How-To Video: Pepperoni Spiced Nuts

Transcript: How-To Video: Pepperoni Spiced Nuts

Today I'm making a spicy nut mixture using HORMEL® pepperoni minis. Now it's game day time once again and even if you're favorite team hasn't made it through I bet you're still going be watching. We all have our favorite treats that we'd like to eat on game day this one happens to be mine.

The first thing you want to do is preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with some parchment paper. It's a super easy recipe.
Whisk together two egg whites, 1/2 cup sugar and one teaspoon each of cumin, cayenne pepper, ground cinnamon, and garlic powder and then half a teaspoon of salt and ground pepper. You want to whisk this together until it's a creamy consistency. This is what's going to help give the nuts a really nice crunchy, crispy texture.

To this mixture add one cup each of whole almonds, pecan halves and cashews. Last but by no means least, a 5 oz. packet of the HORMEL® pepperoni minis. Now you can use either the original or the turkey. The turkey actually has 70% less fat but still has all that fabulous flavor. Now you want to stir this up and make sure everything is nicely coated in egg white spice mixture.

Spread this mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. This is going to bake in the preheated oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. Just make sure you give the mixture a stir 2 to 3 times during the cooking process.

Let the mixture cool completely before serving or storing.  It's become really nice and crisp. You can serve it in a large bowl or I also like the idea of serving it individually.  Whether your?e hosting game day or going to a friends to watch the big game try making a batch of these pepperoni spiced nuts using HORMEL® pepperoni minis. But be warned, they are addictive.
