Step by step recipe

1 Mussels with beurre d'escargot : Photo of step #1Cook the mussels in a little boiling salted water for 1 or 2 minutes, just until they open.

For a more delicate flavour, you can also cook them like for mussels marinière.

Shell the mussels.
3 min.
2 Mussels with beurre d'escargot : Photo of step #2Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).

Put each mussel in a little paper petit-four case.
5 min.
3 Mussels with beurre d'escargot : Photo of step #3Arrange the paper cases in an oven-proof dish. 2 min.
4 Mussels with beurre d'escargot : Photo of step #4Cut small slices of 100 g Beurre d'escargot. 3 min.
5 Mussels with beurre d'escargot : Photo of step #5Sit a morsel of beurre d'escargot on top of each mussel. 3 min.
6 Mussels with beurre d'escargot : Photo of step #6Cook in the oven for 5 or 6 minutes at the most. Above all, do not let the butter brown.

Serve piping hot.
5 min.

Remarks

If you don't have any paper cases, you can use half a mussel shell instead, but this is less practical as the capacity is generally a bit small.

Another more elegant solution, though rather more complicated, is to make little cases out of puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée).
