Mussels with Blue Cheese and Portuguese Vinho Verde

When you first think of mussels you do not think...cheese! Guess what? It works! You will be so surprised at just how well it complements the mussels. Adding bacon just elevates this recipe to celestial heights. I swear you will want to drink this sauce! Do not forget to have plenty of crusty bread to mop up all of the lovely sauce. Take it a step further and fry up some crispy, thin french fries "frites". Serves 2 as a main meal or 4 as a starter. Easy enough for a weeknight and elegant enough for company. OH MY YUMMMM. Enjoy xoxo
