1/4 cup butter
3 cups pecan halves
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Hot pepper sauce, like Tabasco, to taste - start with a teaspoon and go from there
Seasoned salt to taste - start with 1/2 teaspoon and go from there
Preheat oven to 250. Melt butter and stir in garlic, hot pepper sauce and seasoned salt.
Pour pecans into sprayed 9x13 pan in a single layer.
Drizzle butter mixture over nuts and stir to coat well.
Bake 1 hour or until nuts are crisp, stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool and store at room temperature in airtight container up to 1 month.
