Recipe by spatchcock

This is an adopted recipe that I've not yet had the chance to make. If I were trying it, though, I'd add some spices, like cayenne, garlic powder, and other savory spices to improve upon it (see below review by original poster).

I posted this recipe for someone who was looking for roasted pumpkin seeds. I found it online... now after finally trying this recipe, I have to say that results are disappointing.
