Seasoned Squash Seeds
I’ve seen all the pumpkin seed recipes floating around the internet…not doubt with the holidays creeping up. Actually….is it me…or has Christmas started coming at Mother’s Day? Seriously? Could we get the 4th of July out of the way first?
Anyway….I don’t think there’s anyone that likes pumpkin seeds more than I. Strange though….because I despise pumpkins (Is that un-American?) I really don’t like it any way I’ve ever had it. There is NO amount of sugar…salt or cinnamon to cover up the fact that I’m eating a gourd…and it’s not suppose to be in a pie shell.lol I LOVE squash though….in almost every way you can dream up fixing them.
This recipe works for both pumpkin and squash seeds…so….again….a TOOFER!!! lol
Now….this recipe isn’t an exact science and all the amounts are variable. I guess the only thing I can say….is just mix it till there is enough to completely coat your seeds….and I’ve fixed seeds with out all of the ingredients but the salt…and they are still good. So…what I’m saying is: If you don’t like any of these ingredients….leave it out…it won’t destroy your seeds….they just won’t be mine! 🙂
What you’ll need:
garlic salt to taste….you could use regular salt if you don’t like garlic salt…..although….I think there’s something wrong with you if you don’t! LOL
garlic cloves….peeled and coarsely chopped. I’d say an average clove should be cut into about 6-8 pieces.
brisket seasoning about the same amount as the butter.
Pre-heat the oven to 350
Clean all the seeds out of the the squash/pumpkin….and remove the pulp.
Mix the butter and brisket seasoning in a small microwavable bowl…large enough that when the seeds are added….they fit…..but don’t put them in yet. Pop it in the microwave a few seconds….or long enough to melt the butter.
When it’s melted, add your seeds and garlic pieces. Coat the seeds really well and pour out on a baking sheet…I cover mine in foil….it kinda sticks. Pour the butter mix out with the seeds….it’ll just cook around and with the seeds. Sprinkle with garlic salt.
Bake for 10-15 min. until golden brown.
They don’t look like much….but I promise…they won’t last much longer than it takes to get them off the pan! YUUUUUUMMMMMO!!!
