“I know the title sounds a little pretentious, but these seriously are amazing. I've had many self-proclaimed Brussels sprout haters do a complete u-turn with this recipe. The best part is that it is so quick and just uses the microwave, so for big dinners where the oven is in use, this makes a great side!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean and halve the Brussels sprouts. Put them in a microwave safe dish and add a tablespoon or so of water. Cover and microwave on high for about five minutes. They should NOT be fully cooked.
  2. Core, then roughly chop the apples, leaving skin on.
  3. Mix the butter, sugar and nutmeg.
  4. Add the apples to the sprouts and cover with butter mixture. Return to microwave and microwave for 4-5 minutes until sprouts are cooked.
  5. Cooking time will vary depending on your microwave.
  6. Serve immediately. Great as leftovers too!
