Recipe by Danny Serfer, owner/executive chef, Blue Collar

Here's what you need:

  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 beers (plus however many extra beers you personally need to get through cooking things)
  • 5lbs mussels
  • 5lbs hot Italian sausage links
  • 1lb blue cheese
  • 10 cloves garlic, chopped

Let the garlic simmer in olive oil for a couple minutes, and if you're not a wuss like those CFL players, throw in a dash of chili pepper flakes.

Douse everything in two cans of your favorite craft beer -- this one's a dark stout.

Smother said mussels in the entire pound of crumbled blue cheese. Seafood is healthy!

A trick you should attempt with every meal ever from now on: chop up a stick of butter, throw it on top, then cover for about 5 minutes.

Keep it just under a boil, and check to make sure all those suckers opened.
