Standard

Roasted Buttered Nuts with Two Variations for appetizers

Makes about 4-6 servings

Ingredients:

  1. 2 C. (about 1 lb.) unsalted nuts such as pecans, almonds or cashews
  2. 1 Tblsp. peanut oil or melted butter
  3. S&P to taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450
  2. Toss the nuts in a bowl with the oil/butter and S&P.
  3. Place on baking sheet and roast, shaking occasionally, until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  4. Cool before serving; they will crisp as they cool

Two Variations:

 

Sautéed Buttered Nuts:

Instructions:

  1. Place 4 Tblsp. butter or peanut oil in a large skillet and turn heat to med.-low.
  2. When the butter melts or the oil is hot, add the nuts and cook, stirring, until lightly browned—about 10 minutes.  Be patient; high heat will burn the nuts.
  3. As they cook season with S&P.

Spiced Buttered Nuts:

Instructions:

  1. Add 1 Tsp. to 1 Tblsp. of any spice mixture such as chili powder or all purpose curry powder to the mix as directed below:
