I bet you're probably wondering what I did with all those egg whites I had left over from the Key lime pie. Ok, I'll probably lose that bet, but anyway, here's what I did with them. I made spiced nuts!
There's a local shop that sells tiny little bags of spiced pecans for about 8 bucks. I confess: I've bought more of these than I probably should have; but they are really, really good. And probably healthy, too. Right?! Anyway, in an effort to save my bank account (it adds up, seriously!), I've been looking for a suitable replacement. Nothing quite stacked up though. There was not enough flavour, or they were too sweet, or too oily, or just plain gross. I had almost given up until I came across the spiced pecan recipe in Bite Me (they have several spiced nut variations in the salad section). I changed it up a little to get the flavours I was looking for, but I followed their technique and it works great.
Heat your oven to 250 and oil a baking sheet (I just poured a blob of oil on the tray and wiped it around with some paper towel).
They're really, really good.
