Cajun-Seasoned Roasted Pecans

I finally worked out the best way to make savory roasted pecans that taste really good!  So, how about I share that recipe with you for the holidays?  You can buy pecan halves, of course, but it’s so much better if you have them shelled in the freezer and just waiting for a great recipe to use them in and to give as gifts this holiday season.  This recipe is BW kitchen tested and approved and easy as can be.

Happy Holidays, and I hope everyone enjoys the pecans!  I can’t wait to give mine out as gifts!

Merry Christmas,


Cajun-Seasoned Roasted Pecans

Easy and delicious savory recipe using Louisiana pecans.  Great for gift-giving, too.

  • 8 Cups Pecan halves
  • 1 Stick Butter – salted (Or unsalted if you prefer)
  • 1 TBSP Tony Chacere's Creole Seasoning – No MSG
  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 

  2. Place pecans in large mixing type bowl

  3. Melt butter in microwave or stovetop

  4. Drizzle butter over pecans and toss, coating pecans evenly

  5. Pour pecans into large baking pan, preferably in single layer

  6. Bake for 15 minutes

  7. Remove from oven, and sprinkle evenly with half of Cajun seasoning, then flip and sprinkle with rest of seasoning

  8. Bake 15 minutes more

  9. Remove from oven AND hot pan onto cool pan so they don’t over bake

For Holiday giving, put them in 8 oz. canning jars with festive lids.

  1. Sounds yummy. I add a little brown sugar to mine. Won’t be making 8 cups tho! You must have a pecan tree or an elf that has pecans. Way too expensive this year. I hope all of your family will be together this year. Merry Christmas Cuz.

    1. Cuz, they are yummy, but I didn’t want sweet this time! Camp Dularge has a pecan tree with beautiful pecans, and I have some vacuum sealed in the freezer. Not much else that calls for large quantities of pecans and I needed something I could make as gifts that wouldn’t cost me an arm and a leg! Voila! Done deal!

  2. Sounds good. My family found mine in the freezer and there’s about 6 qts missing now. We have NONE this year. I had last years and a few from the year before. They took the fresher ones that were vacumn sealed. Little monsters. Wait till I feel better. They better be prepared to pick up pecans and help crack them next year. 🙂

    1. They are really good and so easy to make — and inexpensive if you have access to free and fresh pecans!!! BW

    1. Hi Cam! The one with the yellow flowers? If so, thanks so much but I have to give credit to my friend Polly Glover. As we left the planting site, I asked her to pull over so I could photograph the field. I knew I wanted to make that photo my new header photo, and later, she showed me how she took a pic of me taking a pic of the field, and I just decided to use it as the header. I love it, too. The flowers are so beautiful right now, although they are noxious weeds!!!

  3. Yep, that’s the one Wendy. I think it is so beautiful. We have bluebonnet fields a few miles from here that we go see each year. I think they are so gorgeous.

    1. We don’t have bluebonnet fields here naturally like y’all do, but someone down on Grand Isle has planted their property with them, and they are so alluring. Steffi camps down there so I know she’s seen them many times. Steffi? Know the property I’m talking about? Not far from the cutoff road to the state park, on the right, backs up to the beach/dune.
