I have decided for the Saturday and Sunday blogs from now on, I will just post some fun, easy recipes. The weekends should be leisurely and so should the recipes. Here is one I hope you will “go nuts” for, maybe while watching the NCAA tournament – at least that’s what my husband is doing the next couple weekends!
2 cups raw whole almonds (blanched or skins on – either way works)
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
2 Tablespoons Tabasco sauce (or your favorite hot sauce)
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Place all the ingredients, except the salt, in a mixing bowl and toss until the nuts are coated.
3. Place the coated nuts in prepared pan and spread into a single layer. Bake for 40-45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, until nuts are nicely browned.
4. Remove from oven and immediately loosen nuts with a spatula. Sprinkle the salt evenly over the nuts and set aside to cool.
