This reliable recipe dates back to the 1970s. A dash of nutmeg adds interest to the fast-to-fix combination of buttery brussel sprouts and crunchy water chestnuts.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 19, 2010

I thought the seasonings were good, but I don't think I"m a fan of brussels sprouts, which is why I said I wouldn't make it again. But those that like brussels sprouts should definitely try it!
