An addicting nibble to have with a beer or a glass of wine. (Two secret ingredients make it special).
2 tablespoons butter
2 - 2 1/2 cups unsalted walnut halves
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Melt butter in a medium skillet. Saute walnuts until lightly browned, adding salt as they cook. Sprinkle in brown sugar and cayenne, mix well and serve warm. Notes: I make small batches so they'll stay nice and warm (although you can microwave them if you need to). Also works well with cashews and pecans.
