My china cabinet is full of nice containers and all kinds of specific crockery for certain dishes. Also these super nice "snail bowls". Now not everyone is a big fan of escargots, that is a thing for some people. But the method of preparation with lots of garlic butter and baguette appeals to a lot of people. We make a seafood version with these garlic butter mussels from the oven. And I can tell you that you are going to dip every compartment of this bowl with your baguette! Mussels au gratin with garlic butter or herb butter.

I was also allowed to make this recipe again in collaboration with Mussels straight from Zeeland. A collaboration that I am certainly proud of, because how traditionally Dutch is this product? Straight from our own Oosterschelde and the beautiful Zeeland right on your plate. Another easy and super tasty recipe. Eating mussels is therefore not as exciting as some people think. And extremely versatile, serve this fine dish with your (Christmas) dinner and score high.

We use grated Gruyere, which is a cheese with a fairly pronounced taste. The cheese melts well and mixes wonderfully with the mussels and garlic butter. We do not use any salt in this recipe because there is already enough in the cheese, but also the samphire that I chopped into small pieces for the butter. A very surprising recipe, which certainly does not look out of place on your Christmas table! Very easy and so made.

The grated Gruyere is a delicious cheese that blends perfectly with the mussels and garlic butter. To add even more flavor, I also chop small pieces of samphire and mix them into the butter. This creates a surprising recipe that should definitely not be missing on your Christmas table. No salt is necessary, because the cheese and samphire already provide enough flavor. With this simple preparation you can create a delicious dish on the table in no time that everyone will enjoy!

Here you will find the complete recipe with all the ingredients you need. I hope you have fun preparing the dish below.

You need:

4 snail cups


  • 24 Zeeland mussels - cooked
  • 200 gram grated Gruyère
  • 4 twigs samphire - chopped into small pieces
  • 100 gram butter
  • 3 twigs Parsley - finely chopped
  • 4 toes Garlic
  • peper
  • 1 baguette

Nice and easy: click on the logo of your favorite supermarket to add the ingredients.

And this is how you make it:

  • Grab a bowl and put the butter in it. Squeeze the garlic cloves into the bowl, add some freshly ground pepper and the samphire and parsley, chopped into small pieces.
  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. While it is preheating, place the container with the butter in it and let the butter soften.
  • When the butter is soft, remove it from the oven and mix well with a fork. Spoon a teaspoon of this butter mix into each hole in the snail dish.
  • Cook the mussels in a pan until all the shells are open and you can remove the mussels. (this is done in about 3 minutes) Put a mussel in each hole of the snail dish.
  • Sprinkle the gruyère over the ramekins and spoon some more of the garlic butter over the ramekins. Place in the oven until the cheese has melted and serve with the baguette.
  • Delicious bites!

Like me mussel fan? Well, here are some top picks for you:

How about these fried mussels with garlic sauce.

But this Italian Nduja mussel pasta is also spicy and delicious! 

Zeeland mussels in curry sauce is also a very good idea.
