  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
  2. Stir pumpkin seeds, whiskey, bacon drippings, brown sugar, and 2 teaspoons salt together in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook until the seeds begin to turn gray in the middle, 15 to 20 minutes; drain.
  3. Spread the drained seeds onto a baking sheet in a single layer; season with salt.
  4. Roast the pumpkin seeds in preheated oven until crisp and golden brown, 60 to 90 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Homemade bacon bits can be added as well as a light sprinkle of cayenne pepper if you like a bit of heat.
  • If you hate the idea of getting rid of 1/2 cup of whiskey as much as I do, drain the liquid mixture into a small sauce pan and reduce to about half. Then when the seeds have roasted about 1/4 of the way, drizzle the sauce over them.
  • Editor's Note:
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the whiskey sauce. The actual amount of the sauce consumed will vary.

Completely awesome! Made these for a work party. Addictivly good! I added some smoked chipolte sauce to the boil for a little extra kick!

I made it with Spiced Rum instead of whiskey and it was awesome! :)

One do the best roasted pumpkin seed recipes I've found. Being from KY, we love our bourbon. I made for a Thanksgiving Day snack, but I doubt they'll last that long!

Wow!!! I used Dewars Honey Whiskey because it was all I had and also because I thought it may give a good sweetness. I can't stop eating them and they aren't even done in the oven yet. I may hav...
