If you're in the mood for a sports-watching snack, this take on beer nuts -- with soy sauce and wasabi -- might just hit the spot. It's a creation of Plan Check Kitchen + Bar, a place that knows from snacks. Beer Nuts
2.5 cups dry roasted peanuts
1.5 cups whole cashews
2 egg whites
2 tbsp soy sauce
9 tbsp white sugar
1 tbsp wasabi powder
4 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
½ tsp cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 225°. In a mixing bowl, whip together the egg whites and soy sauce until frothy.
For the seasoning, in a separate bowl, mix together sugar, wasabi powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
Soak peanuts and cashews in egg white and soy sauce mixture for 10 minutes. Drain the nuts of excess egg white mixture until only a thin layer remains on nuts.
Toss nuts in seasoning mixture to coat evenly. Spread the nuts out on a non-stick baking sheet and bake for 1½ hours stirring every 15 minutes.
