Smoky Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Bacon makes everything better, and this recipe is no exception. Cayenne adds heat; brown sugar, a little sweetness. Might as well make several batches at once — you’re going to like these.

1 cup

  1. Cut open a pumpkin and use a strong metal spoon to scrape the insides and scoop out the seeds. Place the pumpkin seeds in a colander and run under water to rinse and separate the seeds from the pulp. Spread the clean seeds on a baking sheet or cutting board and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease it with cooking spray.
  3. In a bowl, toss the seeds with the melted fat and coat evenly with paprika, cayenne, brown sugar and salt.
  4. Spread the seeds out over the baking sheet in a single layer and bake on the top rack for about 20 minutes, or until they’re crispy and light golden brown. Stir the seeds every now and then while baking so that they roast evenly.
