Sticky Sweet Sriracha Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Sriracha adds some heat to these pumpkin seeds, while honey adds a touch of sweetness.

Sticky Sweet Sriracha Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Every person I know, me included, has a bit of a Sriracha obsession. I mean, I even put Sriracha on popcorn. Oh, and on fried eggs. Too good! So you know that when Fall rolled around and I started scheming about pumpkin seeds, Sriracha would have to make its way in there too.

The heat from the Sriracha is balanced by some sweet honey and salt soy sauce. You roast the seeds most of the way plain first and then add the flavor mixture just for a little while at the end.
