National Walnut Day

Here is a great recipe to celebrate National Walnut Day.  We buy our walnuts at Costco as you can tell by the picture.

Spicy Cajun Walnuts

2 egg whites
1 tbsp. Water
2 tsp. Ground cayenne pepper
1 tsp. Dried parsley
1 tsp. Dried oregano
1 tsp. Dried basil
3 tsp. Garlic salt
2 tsp. Paprika
4 c. walnut halves (1 lb)

Preheat oven to 360 degrees F. Coat a large, shallow baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, place egg whites, water, cayenne, herbs, garlic salt and paprika. Beat with a whisk until blended. Add walnuts and toss until evenly coated. Spread evenly in baking pan.

Bake in the preheated oven until nuts look dry and toasted, stirring once halfway through, 18-10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Store in airtight container.
