    Asparagus with Spicy Nutmeg Butter Asparagus with Spicy Nutmeg Butter

    If you're looking for a way to put pizzazz in your vegetables, look no further. Spicy Nutmeg Butter gives a distinctive warm flavor to asparagus spears.

    Prep: 5 min - Cook: 4-6 min

    1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Salt
    1/8 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Red Pepper
    2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
    30 medum fresh asparagus spears (about 2 bunches)
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted (optional)

    1. Preheat broiler. Stir nutmeg, garlic salt, and red pepper into melted butter. Set aside.

    2. Wash asparagus and break off stalks as far down as they snap easily, about 1-2 inches from ends. Arrange asparagus in a single layer on a large, rimmed baking pan lined with foil; drizzle with oil and roll to coat.

    3. Broil asparagus 4-6 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning once. Place in a serving dish and pour seasoned butter over asparagus. Garnish with nuts, if desired.

    Makes 5 servings
