Cinnamon & Sugar + Pizza Pumpkin Seeds!



This week's post is part of the #galpalholiday link-up hosted by Cristina from Cristina on Campus, Cathleen from Classy Cathleen, and Rachel Martin from Seashells And Sparkles! This month we're blogging all of our favorite fall and Halloween things! I'm here to share a couple delicious recipes for roasting pumpkin seeds! When you carve a pumpkin, it's an unwritten rule that you HAVE to bake the seeds! In the past, my family has just simply salted our seeds and thrown them in the oven. However, this year I took to Pinterest to find some other delicious recipes for pumpkin seeds! The best part? You probably already have everything you need for these recipes!



Prepping the seeds:

When you carve your pumpkin, spoon out all the strings and seeds and place them aside. As you go, remove as many strings as you can to make the process easier! One way to clean the seeds is to wash a hand full at a time. However, this method could prove to be time consuming for larger amounts. Another way would be place the seeds into a colander that's under running water to rinse and separate the seeds from everything else. Once the seeds are clean, you can continue with the instructions for the recipe you choose!

The oven must be preheated at 300 degrees for recipes. Makes a half cup of seeds per recipe.

Pizza Recipe

Ingredients:
Grated Parmesan
Brazil
Oregano
Salt
Garlic Powder
Olive oil
Raw seeds

Add the specified about of each ingredient into a bowl filled with half a cup of the cleaned seeds:
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Stir the ingredients. Continue the recipe by following the baking instructions.

Cinnamon & Sugar Recipe

Ingredients:
Olive oil
Cinnamon
Brown Sugar
Salt

Add the specified about of each ingredient into a bowl filled with half a cup of the cleaned seeds:
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon brown sugar
A pinch of salt

Stir the ingredients. Continue the recipe by following the baking instructions.

Baking Instructions:

Lay the seasoned seeds flatly on a pan covered with parchment paper. If needed, the seeds may overlap slightly. Place the pan in an oven heated at 300 degrees, for 20 minutes. Times may vary based on amount. I baked a total of four batches and it took closer to 30 minutes. Shift the seeds around on the pan every 5 to 10 minutes. Please note the brown sugar in the the Cinnamon and Sugar recipe has a tendency to burn. After the finished seeds cool, they're ready to go! I hope you like the recipes, and let me know what traditions you do for Halloween!

Also, here's the pumpkin that me and my boyfriend carved!
