Very Easy Baked Tahong

I experimented with a Baked Tahong recipe tonight.  It only took me 20 minutes from start to finish.

My old recipe is quite time consuming so I am sharing this new one.

It is a very "jeje" (meaning bakya) tasting dish like the ones you would eat at Dampa.  I prefer this taste, though.

Baked Tahong

1 K. large mussels
1/2 C. water
100 gr. Dari Creme margarine, softened
100 gr. Magnolia Quickmelt Cheese, grated
1 head garlic, crushed
1/4 c. fine breadcrumbs

Preheat oven at 350F.
Put the mussels in a large pan with water. Cover and cook until the shells open.  Remove from heat.
Discard one side of the shell and remove the beardlike "thing" from the meat.
Combine the margarine, cheese and garlic in a bowl.
Spread over the mussels and put on a baking tray.
Sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
Bake for 8 minutes or until bubbly.
Do not overcook.
