3 cups fresh pumpkin or squash seeds, washed and drained
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 to 1/3 cup ranch salad dressing mix
In a large skillet, saute seeds in oil for 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer seeds to an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with salad dressing mix; stir to coat. Spread in a single layer. Bake at 325° for 10-15 minutes or until crisp. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
