Here’s a little secret for you: I used to hate pecans. HATED them. I didn’t know the flavor and thought they looked funny and didn’t think they were worth eating unless coated in sugar and baked in a pie. Pie will change the flavor of most things for the better. HOWEVER, I’m not afraid to admit that I’m wrong, so when I was making a list of holiday treats I wanted to share with you guys I immediately thought back to a dish my mom used to make all the time.
She’s the baking/food QUEEN!
Remember the spicy/savory/wonderful Chex mix that had Worchestershire sauce and garlic and heaven in it? This tastes like that, just better. Better because it has more of that awesome flavor and you don’t have to put up with the Chex pieces that don’t get the mixture on them. And better because I said so…go make this and you’ll see why!
All you need are 4.5 ingredients and you’re done. 4.5 ingredients? What does that even mean? Basically it means I’m only counting salt as half an ingredient. Because it’s Wednesday. And because I can 🙂
These are so addictive it’s a shock that I’ve only eaten half of the batch, most of which was right when it came out of the oven. It was totally worth not tasting my food for days because of a burned tongue.
- 2 cups whole pecans
- 2 Tbsp canola oil
- 2 Tbsp liquid smoke
- 2 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 275. Dump pecans in a bowl and dump the oil, liquid smoke, and Worchestershire sauce on top. Stir to combine. Pour onto a sheet pan sprayed with nonstick spray. Roast at 275 for 25-30 minutes, stirring 3-4 times. When they’re done, remove from oven and lightly sprinkle with salt. Enjoy
