    This is my mum's recipe. The Brussels sprouts should be brown with a bit of black on the outside when done.

    WOW. this is one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten. So easy too! The only thing I changed was to add a dash of ground nutmeg to the mix. Nutmeg goes very well with brussel sprouts.  -  05 Mar 2009
