Baked Mussels with Butter and Cheese Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 - 6 servings as an appetizer

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound fresh mussels
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated garlic
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup grated your favorite cheese
How to cook Baked Mussels with Butter and Cheese:
  • Wash the mussels several times. Place in a bowl and cover with water. Place in the fridge and allow to soak for several hours, changing the water every hour or so.
  • Wash the mussels again and pull off the beards. If they had been soaked sufficiently, the beards should come off easily.
  • Place the mussels in a baking tray and pop in a preheated 355°F (180°C) oven for about 3 minutes or just until the mussels partially open.
  • Let the mussels cool a bit, then break off the half shells, leaving the meat intact in the other half.
  • Heat the butter gently in a small saucepan just until it melts. Do NOT allow the cream to separate from the oil. Stir in the garlic.
  • Using a pastry brush, spread a little butter-garlic mixture on each mussel. Top with the grated cheese. Bake in a preheated 355°F (180°C) oven for about a minute or just until the cheese melts.
  • Serve the Baked Mussels with Butter and Cheese hot.

No, you don’t need salt because the cheese is salty enough. No, you don’t need pepper because the garlic will provide all the zing that the mussels need.
