This is an incredible meal, it makes everybody happy and the sauce is a perfect for bread dipping and it’s fairly inexpensive. Can’t think of a better dish to serve at a dinner party or for my hungry family after a baseball game. It’s that easy!

INGREDIENTS

• 4 lbs mussels
• 2 cups dry white wine
• 4 large shallots, finely chopped
• 3 garlic gloves, finely chopped
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 cup, heavy whipping cream
• Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
• 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
• I loaf crusty French bread.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. In a large colander, scrub and pull any beards from the mussels and let drain
2. In a Dutch oven or pot Large enough to hold the mussels and be able to stir the ingredients, over medium heat, melt the butter and as the olive oil.
3. Add the shallot and garlic, cook and stir until fragrant. About 2-3 minutes. Add the wine and bring to a boil and then immediately reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 3-5 minutes.
4. Add the mussels and stir to incorporate the butter, oil, shallots and garlic. Cover and cook for 5-7 minutes. Take off the heat, stir and cover for an additional five minutes. This will allow additional mussels to open. Discard any mussels that do not open.
