Baked Tahong (Baked Mussels)

kept byt.vintage

Baked Tahong or Baked Mussels is a very simple appetizer or cocktail dish that is made out of baked mussels and cheese. A popular hit in Philippine celebrations such as birthdays, fiestas and even family gathering as it is really easy to prepare, it is inexpensive (depends on where you are) and the visual presentation is stunning.

Traditionally this is prepared with lots of butter and cheese baked together with lots of bread crumbs, I find that to be a bit overpowering in taste and it masks the true flavour of mussels, so in this recipe we will be using the same ingredients but as a complement to the flavours, we will also pan fry the bread crumbs to give it a crunchy texture. So here is my improved version of the Filipino classic.

Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 30 mins
Serves: 20 pcs


20 pcs large green mussels
½ cup bread crumbs (a non gluten variety can be used)
¼ cup butter
½ cup Colby cheese or any quick melting cheese, grated
¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp parsley, chopped
