WOW! I'm never buying Smokehouse Almonds from the store ever again!!! I used the egg white method and added the woo sauce and a dash of liquid smoke to whites and whipped until frothy. Tossed with the almonds and briefly drained in a colander. I used Lawry's seasoned salt (the BEST!) in place of celery and regular salt and baked at 300 for 20minutes! Perfect!!!

I definitely love the blend of spices with these nuts. However, I didn't care for the greasiness of the butter. I used recipe #97278 Savory Spiced Nuts as a guideline. I mixed all dry ingredients of this above recipe minus the salt in a bowl. I whisked an egg white and 1 T. of water, mixed with nuts, and drained for a few minutes. Put nuts in a brown paper lunch bag, poured 1tsp Worcestershire sauce over nuts, added spices and shook bag. Dumped out onto a cookie sheet and baked at 250 for 30 min or so. The end result is a nice dry nut with wonderful seasonings.

These are easy and turn out very tasty. I knocked one star off because the instructions do not give you any indication as to how long to bake the nuts. 5min? 15? 30? Based on another similar recipe, I baked mine for 4 minutes, then stirred them and then baked them for another 5 minutes. For the reviewer who said the butter made them too greasy, I thought that also but once they continued to cook, the greasiness went away. So if your nuts seem to greasy, try baking them a little bit more.
