One of the best parts about the Halloween tradition of carving pumpkins is that it gives us an excuse to make roasted pumpkin seeds.

Whether it's as simple as adding some sugar or as trendy as dousing them in sriracha, we've compiled 8 roasted pumpkin seeds recipes to help you find your new favorite. We promise these will have you thinking twice before you toss your Jack-O-Lantern's insides.
