Pecan Scrabble

Suzanne Larsen


My dad was a cook before there were (celebrity) chefs. He made the best food. He came up with this recipe, long before there were recipes for all types of Chex mix. This has no Chex in it, but the concept is similar. Would make a perfect Super Bowl snack or any other time too.

  4. Add 2 cups of pecans to the mix.
  5. Season with salt and pepper, a few drops of Worcestershire, and a few drops of the soy sauce.
  6. Pour the melted butter over everything.

  8. Bake for one hour, turning the mixture twice.
