Recipe Ingredients for Cajun Barbecue Pumpkin Seeds

16 tablespoon Pumpkin Seeds
1 large Egg, White
1 tbsp Sweet Baby Rays Barbecue Sauce
2 tsp Cajun Seasoning
2 tsp Sugars, Granulated

Recipe Directions for Cajun Barbecue Pumpkin Seeds

  1. Using a serrated knife, cut pumpkin in half.

  2. Use an ice cream scooper (or large spoon) to scoop out seeds and string, etc and place in a strainer.

  3. Put the mess of seeds and "pumpkin guts" into a bowl of water. Using your hands, try to separate the seeds from the other disposable material. Generally, you can pinch the seeds right right where they are attached to the orange pulp of the pumpkin and the seeds will fall off. Once you've done this, the seeds should float, which makes them easier to separate.

  4. Lay out seeds on parchment paper to dry for 1 day. Preheat oven to 350

  5. Combine egg whites with the following ingredients (the remainder of each ingredient should be set aside and will be used after the seeds come out of the oven): 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, 1 pinch of salt, 1/4 tablespoon barbecue sauce.

  6. Add pumpkin seeds and toss well, then drain off excess liquid.

  7. Spread onto a parchment lined baking sheet and back for 10-12 minutes or until the seeds begin to turn golden.

  8. Remove from oven and let cool.

  9. In a tupperware container, combine seeds, sugar (2 teaspoons), remaining barbecue sauce (3/4 tablespoon), and remaining Cajun seasoning (1 teaspoon). Cover and shake well to mix. Seeds should be covered by the powder mixture. Add barbecue sauce and Cajun seasoning to taste.
