Roasted Pumpkin Seeds 3 Ways

The following recipe was created in collaboration with Lauren Schulte. To see more of her bites and meals, visit her Instagram @TheBiteSizePantry

It’s a time-honored tradition to carve pumpkins for homemade porch décor every fall, but when the spooky season approaches, you can find me in the kitchen whipping up a batch or two of roasted pumpkin seeds.

When it comes to roasting these bite-size seeds, a good sprinkle of salt is often all you need, but since this season only comes once a year, I decided to up the flavor ante with three new spice blends.

Sweet and savory, my Salt and Vinegar, Pumpkin Spice and Dilly Ranch seasonings are simple to mix and addicting to eat all season long.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
