Sprouts are contentious, it's true, but even those who profess undying hate might be tempted by these sweet, nutmeg butter sprouts. Cooked at a lower temperature in the Ooni sizzler pan, you’re left with delightfully soft sprouts that’ll pair perfectly with any festive meal.
Ooni Cast Iron Sizzler Pan
Serves 4 as a side dish
400g (14oz) Brussels sprouts, halved & outer leaves removed
100g (1 stick) butter
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
Freshly ground black pepper
Place your Ooni sizzler pan inside the oven to preheat for a couple of minutes. Once the pan is warm, remove and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the sprouts, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt. Use tongs or a metal spoon to carefully coat the sprouts in the butter nutmeg mix.
Return the pan to the oven and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until the sprouts have softened and are lightly browned – be sure to turn the pan halfway and toss the sprouts every so often to ensure they cook evenly and don’t burn.
Remove the pan from the oven, and finish with a garnish of freshly ground black pepper. The sprouts can be served right from the pan – use the Sizzler’s fitted wooden board to rest the hot pan on your dining table.
