Bacon Pumpkin Seeds
Bacon from pasture-raised pigs is rich in Omga 3 and Vitamin D, not to mention it's tremendous flavor. With that much flavor, you only need a small amount of bacon to make your pumpkin seeds full of flavor and add protein too.
If pumpkins go on sale after Halloween, I highly recommend you buy some and make up a few batches of this recipe. Everyone is going to want a handful of these pumpkin seeds.
For every ¼ cup of pumpkin seeds, use:
1 slice bacon, chopped
1 tsp. maple sugar
¼ tsp. garlic salt
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Pull the seeds from the pumpkin and rinse them off.
In a bowl, mix the seeds, bacon, maple sugar, and garlic. Pour the mixture onto a foil-lined, rimmed baking sheet. Spread out.
Bake for 15 minutes. Stir with a spatula. Bake for another 5 minutes. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.
