With fresh thyme, rosemary, black pepper, and a touch of sugar, these herb-roasted pecans strike that perfect sweet-and-salty balance. They make a great addition to a spread of snacks for a pool party or backyard barbecue.
Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl, combine pecans, sugar, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper; stir in egg white.
Spread mixture in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring once, until golden, 15 to 18 minutes (if mixture sticks to pan, scrape up with a spatula). Let cool completely before serving, about 30 minutes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.
