"Double or triple this roasted pumpkin seed recipe depending on how many cups of seeds you have. One large pumpkin will generally yield 1 cup or pumpkin seeds, and smaller pie pumpkins will yield about the same amount. Toss a salad with these seeds, sprinkle over a chicken dish, or serve as a snack."

I followed the recipe exact only using a homemade cajun seasoning which had paprika so I omitted the additional paprika. I turned these every 10 minutes to make sure they did not burn. My seeds ...

These were amazing! I am not sure if it made any difference or not but I soaked the seeds in salted water for a few hours before following the directions here. They were perfect, just didn't mak...

I used bacon drippings instead of butter, only because we had bacon for breakfast. :) Other than that I followed the recipe and loved it!!!

I thought these turned out nicely. But I will say that I boiled my seeds in salt water then dried them out overnight before doing the recipe. I only had to cook them in the oven for 15 minutes.

Best pumpkin seeds I have ever had!

Easy & Wholesome, delish! I will make these again. Followed exactly, except my seasoning was Slap yo Mama, Cajun Spice, Thanks for sharing.

These really turned out good. Next time I'm going to sprinkle some ground red pepper on them and more cajun seasoning before baking.

This recipe was delicious! I added a sprinkle of cayenne pepper pepper and sea salt to give it a spicy bite. Delicious.

Great twist on an old fashioned recipe.
