French Country Mussels

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Tebo3759

A quick and tasty mussel dish. The juices must be sopped up with a good french bread. Serves 4 but 2 can handle it with no problem usually.

Absolutely fantastic. Living on Cape Cod, we have access to many mussel beds and I can't wait until late Spring and Summer to go "musselling" and invite family over for a feast. Don't change this recipe one iota.
