All Recipes offers two unique recipes for oven-toasted pecans with as few ingredients as three and as many as six. Additionally, Epicurious provides an upscale recipe for oven-toasted pecans with sea salt.
The recipe with the least ingredients for oven-toasted pecans comes from All Recipes. The ingredient list includes 1 cup melted butter, 6 cups pecans and salt to personal taste. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, pour in butter and toss the pecans until they are well coated. On a baking sheet, create a single layer of pecans and salt. Stirring occasionally, bake for approximately an hour. Cool and store in a dry container.
The second All Recipes offering for oven-toasted pecans requires more ingredients, including 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon water, 2 1/4 cup pecan halves, 1/2 cup white sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly oil a baking pan. Mix the egg white and water and beat until fluffy. Toss the pecans into mixture and coat thoroughly.
Mix sugar, salt and cinnamon into a shaker and sprinkle over the pecans. Spread the pecans evenly on a baking sheet. Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Once the pecans are toasted, cool and store in a container.
Epicurious offers a recipe similar to the simpler All Recipes expect for the exchange of sea salt for regular sea salt. The ingredients are 2 cups pecan halves, 3 tablespoons melted butter and sea salt. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and toss pecans in butter until coated. Spread the pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake approximately 15 minutes until darkened. Cool and store in a container.
