Got lucky with a great batch of mussels, they have been hit and miss lately. This was my first time were every mussel in the bag got used. No dead ones, all of them opened :woohoo:

This has to be one of the quickest meals off the Egg, and the results are amazing

Some pics
The raws, just bacon, onion and some shrooms

    Say...I have not cooked sweet taters like that. How did you like them?

    Great looking meal. About how long did the potatoes have to cook sliced like that? Seems like a quick way when you don't have much time.

    I have been nuking the taters and finishing them on the Egg.
    They have been turning out great, I can get that little char crust which I love

    They are real quick, after a short nuke, then finished on the egg :)

    Shane, that's a pretty nice combination of flavours, did you boil the sweet potatoes first or just grilled them direct?

    Great looking meal, Shane. What was in the sauce for the mussels? Just cream or something else?

    Thanks Jason
    I used 1/2 a beer in with all the goodness from the bacon/onion/shrooms. :)
    There was also some butter in there.

  • Your mussels look perfect. Yum!

    Did you see where the mussels were from on the tag? Usually when I get some good ones, I try to get them from the same farm the next time.

    Hi Faith
    Thanks
    These mussels usually come from PEI.
    Our seafood selection,at our local supermarket,would make you cry :laugh:
    Went for more today, and they don't seem as fresh.
    Will see how many get tossed :)
