Roasted Pumpkin Seeds...with a KICK!

Don't throw away those pumpkin seeds!

This Halloween, try my easy, spicy concoction for roasted seeds with some serious KICK!
After you've gutted your pumpkins, toss the innards into a bowl with water to encourage separation. 
Let it sit for a half hour or so and then remove the seeds from the goop.

Lay the clean pumpkin seeds on a towel to dry for an hour or so.
Preheat your oven to 275 degrees F.

Once dry, toss 2 cups of pumpkin seeds into a bowl and mix with-
1 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter
1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce

and if you're awesome and brave, add...

1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
a teaspoon of Sriracha sauce
a teaspoon of tabasco sauce

Once thoroughly mixed, spread the seeds on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 30 minutes.

When the time has elapsed, stir the seeds well and continue to bake for another 30 minutes- total bake time should be about one hour, till the seeds are slightly browned.
Then sit down by the light of your jack-o-lantern and enjoy the fruits of your labor!

Happy chompin', friends. I can't get enough of this devilishly delicious snack.
