Method

Wash and clean some Brussels sprouts, drain them well and cook them in boiling salted water on a quick fire for about a quarter of an hour. Meanwhile, put in a small saucepan a piece of butter the size of an egg and a spoonful of flour and cook this for two minutes, stirring and mixing well; add about a pint of milk, bring to the boil and let it thicken; it is then time to add seasoning, a little grated nutmeg, the juice of a lemon and grated cheese. Then put your sprouts (well drained once more) in the sauce and cook a little more on a slow fire, bringing to the boil.
