    We really liked these. The Worcestershire sauce added a unique taste. Our family didn't agree that these were the "Best Ever" and they won't replace our favorite recipe. But, they were really good!

    Thank you for posting this recipe. It is just like the one my parents made when I was a kid. I only have one exception: do not clean off any of the pulp and pumpkin "guts" from the seeds. Leave all of that on, mix with the other ingredients, and roast as directed. All that oooey-gooey turns into the most delicious, crispy savory treat. When I was a kid that was my favorite part to eat and it still is!

    I only used 1 teaspoon of salt and only baked 1 hour and 30 minutes. I had dried my seeds overnight so maybe that's why they didn't need 2 hours. Great flavor and so easy to make!


I love to cook exciting, exotic recipes for me and my hubby. I also love to go out to eat, mostly at ethnic restaurants. Spicy food is my favorite, and I'm always looking for new vegetarian recipes, since I've been a vegetarian since I was a kid.
