Mixing Up The Traditional Roasted Pumpkin Seed Recipe

Roasted pumpkin seeds are fun to make, addictive to eat and are packed full of fiber. This year I thought I would experiment with the spice mixes. Instead of toasting the seeds in the oven at 300 degrees, this year I also tried toasting them on the stove top in a little bit of canola oil.  I then transferred each batch to a paper towel lined plate and tried these three toppings. Double or triple these spice mixes as needed for your batch size.

Smoked Paprika and Onion Powder

Mix together 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika and 1/4 teaspoon onion powder. Sprinkle liberally onto the still-hot pumpkin seeds. 

Parmesan, Garlic Powder and Basil

Mix together 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese (the grated kind, not shaved), 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon dried basil. Sprinkle liberally onto the still-hot pumpkin seeds. 

Cinnamon Sugar and Salt

Mix 1 tablespoon sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Sprinkle liberally on the still-hot pumpkin seeds.

I have to admit that the cinnamon sugar mix was my favorite, but that may just be because I have the palate of a 4 year old. The other mixes were delicious and would be great to put out in a bowl for a Halloween party.

Do you roast pumpkin seeds?

I don't mess with pumpkin seeds.  They're not something we're crazy about.

We love pumpkin seeds.

I make a few batches because we all like them a little different

My husband likes cinammon
My kids like them with just sea salt
I like then with a little sea salt, cracked black pepper.
I make then with a little Parmesan and Ceyanne last year and that was a big hit

I am the only one in my house who eats them. 

I might try the garlic one.

Those sound good!  We do roast them.  Usually with butter and sea salt.

It was good. Basil and Parmesan was good too. I need to get one more pumpkin to make all the seeds :))
