1. heat oven to 350 degrees. place seeds on baking sheet; toast until slightly brown (about 10 minutes)
2. place a skillet over medium heat and add butter and garlic salt or whatever spice you might like ( i use lawry's seasoning sometimes). stir in toasted seeds and toss until coated and cooked a bit (3 minutes or so) 3. pour mixture back onto baking sheet and stick back into oven until seeds are crisp (15-20 minutes)
