Total Time
Prep 5 mins

Freshly grated nutmeg adds a wonderful subtle flavor to the Brussels sprouts. Add only enough to enhance, not to overpower.


  1. Cook Brussels sprouts in minimum salted boiling water.
  2. Drain.
  3. Make browned butter by cooking butter in skillet over low heat.
  4. Add Brussels sprouts to butter.
  5. Grate small amount of nutmeg over sprouts and salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Toss to coat.

My mom makes Brussels sprouts this way. The browned butter and nutmeg are wonderful together!! She adds a pinch of sugar to them as well. I highly recommend every Brussels sprout lover to try this recipe!
