Description

Mussels cooked in a white wine garlic-butter sauce served with sliced crusty bread for dipping. My husband’s favorite meal for two!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • ½ whole Onion, Chopped Fine
  • 3 whole Garlic Cloves, Minced
  • 1 cup White Wine
  • ½ teaspoons Thyme, Dried
  • 1 pound Mussels
  • 1 pinch Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 loaf Crusty Artisan Bread Of Choice

Preparation

Melt butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 3 minutes or until translucent. Add white wine, thyme and mussels. Stir and cover the pot for about 8-10 minutes. Discard any unopened mussels. Season with salt and pepper.

While mussels are cooking, place the bread on an oven rack for 8 minutes. Slice. Dump the pot into a bowl. Place bread around the outside edge. Serve and dip bread into the broth. Enjoy!

Now I just have to figure out how to make the sauce thicker. Surely it wouldn’t be so simple as adding a little flour. You think? Thanks for your note on email.

Oh my gosh – adding cream to the sauce (check out rivergirl10′s review!) and adding pasta – sounds FABULOUS!

I just made these tonight for dinner and they were SO good!!! I loved the broth, it was lemony, garlicky and absolutely delish! I will definitely make this again!

dishinanddish, I have made this several times right by
your recipe. It is excellent. We keep looking at the yummy sauce left over and decided this time to make angel hair pasta. I added heavy cream to the sauce after I removed the mussels. My husband and I moaned and groaned through the whole meal. I wish I knew how to make the sauce creamier. Thank you for sharing.
