 Ingredients List

  • 3 Dozen mussels
  • 1/2 c Crushed tomatoes
  • 2 c Bread crumbs
  • 4 tb Grated cheese

Scrub mussels with a brush, pull off beards. Prepare a fry pan with a tight

unopened mussels. Remove mussels and open shells to lay flat. Do not break
apart. Place one mussel in each shell, cover with prepared stuffing.
Squeeze 1 T of crushed tomatoes on each mussel. Sprinkle with chopped
parsley. Drizzle with olive oil and remaining liquid from steam process to
moisten bread crumbs. Bake at 375 degrees until golden brown, about 15-20
minutes. Serve hot.
