If there is one concept I love, it’s roasted nuts around the holidays lol. For some reason, it’s become a holiday concept even though I could have them year round. They are great on anything and everything from soups to salads, dips and more. There are countless varieties, you can mix up the herbs and spices, and if you’re like me..
You capture the flavor of sweet, with a lil heat!
In recent years I’ve found that my go to flavor profile is sweet and spicy. Those 2 dimensions of flavors pair so well together and truly elevates any dish. This approach is so popular, I’ve even see it done on ice cream lol. Needless to say, when thinking of the next best nut concept, I knew we had to do a Hot Honey version!
To further amplify this flavor, I knew we also had to explore brown butter! If you’re not familiar with browning butter, it’s just a few minutes to throw together and really enhances that butter flavor and adds a hint of nuttiness. Since finally exploring brown butter we’ve done an array of recipes featuring it. It’s so much fun to play around with that you just have to try it!
What’s great about these nuts?
It’s just a handful of staple ingredients, notes of brown butter, a hint of heat, salty, and a bit of sweet!
These nuts are quick and easy to throw together, are low sugar, can easily be made in bulk, perfect by themselves, but could easily be thrown on countless dishes, you can mix up the nuts, you can add superfoods like quinoa, and are just such a staple!
If you’re searching for more ways to love hot honey, you have to try these new Salted Hot Honey Nuts with Brown Butter!
