Spiced Roasted Mixed Nuts


  • Salted mixed nuts
  • Brown sugar
  • Butter
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Fresh rosemary chopped fine
  • Experiment with ingredient proportions to taste

When we lived in New York City, we used to occasionally drop by the Union Square Cafe for happy hour. It’s one of my favorite haunts in the big apple. What really drew were these simply irresistible mixed bar nuts that they serve during the week at 4:45 pm. The really good part is that they are free ! I managed to coax some information out of the bartender, and here is my rendition of their recipe for the nuts.


  • Add nuts and all ingredients to oven proof skillet
  • Chop rosemary finely and add to skillet
  • Roast in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes
  • Pour inĀ  serving bowl making sure all ingredients are mixed well

Note: If you live in NYC or have the chance to visit…Stop by and check out the real thing for yourself:
