Food Network magazine recently featured a BBQ spiced nuts recipe so we thought we might give it a whirl for the holidays. WOW That’s all I got! I finally put a dish of them away or nobody else is going to experience these delish morsels. And, the best part is that they are super easy.
Note that there are a couple of different types of paprika — we didn’t have those, just a spanish paprika that we use to make barbeque rub, and just used one total tablespoon although the recipe calls for 2.
This would also be great to gift to friends and family. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
1.5 cups pecans
1.5 cups honey-roasted peanuts
1 cup salted roasted almonds
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tbsp sweet paprika
1 tbsp smoked paprika (we just used 1 tbsp regular paprika, and it really isn’t spicy)
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Whisk 1 egg white in a large bowl until frothy. Add the nuts and stir until evenly coated. Add the spice mix and toss to coat. Spread the nuts in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake, stirring occasionally, until toasted and just dry, about 25 minutes.
Let the nuts cool completely on the baking sheet (they will crisp as they cool). Break up any clusters.
