I had a salad in Portland, OR once with mixed greens, cranberries, blue cheese and these sugar coated pecans. It was so memorable that I had to recreate it at home!
1 egg white
1 T. water
1 lb. pecan halves
1 cup white sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Grease baking sheet.
In a mixing bowl, whip together the egg white and water until frothy. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, salt and cinnamon.
Add pecans to egg whites, stir to oat the nuts evenly. Remove the nuts and toss them in the sugar mixture until coated. Spread the nuts out on a prepared baking sheet.
Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes.
