I don’t see nuts on that list…. but I know their number has to be high too…..I have had this recipe for a long time so , in honor of America..and the great game …. this is for y’all !!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3 cups nuts of any kind. I used Peanuts, Cashews and Pecans
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Course Ground Black Pepper
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Spray the bottom of a 9×13 Casserole Dish with cooking spray.  In a  bowl, add the egg white and vanilla until frothy.
  2. Add the egg mix to the mixed nuts and fold until coated. ( I add the pecans after the first few folds, I don’t want them to break so I go a bit easy on them)
  3. In another bowl mix your brown sugar and cinnamon. Add to the nuts and fold until coated. Spread the nuts evenly in your pan.
  4. Bake for 50-60 minutes.
  5. Stir every 10 minutes until golden.
  6. Remove from oven and Spread out on a flat surface to cool, immediately sprinkle with salt and pepper while still hot.
  7. Store in an air tight container.
