I just used frozen brussels sprouts, and I didn't have a steamer basket so I just followed the directions on the back of the package and boiled them. I used a little more than a dash of pepper and nutmeg. Like I said, I like the seasoning, but I"m not sure how I feel about the veggies in general...
Brussels Sprouts with Water Chestnuts
- 1 pound fresh brussels sprouts
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Dash each pepper and nutmeg
Place sprouts in a steamer basket; place in a large saucepan over 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender.
In a large skillet, melt butter. Add water chestnuts, salt, pepper, and nutmeg; heat through. Stir in brussels sprouts.
