A real simple and quick recipe to be enjoyed before, during, or after any game.
(1) 2 pound box New Zealand Greenshell Mussels in the half shell, thawed
Pesto i.e., Traditional Basil Sun Dried Tomato
Three Cheese Blend, Shredded
Simply layout the thawed mussels on a baking sheet when at home and preheat oven to 400 degrees. When camping I use a large Cast Iron Skillet and tent it with foil over the fire.
Then be creative and use any combination of ingredients to your liking. Put as much or as little on top of each mussel and bake for ten to fifteen minutes.
Name them as you create. Here are some examples:
The Italiano Sun Dried Tomato Pesto, Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
The Buffalo Your favorite Buffalo Sauce, Blue Cheese Crumble
The Pesto Homemade or store Pesto Sauce. We like Traditional Basil
The Diablo Romano or 3 Cheeses, Red Pepper Flakes, Olive Oil
The Garlic Garlic, Chopped and melted Butter, Parsley
These all serve well as an appetizer for any occasion. ENJOY!!!
