To round out this week of pumpkin recipes, I leave you with Sweet and Spicy Toasted Pumpkin Seeds. I was able to make all these recipes with 1 fresh pumpkin, and of course I couldn't waste the seeds!
Sweet and Spicy Toasted Pumpkin SeedsRecipe from 101 Cookbooks
1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds
1 egg white
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp sea salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl whisk together egg white, sugar, pepper, and salt. Add pumpkin seeds and toss to coat. Drain off excess egg whites with a strainer.
Line a baking sheet with foil and pour coated seeds onto pan. Spread into a single layer.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes, until golden. Sprinkle with a little more sugar and pepper right when they come out of the oven. Allow to cool and enjoy!
