My family has been working very hard for the last few years to develop a more bountiful garden and this year they were able to do that. They brought me some of their bounty and in that harvest included an acorn squash, and I finally got around to cooking it!! So not only will there be a recipe for that coming along but I was able to utilize the seeds to make something crunchy and delicious. Everyone knows that they like pumpkin seeds but you should give acorn seeds a chance!! They are the perfect crunchy snack!
- pumpkin seeds
- salt and pepper
- garlic powder (optional)
- pan spray
- I scooped the seeds once the squash was already cooked. But you could do it before or after.
- Remove the seeds from the guts ( I ran it under warm water in a strainer)
- Then on a pan place the seeds, spray with pan spray, then sprinkle with salt and pepper and light garlic
- Bake for 30 minutes until golden and crunchy.
- Then enjoy!!!
