This is a classic dish in Neapolitan cuisine. The mussel shells create the perfect finger food. Pair with a well chilled, dry white wine to get an evening among friends started.
This was an easy appetizer that we enjoyed. You must however balance the baking time with the size of the mussels. If your mussels are very small they can dry out before the breadcrumbs are brown. Thanks for posting the recipe - 12 Sep 2012
