Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Decorating my house for fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Especially when I get to carve a pumpkin. It is such a fun family event. This year, I am even more excited to share this time with my daughter. I can't wait to see what she thinks of the pumpkin guts.

After carving your pumpkin this year, try roasting the pumpkin seeds. Not only is it a healthy treat, but it is another fun activity that you and your family can do together!

I've attached a recipe for roasting pumpkin seeds for you to try!

  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

  2. Mix together the margarine, salt, garlic salt, brown sugar, and soy sauce.

  3. Add in the Pumpkin seeds and stir around thoroughly.

  4. Place mixture in a shallow baking dish.
