Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    It’s easy to change up the flavors of roasted pumpkin seeds with simple seasoning blends. Here are a few ideas to try. For each 1 cup of seeds, simply add: • Basic: 2 tablespoons melted butter + 1/4 teaspoon salt + 1/4 teaspoon pepper • Italian: 2 tablespoon melted butter + 1/4 cup grated Parmesan + 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning • Sweet: 2 tablespoons melted butter + 1 tablespoon brown sugar + 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon • Savory: 2 tablespoons melted butter + 1 teaspoon seasoned salt + 1 teaspoon white vinegar (Note: Add the vinegar after roasting.) • Spicy: 2 tablespoons olive oil + 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning + 1/2 teaspoon fresh lime zest (Note: Add the zest after roasting.)
  • tip 2
    For best results, when cooking pumpkin seeds be sure to use a 15x10-inch pan or a pan large enough for the the seeds to spread out in a single layer.
  • tip 3
    If you want to avoid messy hands, wear gloves while removing the pulp from the pumpkin and the seeds from the pulp.
