  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 apple, chopped
  • 610 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup white wine, optional
  • 2lbs mussels, cleaned
  • 1 cup heavy cream, optional
  • Parsley, optional for serving


  1. Clean and remove beards from mussels.
  2. Discard any mussels that do not close when tapped against a hard surface or have cracks in them.
  3. Place chopped bacon in Instant Pot, select Saute setting.
  4. Allow the bacon to cook fully, releasing the grease into the IP. This will serve as the cooking fat for the vegetables.
  5. Add the onions, mushrooms, and apple and saute for 3-5 minutes until onions are translucent.
  6. Turn off the saute setting and carefully add the mussels to the Instant Pot.
  7. Select “Manual” for 6 minutes. Natural or quick release.
  8. Optional: Stir in the heavy cream and select the Saute setting. Cook until the cream starts to boil, then turn off the Instant Pot.
  9. Serve with a sprinkle of parsley.
