Sweet & Savory Pecans

Are you having an Oscar Party on Sunday?  Here are some great roasted pecans that have some unusual ingredients but pack the punch.

Rather than the typical candied pecans try something different.  These nuts have a hint of sweetness to them but more of that savory flavor.  They’re perfect to set out on the table for all your guests to nibble, yet so addicting you might need to make more than one batch.

Just one more thing to add to your Oscar Party menu!

Sweet & Savory Pecans
(makes 2 cups)


1 large egg white
3 tbsp. dark brown sugar
1 tbsp. kosher salt
2 tsp. dried oregano
3/4 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 heaping tsp. cayenne pepper
Pinch of  ground cloves
2 cup unsalted pecans or mixed nuts


Preheat oven to 250 F. degrees.  Line a baking sheet with heavy duty foil.

Whisk the egg white, brown sugar, salt, oregano, coriander, cumin, cayenne, and cloves in a medium bowl until thoroughly blended and slightly foamy.

Add the nuts and toss to coat evenly.

Spread nuts onto prepared baking sheet and roast, stirring every 15 minutes, for 45 minutes.

Nuts will be fragrant and slightly darker but still a bit moist (they will crisp as they cool).

Cool completely on a pan and serve at room temperature.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
