don't chuck the seeds!

After prepping the pumkin for the Savory Pumpkin Casserole recipe, and yanking out the slimey guts, I roasted the seeds... maryland style :)

I've posted this recipe before, but it's so good and I took some new pictures, so I am posting it again!

Maryland Style Pumpkin Seeds

Seeds from Pumpkin
Pinch of Salt
Olive Oil
Old Bay Seasoning

Soak pumpkin seeds in lightly salted water for about 2 hours.
drain and pat dry with paper towels
lightly coat in olive oil and arrange in a single layer on a foil lined pan
sprinkle on desired amount of Old Bay seasoning, coating both sides.
Bake for 30-45 minutes (depending on how crispy you like them) at 300 degrees, turning seeds every so often.


  1. That is so ironic that I just roasted pumpkin seeds today and while I was eating them,I thought I would look up the health benefits of them and I was amazed at how good they are for you.They can get rid of certain parasites in your body,prevent kidney stones,help regulate your cholesterol,has all the magnesium and zinc you need in a day...so so good and healthy

  2. Great post.Thanks for sharing such a useful information with us.

  3. What a neat way to spicen up pumpkin seeds. I think this could be a great idea for Fall 2012.
