I made a a stuffed pumpkin tonight and staring at the pile of seeds I said "I wonder if recipezaar has a pumpkin seed recipe..." This one caught my eye and lucky it did because it was great! I actually melted the butter and spices in a bowl, stirred in the seeds and spread them out on a cookie sheet. Couldn't be easier!
I made this recipe with the seeds of one medium butternut squash. loved the texture of these seeds. I melted the butter first, added the seeds & tossed then added the spices and salt then tossed again. I lightly sprayed the cookie sheet I used with avacado oil for extra assurance they wouldn't stick to anything. I put my oven at 350F then turned it down to 300F after the first minute. I moved them around at the 16 minute point (including the minute at 350F) then left them in for another 15 minutes. I liked the flavor but it was too salty for my taste. I will try halving the salt the next time I make these.
