A recipe post? Say whaaaaaat?!
It’s happening. Get on board people.
So I’ve never made muscles before, and decided Valentines Day was a good day to give it a whirl. Because nothing says romance like a meal you could possibly screw up and end up eating McDonalds.
Maybe it does.
This is a combination of a couple different recipes I found, but each one with a French feel to them.
3 pounds of mussels
7 tablespoons of butter
3 green onions
5 garlic cloves
8-10 sprigs of thyme
1 cup of white wine
2 cups of heavy cream
1/4 cup of parsley
salt and pepper to taste
-Was mussels under cold water. Toss out any that are opened. *Some may have a little “beard” that you want to rip off.*
-In a large pot or large Dutch oven, heat the butter over medium heat until melted.
-Increase the heat to high, and add the green onions, garlic and thyme. Get ready for your house to smell amazing. Sauté for 1-2 minutes.
-Add mussels and cover. These bad boys cook super quickly so don’t walk away. You’re looking at about 5-10 minutes at most.
-Take out the thyme sprigs.
-Pour in the cream, white wine, parsley, salt and pepper.
-Mix gently, you’re folding more than mixing.
-Give the sauce a taste, if you think it needs more salt, add it.
We loved these so much and it wasn’t tough to make at all! Be sure to let me know if you make them!
