I'm constantly fiddling with my pumpkin seed recipe, trying new things to get the best results. I made a fantastic batch last weekend though, and I must share.
So I pulled out all the seeds and put them in a bowl, and removed all the stringy bits while leaving the general pumpkin goo. I added a bit, maybe about a table spoon, of kosher salt and a few shots of cayenne pepper, and stirred it around so it all melted into the goo. Then I left it there to marinate for about a half hour while I cleaned out and prepped the seeds from my second pumpkin. Then I laid them out on a cookie sheet and baked for 20 minutes at 300 degrees F. After 20 they weren't done so I checked every 5 minutes until they were golden brown and delicious at 35 mins total.
I'd say try experimenting around. And write down what you do, so you remember what's good and bad.
