  • 500 grams fresh mussels
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated garlic
  • thin slices of your favorite cheese


  • Follow the instructions on cleaning and preparing the mussels in the previous baked mussels recipe.
  • Heat the butter gently in a small saucepan just until it melts. Do NOT allow the cream to separate from the oil. Stir in the garlic.
  • Using a pastry brush, spread a little butter-garlic mixture on each mussel. Top with a slice of cheese. Bake in a preheated 180oC oven for about a minute or just until the cheese melts.
  • Serve the baked mussels with butter and cheese at once.
