  • 1-2 Lb. of Mussels, Cleaned and debarred
  • 2 24 Oz. of Jars Marinara; Victoria or Rao are good quality sauces
  • 1 Lb. of Ground Italian Sausage, hot or sweet
  • 4-5 Garlic Cloves, smashed and chopped
  • 1 Handful Roughly Chopped Flat Leaf Parsley, plus 1-2 tbsp chopped for garnish
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, optional
  • Loaf crusty bread, sliced
  • *Recommended--disposable rectangular tin tray


  1. Preheat Blackstone to medium high heat. Add sausage to cook completely. Use you Blackstone scraper or spatula to chop meat as you would taco meat.

  2. Place tin tray directly on clean side of the Blackstone, add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. About 2 tablespoons.

  3. Add garlic, crushed red pepper and a few whole pieces of parsley roughly chopped to the oil, including the stems. Shake tin or stir around to cook garlic 1-2 minutes or just until fragrant. Be sure not to burn garlic.

  4. Add the cooked sausage and marinara sauce to the tin and mix everything together. Let cook a few minutes, or until the sauce starts to bubble.

  5. Add the mussels into the sauce and mix well, spreading the mussels out evenly. Cover with foil and let cook 3-4 minutes, gently shaking pan a couple times during to help make room for mussels to open.

  6. Remove foil, mix mussels and allow them to cook 30 more seconds. This will help any mussels that need more room to open. Remove tin tray from heat, garnish with fresh chopped parsley and enjoy!


**Discard and do not eat any mussels that do not open.
Enjoy these with a loaf of crusty Italian bread or a French baguette sliced then toasted directly on the Blackstone. Using the Blackstone butter roller, place a stick of butter to melt in the bottom along with a few large cloves of garlic smashed and placed inside the roller. Do this before step 1. As the butter melts you will smell the garlic, which means your butter is ready! Roll each slice of bread across the butter roller then allow to toast to golden brown while your mussels cook. Enjoy dipping and scooping up the sauce and sausage with your bread.
