Here’s something to try for an easy, tasty dinner this weekend! I finally figured out a great combination for cooking mussels.    They are so easy to make at home and are ready very quickly!

Here’s what to do:

In a deep pot, saute diced onions and garlic in butter.   Add salt and crushed red pepper flakes to taste.  Once the onions are soft and translucent,  add 1 cup of white wine.   Just choose one where you like the taste making sure it’s not too sweet.  I have used pinot grigio, chardonnay, and sauvignon blanc.  Add in 3/4 cup of water and then add 2 lbs of fresh, live mussels to the pot and cover.  Note: Before I add in the mussels I rinse them off and discard any that have already opened.   Allow to steam for 10-15 minutes.

That’s it!  I love them with crispy french fries (as they are served in Belgium) – yum!

Enjoy!
