First Monday Favorites – April 2017

Heavy whipping cream, Irish butter, and Jameson Irish Whiskey make these mussels delightfully decadent and sinfully irresistible.

Some really great recipes have come out of my kitchen over the past month, including one for Twice Cooked Potatoes with Spicy Ketchup, as well as one for a green veggie-packed Spring Green Quiche, however, I think my First Monday Favorites recipe for the month of March is without a doubt the one for these Drunken Irish Mussels. I am always amazed when a few basic ingredients can turn something very simple into something over-the-top spectacular, and these mussels are nothing short of spectacular. They make just as great of a meal as they do an appetizer, making them the perfect Fish Friday meal after a long week. Just make sure to serve them with thick slices of crusty bread so that you can sop up every last bit of the delicious liquid these little beauties are cooked in. You can find the original recipe for these Irish whiskey and cream drenched mussels HERE.

    Thanks so much for linking this to First Monday Favorites. Although, I’m not too fond of mussels, but I’d be willing to give these a try. They do sound good.

    • I’m not a huge fan of them without them being all trashed up! It’s really all about the sauce!!!

  • Searchingforspice

    Unfortunately I can’t eat shellfish but they look beautiful! I’d love to try them if I could.

    • I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t eat shellfish…I hope I never have to find out!

  • Tameka Wells

    I look forward to your post ever week. Look delish as always!

  • Alba Garza

    I have never used mussels in a dish. I am having fun seeing your post and learning from your cooking.

    • They are so easy…they just take about four to five minutes to steam in almost any liquid. Very versatile!

  • I’ve never had mussels, but the plate looks delish! My favorite will have to be the cacao nib muffins! I just want to take a bite out of it soooo bad!

  • Tia

    Yes you have been cooking up a storm and the recipes all look so good. I love mussels and would love to try your take on it.

    • Hope you get a chance to Tia…these are pretty quick to make and so freakin’ good!

  • I adore seafood and this dish looks delicious! Just give me a bowl and after I’m done I’m sucking all the cream out of the bowl lol.

  • Chimee Ahaiwe

    I love mussels but never thought to make them myself. Gonna have to try bc they look delicious!

    • I hope you do try this recipe Chimee…so simple and delicious!

  • One day I’m going to make one of your recipes. I’ve never had mussels…at least I don’t think!

    • You should try them. Mussels are really all about the sauce and dipping bread into it!
