White Wine and Garlic Mussels

Some of the feedback that I've gotten from my friends is that they prefer to cook things that are quick and easy.  So here are some mussels that I picked up at Kroger Marketplace - it's just so close to my house!  And again, the brand is Private Selection.  Can you believe this 16 ounce box was on sale in the frozen seafood section for under $4?  Girls, some of you have paid a bit more for this appetizer at nice restaurants in town like So, Salut, and Ciao Baci.  Look at how easily you can have the same gourmet tapas in your own kitchen.
All you have to do is open the package, empty the mussels into a medium saucepan, turn the heat up to high, and put the lid on.  Sometimes I use my favorite little dutch oven.  After about 4 minutes, I turn the heat to medium for another 4 minutes.  Then, I remove the lid and stir.  By then, most of the mussels will be opened.  For this package, maybe 3 did not open, so I threw them in the trash.  You're not supposed to try to open those.  Could be bad for you.  But I still had about 22 that did open for me.
