How to make it

  • 1. Make sure the mussels are well scrubbed and the “beards” cleaned off. Let them sit out a while and come to room temp.
  • 2. In a large pot melt the butter and saute the onion, bacon and celery until just cooked through. Put the bacon in first and give it a minute or two extra.
  • 3. Turn up the stove and add everything but the mussels.
  • 4. When the pot starts to just simmer add the room temp mussels, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about ten minutes, until all the mussels open.
  • 5. Discard the Bay leaf and any mussels that didn’t open and serve mussels and broth in large soup bowls.
  • This is really great with French bread, baguettes or Pita bread and a good dry white wine. Bon Apatite.
