WARM AND TOASTY NUTS WITH ROSEMARY AND SHALLOTS

Just in time for the Superbowl…

These nuts are a great idea for your snack table.

At a recent Christmas cookie exchange, which I wrote about here, this recipe was the star of the show.  

Nevermind the sparkly cookies, decorated cut-outs,  fudge, and numerous other sweets. We wanted savory, spicy, and salty.  We wanted whatever that was we could smell baking in the kitchen.

Rosemary, shallots and garlic flavor these toasty mixed nuts.  It’s best to eat them warm out of the oven. Certainly the same day. I recommend serving them from a small slow cooker since “warm” is the best way to eat them.

One warning: the smell!

Oh my! Talk about aromatherapy. One whiff and you will forget about your troubles and your waistline. They may even help soften the disappointment if your favorite team didn’t make it to the Super Bowl.

I've made this recipe From Martha's cookbook but have always been uncertain as to whether the nuts are supposed to be raw or roasted??? Can you enlighten me? Thanks.

Kay, I used roasted nuts. The baking in this recipe essentially warms them up. Good question!

I am making this recipe for a couples shower Saturday night. The shallots look like purple onions in the pic. Will the shallots be easy to find in the produce section? Will let you know how mine turn out. This recipe sounds really delicious! Thank you!

Wait, save some for me! What a great looking recipe. I usually make sugared nuts, but these savory ones look quite good! Do they go well with velveeta and doritos? :) Beautifully-presented (as usual)!
