Delicious Ways To Use Honey-Roasted Pecans

by Dolores Fletcher

A native of the southern United States and Northern Mexico, pecans are tree nuts. Known for their rich flavor, pecans contain a variety of nutrients, including plenty of protein, iron, and B vitamins. Not only are pecans good for you, but they also make delicious additions to both sweet and savory dishes. Roasted pecans are also hearty snacks on their own.

If you love nuts and have a sweet tooth, consider purchasing honey roasted pecans, which will also satisfy a craving for salt. When buying honey-roasted pecans as gifts or for serving at a party, you can purchase them in bulk as a convenient, money-saving option. These sweet and savory treats are typically made by tossing the pecans with a honey mixture, and then slow-roasting them in an oven to enhance their nutty flavor. 

There are many ways that you can incorporate honey-roasted pecans into your favorite snacks and recipes. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Appetizers and Snacks 

1. Charcuterie Board 

When it comes to party menu planning, few things are more fun to put together than charcuterie boards. Filled with small bites such as cubed or sliced cheeses, crackers, pretzels, and smoked meats, these boards are sure to please everyone on your guest list.

For your next get-together, incorporate a few handfuls of nuts, such as cashews, almonds, and honey roasted pecans into the mix. 

2. Cheese Ball

Another fun way to get party guests ready for the main course is with a cheese ball. Keep it interesting by rolling the ball in crushed honey roasted pecans, covering the entire surface. Party-goers can spread the nutty cheese onto any type of cracker or bread.

Main Courses

1. Salads

If you're looking for an alternative to basic croutons on your favorite main-course salad, honey roasted pecans will add both crunch and plenty of flavor. The sweet nuts will make the ideal topping for salads tossed with fruity vinaigrettes and creamy blue cheese or ranch dressings. 

2. Stir-Fry

Add a surprising twist to a chicken, shrimp, or vegetarian stir-fry with honey-roasted pecans. Start by tossing your vegetables, such as broccoli, carrots, and pea pods, and protein of choice with a sweet and sour sauce, and then serving over steamed jasmine rice. Top with a sprinkling of sweet pecans to add texture.

You can also mix the nuts into the sauce during the cooking process if you prefer.
