Barbecued Pecans

1 Comment

I’ve been looking at this recipe for a year or two trying to imagine what barbecued pecans would taste like.   The price of pecans really had more to do with me not trying it.  What if I hated them and wasted all those pecans?  I made them.  They are addictive!

Now, they are not spicy but they are very flavorful.  If you want them spicier, just add more hot sauce or vice versa.

They would make great gifts!

Barbecued Pecans

Barbecued Pecans

2 tbsps butter, melted
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp ketchup
1 tsp hot sauce (use more or less depending on how hot you want them)
4 cups pecans halves
salt to taste

Combine butter, Worcestershire, ketchup and hot pepper sauce and pour over pecans. Stir gently until pecans are coated.

Spread on a cookie sheet that has been covered with parchment paper.

Bake at 300º for 30 minutes, stirring at regular intervals to prevent any burning.

After baking, immediately spread on paper towels to cool; sprinkle generously with salt while still hot so the salt will stick.

Cool and store in an airtight container.

Makes 4 cups

Happy Cooking!

Well, I decided that since there wasn’t anyone here to share these cookies with that I would skip TWD this week.  They look delicious and I KNOW I would eat them all myself, LOL!  Everything will be back to normal next week.

So, in lieu of a link to a TWD recipe, I will post a link to the Sugared Pecans I DID make yesterday.  I’ve seen this recipe in different places and decided to make them as a try out for Christmas and hostess gifts.  They are delicious and would fit the bill for any food gift giving.   The recipe is on Recipezaar and they are super easy to make.  I did make them a little different than the directions stated and you can read how I did it in my review on the recipe (screen name Lvs2Cook).
