In advance of any carving festivities, I had to make sure I was prepared with a great seed . You can’t let all of those go to waste after all! I found not one, but two variations I had to try!

Check out these delicious savory/sweet pumpkin seed recipes and let me know how you like to roast your pumpkin seeds in the comments!


Sweet & Spicy Pumpkin Seeds


1 egg white
1/4 cup natural cane sugar
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
scant 1/2 teaspoon fine grained sea salt
1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds


Preheat oven to 375.

In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the egg white, sugar, cayenne and salt.

Add the pumpkin seeds and toss well. Strain the excess egg white and place seeds in a single layer across a baking sheet.

Bake for about 12 minutes or until seeds are golden.

Sprinkle with a bit more sugar and cayenne pepper and salt to taste!


Cinnamon-Sugar Roasted Pumpkin Seeds


1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a bowl, toss to coat the seeds with olive oil. Add sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Spread seeds in an even layer on a greased baking sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes and stir while baking for the perfect golden brown seeds!
