My family loves this. It's a comfort food with an exotic twist.

NOTE: I just grate the nutmeg over the skillet, don't measure it, and sometimes add a little ground cinnamon, as well. I start out with 1/4 tsp of garlic powder and oregano, taste it after it has simmered awhile and decide if it needs more.
