Roasted Pumpkin Seeds


The basic recipe for roasted pumpkin seed simply goes like this: Mix melted butter and a dash of salt with pumpkin seeds, spread the seeds on a cookie sheet in a single layer, roast for 45 minutes. I didn't want to have to do extra cleanup (a saucepan for melted butter, plus a cookie sheet), so I threw cast iron into the mix, and I'm certain the hot cast iron pan helped the seeds roast better and quicker than a regular cookie sheet. The result:

P.S. - you don't even have to wash out your cast iron pan! After the pan cools off, just give it a good wipe-down with a paper towel to take off the excess grease, and the pan is ready to be put away. The butter adds to the seasoning of the pan's surface.
