Butter Roasted Pumpkin Seeds #FoodieExtravaganza

Don't throw away those seeds when you make Jack O Lanterns with the kids this year.   Toss them with a little butter and salt and roast them to make a delicious crunchy treat.

 

Our Foodie Extravaganza group is celebrating all things Pumpkin this month.  Please join us......

This month's host is Lynda of Reviews, Chews & How-Tos.  Each month the members of this group get together to celebrate Wacky Food Holidays.  We find those holidays over at The Nibble. Of course, the big star of October is the Pumpkin.

We just finished up Pumpkin Week and I had a ton of fun recipes that I shared including this Stuffed Pumpkin. When I cleaned out the pumpkin to be stuffed I saved the seeds and roasted them as a special treat for our daughter, Marissa, who had mentioned how much she loved them.



Before I share this easy peasy recipe though, let's see what the others created with pumpkin this month.

  3. I do not believe I have ever eaten pumpkin seeds! But these sound really good! I probably won't buy a 'real' pumpkin this year!

    1. Homemade pumpkin seeds are the best Paula. If you aren't buying pumpkin you can do the same with any squash seeds.
