Last night I made Black Mussels as part of a first course entree for a dinner birthday party. I'm sharing it here because it was truly amazing and easy. In addition to the recipe I added sweet white onion slices and an 1/8th cup bread crumb mixture into the wine broth to add a bit more flavor to the steaming process. It is always "taking a chance" making something for the first time for a special event, but I always have luck doing anything that involves an Ina Garten recipe.

Serving them straight to the table in a cast iron skillet keeps the mussels warm.
Serve with slices of baked rustic bread.
