I used to just throw some salt and oil on my pumpkin seeds every year. Then a few years ago, I came across a recipe that used these ingredients. I’ve tweaked the recipe quite a bit based on what I’ve learned from making Chex mix from my mom’s old old recipe of it. Newer recipes use WAY less butter and seasoned salt. Same here. I pumped up the seasonings and the butter. Voila! Fantastic pumpkin seeds people will actually want to eat!

Print Recipe for Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
For every 2 cups of pumpkin seeds:
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 – 3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt (to taste)
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (135 degrees C).
- Combine the butter, seasoned salt, garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce and pumpkin seeds. Mix thoroughly and place in shallow baking dish. I use rimmed baking sheet so the seeds can spread out into a nice thin layer.
- Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring every 15-20 minutes – until seeds are crunchy and golden brown.
