Nutmeg Powder is used in a variety of sweet and savory recipes. Sweet potatoes can be baked and then served with butter, sour cream, a drizzle of maple syrup and a little sprinkle of ground nutmeg on top for a delicious and easy side dish for chicken or meat. You can add a little bit of nutmeg to a milkshake or yogurt smoothie to give it an unexpected flavor boost. White sauces such as bechamel or mornay, a white sauce with cheese added, are typically sprinkled with organic nutmeg before being cooked in the oven. These sauces can cover vegetables such as cauliflower or broccoli, or they make wonderful toppings to a variety of Greek main dishes such as moussaka, a lamb and eggplant dish, or pistachio, a pasta dish that uses a marinara sauce alternately layered with pasta and topped with the white sauce. Cheesecake is especially flavorful when Nutmeg Spice is added to the cheese filling. Apple pies and other fruit crisps need a touch of grated whole nutmeg to bring out the flavor in the fruit.
