After creating our jack-o-lanterns I thought it would be fun to toast the pumpkin seeds.
I've never done this before, so I searched online for a recipe. I took the recipe I found and kind of made it my own. I'll share my version of the recipe below.
Here you see me seperating the seeds from the gooey part of the pumpkin
The seeds all washed and cleaned ... ready for toasting
Yummmmmmmm ... they are soooo good!
Toasting Pumpkin Seeds ... Missy's version:
Seperate pumpkin seeds from the gooey part of the pumpkin
Wash the pumpkin seeds
Mix one egg white with 1/2 cup sugar (I used Splenda) and salt.
Add pumpkin seeds to mixture
Pour mixture into collander to drain excess egg white
Arrange on a cookie sheet in a single layer
Cook at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes ... after about 8 minutes I stirred them around
After baking sprinkle with more sugar (Splenda) and salt to taste
There are probably 1000's of recipes out there ... but because this was my first time I decided to do the easiest version I could find. Next year I may try a savory recipe. Do you have a wonderful recipe for toasting pumpkin seeds?
If so ... please share!
