Kate Doesn’t Like Brussel Sprouts

When I first started dating my now wife, I was planning dinner and asked if she liked brussel sprouts. She said she didn’t like them to which I replied that I bet this recipe could change her mind. Now a days, when I see brussel sprouts in the grocery bags, I know which recipe to turn to.
  • 1 lb. brussel sprouts
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. EVOO
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 5 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  1. trim stems, pluck dead leaves and halve brussel sprouts
  2. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil in a large sauce pan
  3. Boil sprouts with salt in water for 4-5 minutes (so they are just under done)
  4. Drain spouts and set aside
  5. Sauté olive oil, garlic and red pepper for 1 minute
  6. Add nutmeg and sprouts and saute for 1 more minute
  7. Mix in cheese until it melts – about 1 more minue
