpkins you probably carved? I remember my mom roasting the pumpkin seeds when I was a kid...what I didn't know is how much of a pain it is to clean those things off in order to roast them. But it's worth it.
