Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring, until starting to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; pour off the fat from the pan and wipe out any remaining fat.
  2. Add oil to the pan and heat over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until just starting to brown, 30 seconds to 4 minutes.
  3. Add cider, vinegar, sage, salt and pepper; bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in mussels. Cover and cook just until the mussels have opened, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat (discard any unopened mussels). Stir in the bacon. Serve with the sauce from the pan.
