A simple recipe that's my family's favorite. You can add red pepper flakes if you like. Serve with crusty bread to soak up the juice.

I will make it again. The recipe was easy to follow. This was delicious. I omitted the butter and the clam juice. I also added red pepper flakes, which gave it a little more zest. Read More

I just made this when I went to the beach. I didn't have any clam juice but did add the red pepper flakes. I added some leftover chopped spam (b/c I didn't have any bacon) when I was sautéing the onions. Other additions were adding fresh oregano and basil and 1/4 block cream cheese at the end that had some hot pepper jelly on top. I then sprinkled some truffle powder in. I then put the mussels in for the last few minutes, poured over hot egg noodles and it was DELISH!!! Brought some mussels home to make again! Read More
