What should I serve with mussels?
I'm making a batch of moules marinieres tomorrow night for my extended family, but don't know what would go well alongside the mussels. I don't want to do the boring-old fries. Anyone have any creative ideas as to what would make a great side dish? Thanks!
Agreed. If you want to avoid fries, then crusty bread is the way to go. If you want to take it a bit further, maybe a nice garlic bread or gruyere toast.
If you wanted to stick with the potato family but are bored with fries, then maybe some roasted fingerlings. But I really think it's important to have something you can dunk in the broth!
Parmesan potato wedges are a different take on fries. They would be good with the mussels and I am making that menu tomorrow night for dinner.
Parmesan Potato Wedges
5 medium russet potatoes, cut in about 6 wedges each
1/2 stick butter, melted
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Spread on a greased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated425 degree oven for about 30 minutes. Turn occasionally so they don't burn. The potatoes should be tender and lightly browned.
