Choux De Bruxelles A La Flamande

Brussels Sprouts, Flemish Style

I couldn't make a Belgian dinner and leave out Brussels sprouts. This recipe is fairly easy and yet very tasty. Even my husband who doesn't usually like Brussels sprouts ended up eating quite a few.

Potato Croquettes

Brussels Sprouts, Flemish Style


  • 1 1/2 lbs. small Brussels sprouts
  • 6 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste.


Trim the base of the Brussels sprouts, remove the outer leaves and rinse.

Put the Brussels sprouts in a large pot of salted water. Bring to a boil and boil uncovered until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and rise with cold water.

In a heavy skillet, melt the butter over high heat until it turns brown. Add the sprouts and brown on all sides. Remove, sprinkle with nutmeg, salt and pepper and serve.
