  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking pan with parchment.
  2. Mix the sugar, Cajun seasoning and cayenne together in a small bowl. If your Cajun seasoning does not contain salt, add 3/4 teaspoon salt.
  3. Mix the warm bacon fat or butter with the garlic in a large bowl. Add the almonds, cashews, pecans and peanuts and toss to coat well.
  4. In another large bowl, whisk the egg white vigorously until foamy. Add the nuts to the egg white and toss to coat. Add the seasoning mix and toss to coat.
  5. Spread the nuts on the prepared baking pan in a single layer. Bake, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes, until glossy and lightly toasted, about 1 hour. Cool completely; the nuts will crisp as they cool.
