Roasted pumpkin seeds

We are all such big fans of pumpkin seeds. Actually this was the first year when my kids remembered them from last year and asked if we could make them out of our own pumpkins that we carved for Halloween. I saved the seeds with all the goo in the fridge and few days after trick-or-treating we finally got to make one of our favorite treats.

For salty seeds we use:
garlic salt 
3 tablespoons of melted butter
Preheat your oven for 300 degrees

Kids helped separating the seeds from the goo. They did a great job!

After you separate the seeds, rinse them under cold water, sprinkle them with garlic salt, and pour the melted butter over that.

I had the kids help me spread the spiced seeds on a cookie sheet.

I left them roast in the oven for 15 minutes, then I pulled them out, mixed them, and put them back for another 10 minutes. I kept checking on them every 5 minutes to make sure they don't burn.

Let it cool and dry and then place in a bowl or cute container. 

And what did I do with all the goo? Well, I put that on a cookie sheet, slid it in the oven, let it bake for 30 minutes on 350 degrees and...

...fed it to the girls for breakfast!
