Baked  Mussels


For the Mussels:

  • 1 pound mussels
  • 0.5 cup pecorino cheese
  • 0.25 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • black pepper


Wash the mussels under fresh water.

With a knife, open each mussel and leave the fruit on one half of the shell.

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the batter... the batter will be rather soft.

Place all  the mussels on a baking sheet and with a teaspon put some batter on each mussel to completely cover the meat/fruit.

Bake for about 15-20 mins at 400F on the top shelf of the oven or until the batter turns golden/light brown.

Serve hot.
