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.
