Garlic Parmesan Pumpkin Seeds Recipe
You guys, I’m telling you these garlic parmesan seeds are SOOOOO good! Our cinnamon maple seeds are tasty too, but the savory flavor combination in these with the garlic powder and the grated parmesan is just divine. To start the pumpkin seed making process, we always save the seeds from our annual Halloween pumpkin carving party. Once you take all the “pumpkin guts” and seeds out of the pumpkin, you’ll wash the seeds and I recommend drying them first to get them nice and crunchy. You can spread the clean seeds onto parchment-lined baking sheets and leave them out overnight to dry. Or you can put them in a warm oven to dry for a few hours (for these, the oven was turned up to 275 & then shut off. In went the seeds, where they sat for most of the day stirring just a couple times). Once they’re dry, then start the recipe. And enjoy your savory, crunchy snack!
- 2.5 C fresh dried pumpkin seeds
- 2.5 TBSP melted butter
- 4 TBSP grated Parmesan
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- Put the dried seeds in a bowl and pour the melted butter over the seeds. Add cheese and garlic powder. Stir to coat well.
- Spread the seeds onto lined (parchment or foil) baking sheets.
- Bake at 325 for 30-45 mins (or until the seeds look golden brown), stirring/tossing seeds every 10 minutes to prevent burning.
- Store the seeds in an airtight container at room temperature.
YUM! So, plan to make these pumpkin seeds this fall. And be sure to pick up some DASANI® Sparkling so you can enter to win the awesome trip! You can find everything you need at a local Kroger or Kroger banner store near you!
Happy Fall Adventuring!
