It takes asparagus from great to frickin' awesome. Trust me on this one, it'll change your life.
I'm beginning to think that nutmeg is a distant cousin of bacon simply because adding nutmeg, much like adding bacon, seems to make everything better. (Put a little nutmeg on a ham and Gruyere sandwich - holy smokes.)

I kept it on mostly indirect heat and let it cook for maybe 15 minutes, turning a couple times.

It was an awesome surprise and very, very tasty. I may have found a new favorite veg to go with grilled stuff.
Is that an oval dutch oven? or is it flat on the bottom? I need one of those!

It's a Lodge gratin dish. Yep, flat on the bottom.

I dont know if it is better than traditional potato salad or German potato salad... but mix boiled red potatoes with grainy dijon mustard and a couple grades of nutmeg. Fantastic for a change.

A little bit of nutmeg or cinnamon are often the secret ingredient that can not be identified but put something, you would never think would have it, over the top.

I'm with you on that one. Bacon, nutmeg, smoked paprika...there are few foods that could not be improved by a modest (or sometimes liberal) addition of at least one of these three.


Damn...it's midnight, and I'm craving bacon. Not good...

Lots of great ideas for the mighty sprout -- many of which I have used with variations.

I also put them in the smoker with a little butter or EVOO, salt pepper, etc. and let 'em rip for 2-3 hours at 225F.

Here's another take:

Slice the brussels in half and marinate with balsamic vinagrette for about an hour. Bring the oven to 400 and bake for about 45 minutes. The balsamic will carmelize and the brussels taste awesome. Turned this 'hater' into a 'lover'.

Cheers!

My wife does this exact same thing and there's rarely any leftovers. It's also incredible on the grill with the balsamic.

I will have to try that. I like good balsamic on just about everything.
