Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon melted ghee or butter
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning or 1 teaspoon dried basil plus 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic pepper or garlic powder
  • 1 cup walnut halves
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup whole almonds
  • 2 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • In a bowl, whisk together ghee (or butter), Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, salt, and garlic pepper.
  • Add walnuts, cashews, and almonds. Mix well.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and spread nuts in pan. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. (Be careful not to rip the foil when you stir the second time.)

Notes

If you need a quick, portable snack, divide mixture into 1/4 cup servings and place each in a single-serving plastic bag.
Use any combination of nuts you'd like.
Watching sodium? Most of the sodium is coming from the Kosher salt and the cheese. The cheese adds a ton of flavor, so I'd try eliminating the added salt first.
