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!!!

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

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.

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

Best pumpkin seeds I have ever had!

These turned out quite good. I didn't use salt because I don't like salty nuts and seeds. I also used soy sauce instead of worcestershire because I didn't have any. Soy sauce worked just fine.

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