Shallots and garlic sautéed in butter
Throw in bacon
Cook bacon to liking - keep it crispy or soft, however you prefer Throw in mussels - amount is up to you depending on your group
Note: Make sure they're clean!!
The mussels should open when they're cooked Add beer - the kind your choice but keep it light and sweet, a heavy beer won't work as well Add more butter and season - lemon and sea salt with any herbs you have at home - scallions, green onion, terragon all work A bit of horseradish on top - either fresh or prepared with vinegar Grilled bread is a great side or eat it as a soup Prep time - mussels open in 3-5 minutes! Great for a party when you don't want to spend too much time I'm the kitchen.
