I love bar nuts. No, not the people that hang out at the bar but the peanuts or mixed nuts. Not many places even put them out anymore so I like to make them at home, just to snack on. At midnight or two in the morning, not that I do that I’m just sayin’.
You’ll want to have some on hand for your next bonfire or card game or hey, even watching Duck Dynasty re-runs. I guarantee they will be gone before the party starts to get too lively 😉
They are quick, easy to make and you can buy a can of mixed nuts (check the date) at the dollar store. Woot! I love a cheap snack. So let’s make a batch. I mean who doesn’t love nuts right?
Spicy Mixed Nuts
2 T. melted butter
1 T. hot sauce (I used Frank’s original Red Hot)
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1 T. worcestershire sauce
1/4 t. salt (optional)
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. ground mustard
1 t. ground rosemary
1 1/2 t. Old Bay seasoning
1 can (9.5 oz) mixed nuts
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Bake for 20-22 minutes, stirring halfway through baking.
These are not too spicy or hot in my opinion. In fact, I would make them much hotter/spicier next time. So, if you don’t like much heat, these would be perfect for you. If you would like them hotter add more cayenne and less butter, more hot sauce.
Let cool for about an hour and store in an airtight container. Have a great weekend y’all!
