  • Grill the bacon until crispy, then set aside. Wait until they’ve cooled, cut the bacon into strips.
  • Place the mussels, garlic, bay leaf, onion & white wine in a large pod and over with a lid. Place on the stove for 6 minutes, shaking the pot a couple of times during the cooking.
  • The mussels should have all opened, remove any that remain closed.
  • Add the cream, pepper and chopped parsley and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the strips of bacon.
  • Place in the middle of the table in the pot they were cooked in.
  • Serve with crusty bread to soak up the scrumptious sauce.
  • Brian’s Tips:
  • If any mussels don’t open when cooked dispose of them !
