Spiced Pecans

Ok guys and gals, this is a completely easy and beautifully perfect recipe!  

Just a few simple ingredients push these pecans into flavor overdrive. 

These are great for serving to your guests on the weekends as a pre-dinner snack, sipping on a cold beer, waiting for the BBQ to be served…

 

And the best part is, these can be made ahead and stored for a week before serving…. however I doubt they’ll last that long!

 

Of course, we start with whole raw California pecans

 

We use egg whites as the base for keeping all the spices adhered to the nuts.  Easy peasy!

Separate the yolks from the whites in a bowl

 

And whisk vigorously until foamy

 

Add the spice mixture and stir well to combine

 

Add the nuts and spread onto a prepared baking sheet

 

Bake for 20 minutes

 

Aaaaaand, done!

 

Dig in and enjoy!

 

Here is the recipe for ya!
