Ingredients:
SERVINGS: MAKES 4 CUPS

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 cups pecans (about 1 pound)

Preparation:

  • Preheat oven to 300°. Whisk butter, Worcestershire sauce, salt, garlic powder, mustard powder, hot sauce, and cayenne in a medium bowl. Add pecans and toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer in a large cast-iron skillet or on a rimmed baking sheet and roast, tossing occasionally, until pecans are well toasted and spices are fragrant, 25–30 minutes. These are pretty great served warm, or let cool.

  • Do Ahead: Pecans can be made 2 days ahead. Store tightly wrapped at room temperature.
