Cajun Spiced Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

So I LOVE roasting pumpkin seeds but I always wanted the perfect way to do it. I’ve roasted them before and they haven’t turned out the way I wanted them too. So I tried something new this time. I boiled them…I used 2 recipes to make 1 my own

so I used this recipe and this recipe 

So I carved my pumpkin and rinsed my seeds and drained them

and then I dried my seeds out on towels in a single layer for a couple nights,

to make sure they were completely dried out. I turned them over and moved them around to make sure they were completely dried out.

So I used seeds from one large pumpkin, so I had about 2 cups of seeds.

So I filled a saucepan with 2 cups of water, then turned the burner to high heat

then I turned my oven to 300 degrees

I placed the drained seeds into a medium bowl

and then I grabbed:
2 tablespoons of butter
Worcestershire sauce
Cajun Seasoning
Garlic salt
