Zingy toasted pecans

I have never enjoyed the types of nuts that are so hard they hurt my teeth when I bite into them. Almonds? I love their flavor, but ouch! Peanuts, cashews and pecans? Mmmmm, so very tasty and no gnashing of teeth involved. I would say pecans are probably my favorite nut of all. I have a very difficult time stopping once I have started.

This pecan recipe is super tasty. It allows for a tiny bit of zing and it makes people Mmmmmm and Ohhhhhh. It is a great snack to serve at (or bring to) parties. And I learned that if you set them in the kitchen at your place of employment, within 30 minutes, all that is left are a few crumbs and an empty bowl.

Combine in a medium bowl:

1/4 cup melted butter

2 Tbsp. soy sauce

1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon hot sauce (optional, but I love the tiny bit of zing this puts in my mouth)

2 cups pecan halves

Stir all ingredients together.

Spread pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes or until toasted, stirring 3 times.
