Foodie Byte: Creole seasoning blends can vary from brand to brand; some are saltier or spicier than others; adjust the quantity of seasoning used based on your own taste preferences.

Preparation

  1. Combine butter, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce and Creole seasoning in a large non-stick skillet and stir until blended; heat until bubbly over medium-low heat.
  2. Add pecans and toss in butter mixture to evenly coat. Pan-toast pecans over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning.
  3. Add brown sugar and stir to blend; continue pan-toasting for 2 to 3 minutes over low heat or until sugar is dissolved and pecans are golden and toasted.
  4. Cool.
