Baked Mussels with Butter, Cheese and Garlic
This is the simplest version of Baked Mussels there is.
Son #2 loves it and could probably eat a couple of dozens if I let him!
This dish is exquisite with freshly steamed mussels, but you could definitely use pre-cooked frozen mussels in a pinch (which is what I did today).
BAKED MUSSELS WITH BUTTER, CHEESE AND GARLIC
36 cooked mussels on the half-shell
3 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp. butter
2x2x2 inch cube of sharp cheese
2 tbsp. olive oil
1. Put all ingredients except mussels in a food processor and pulse until you make a paste.
2. Put about 1/2 tsp. of the paste on each mussel.
3. Bake in a 400 oven for 15 minutes until the topping is sightly brown.
