I love putting Roasted Pecans in my salads but they can be so expensive, especially when compared to the price of raw pecans. I buy raw pecans for $6 a pound, and roasted pecans are $14 a pound.
The solution, of course, is to roast them yourself and save $8 a pound. And it’s easy to do. Here’s my recipe for savory, buttery roasted pecans.
1 pound pecans
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the butter in the microwave. Pour the pecans and salt into the butter and mix with a spoon or your hands until the nuts are evenly coated.
Spread the nuts out on a cookie sheet. Cook for 15-20 minutes, making sure to turn the nuts once. Watch them so they don’t burn.
Remove from the oven and let cool. Enjoy!
