Parmesan Herbed Walnuts

This is a simple recipe for savory, seasoned walnuts that are delicious as a quick snack, or a welcome change from croutons when tossed on a green salad.


½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
½ teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
½ teaspoon garlic salt
Dash of cayenne pepper
1 egg white
2 cups walnut halves and pieces

  1. In a medium bowl, combine Parmesan cheese, parsley flakes, herb seasoning, garlic salt, and cayenne pepper. Set the bowl aside.
  2. In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg white until frothy. Add walnut halves and pieces and toss to coat. Add walnuts to the cheese mixture and mix thoroughly.
  3. Spread in a single layer on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake at 250°F for about 30 minutes until golden and crisp. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  4. Store the walnuts in an airtight container.
