AN EASY MUSSELS RECIPE

Everyone’s over here like, working on their Superbowl menu, liiiike? and I’m like, what’s for Valentine’s Day dinner?!? Mussels, of course!   

Hello Hello! Wednesday, you’re beautiful! …that’s a lie.
It’s windy, it’s freezing cold, and it’s raining. ON the bright side; no snow. Yet.

Remind me again, why I haven’t moved to a very warm State? Duh!

More importantly, it’s been way too long since we discussed garlic butter. Right?! You know what’s up!

So in terms of discussing, I guess I’m just going to tell you that I made these mussels. In fact, I roasted DEEZ mussels. How’s that for better taste? Everything that is roasted becomes my new favorite. I used to hate green beans, but once I roasted them? WOOOOT! I was IN!

Same thing happened here.

My husband loves to slurrrrp up them mussels. ME? Not so much.

…until? … that’s right. Until the oven winked at me and said, Come hither, and use me. USE me so those mussels becometh the love of thy life .
She was right! BUT not before I added some garlic to it all. In butter form. Mixed in with bread crumbs. Err! Panko crumbs!

I swear that a little goes a long way and it really makes the mussels POP. The crunch, especially, blew my mind.

But it goes without saying that any type of garlic-butter combo is always the part I love in a recipe, and given my fascination with that, it was only a matter of time before I added it to all my seafood. And veg.

You know what, though? It’s even better when you add all of these pretty little mussels over a mound of pasta. SO GOOD!

ENJOY!

    should I use seafood broth instead of vegetable broth?
