Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
It's jack-o-lantern carving week! But wait! Don't toss out those pumpkin seeds! You can use them to make a delicious and easy snack! Toasted pumpkin seeds are one of our favorite parts about Halloween!
You can make Toasted Pumpkin Seeds right in the oven in all their buttery, salty glory in just a few minutes. Just remember to collect the seeds in a bowl while you're scraping out your pumpkin, then wash and rinse them in a colander.
If you have more than one pumpkin, you can adjust the recipe accordingly. We have three kids and three jack-o-lanterns at our house, so I triple the recipe.

I love roasting our own pumpkin seeds. I never thought about doing it with butter! We usually soak ours in salt water and then roast them. We like ours salty, too.
