Toasted Acorn Squash Seeds

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

How to:

  1. I scooped the seeds once the squash was already cooked.  But you could do it before or after.
  2. Remove the seeds from the guts ( I ran it under warm water in a strainer)
  3. Then on a pan place the seeds, spray with pan spray, then sprinkle with salt and pepper and light garlic
  4. Bake for 30 minutes until golden and crunchy.
  5. Then enjoy!!!
