Halloween Roasted Pumpkin Seeds 2 Ways- Bacon and Cinnamon Sugar


  • Cleaned pumpkin seeds from a medium-large size pumpkin
  • Olive oil for tossing
  • Bacon Salt we found ours at World Market but you can also find on Amazon
  • Cinnamon-Sugar I love my grinder from Trader Joe's


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Remove seeds from pumpkin and separate any "pumpkin guts", as my husband calls them, from the bowl of seeds. I then put seeds in a strainer and rinse to clean them again.
  • Pat dry with paper towels then spread seeds out on a lined baking sheet.
  • Toss seeds with a small amount of olive oil to coat (1-2 tsp).
  • Since I did two flavors I added a crumbled aluminum foil strip in the middle of the pan to separate the flavors.
  • Then sprinkle on your seasonings. I used savory Bacon Salt and sweet Cinnamon Sugar. Toss to coat then pop in the oven for 20-30 minutes.
  • Stir every 10 minutes and add additional seasoning if you would like.
  • If you like your seeds somewhat soft and chewy bake for 20 minutes. If you like crispy, crunchy seeds (we do!) bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, cool slightly and serve or store in a sealed container for snacking later on!
