A perfect party-ready bite.

Even though we could devour every last one of these hearty, stuffed mussels on our own, we recommend making this feast a group activity.

PreparationMusselsStep 1Heat oil in large heavy pot over medium. Cook garlic, stirring often, until golden, about 2 minutes. Add parsley, mussels, wine, and red pepper flakes; stir to coat. Cover and cook, stirring halfway through, until mussels open, about 4 minutes. Uncover and transfer opened mussels to a large bowl with a slotted spoon. If any mussels are still closed, cover pot again and cook until opened, about 1 minute more. Transfer open mussels to bowl; discard any that remain closed. Chill mussels until ready to assemble. Strain cooking liquid; discard solids. Measure out 3 cups mussel stock; add water if short. Reserve pot.

Rice and AssemblyStep 2Heat oil in reserved pot over medium-low. Cook pepperoni, stirring often, until some fat has cooked out and oil is bright red, about 4 minutes. Add anchovy, tomato paste, and oregano. Cook, stirring often, until tomato paste darkens slightly, about 3 minutes. Add onion and garlic and cook, still stirring often, until onion is soft, about 4 minutes.

Step 3Increase heat to medium-high and add wine. Cook, stirring, until wine is evaporated, about 3 minutes. Stir in rice and reserved mussel stock. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, stirring often, until stock is absorbed and rice is al dente, 20–25 minutes.

Step 4Remove pot from heat and cover with lid; let stand 20 minutes. Uncover and stir in lemon juice and sugar. Chill pepperoni rice at least 30 minutes.Do Ahead:Rice can be made 3 days ahead. Let cool, then cover and chill.Step 5Place racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 400°. Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with lightly crumpled foil (to help keep mussel shells upright). Remove top shells from mussels (pry apart and twist at the hinge). Using a paring knife, loosen meat from bottom shells. Spoon 1 Tbsp. pepperoni rice over each mussel and shape into a mound. Divide mussels, stuffed side up, between baking sheets. Bake until warmed through, 5–8 minutes. Remove from oven; heat broiler.

Step 6One baking sheet at a time, broil mussels on upper rack until tops are golden brown, 5–7 minutes (watch closely; broilers vary dramatically in power).Step 7Transfer mussels to a platter and drizzle with aioli. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over.

Make the Absolute Most of Your Turkey Bones With Bone ButterBefore you stick them in a stockpot, slowly cook poultry bones in butter to give your gravy, stuffing, and other dishes a poultry-rich boost. Now THIS is a must try!

The Best Gluten-Free Turkey GravyGlutinous rice flour, also known as mochiko or sweet rice flour, makes an excellent gluten-free gravy for Thanksgiving or any holiday feast. Like wheat flour, mochiko can be toasted in fat to create a roux, which lends the finished gravy robust flavor that other starches, like cornstarch, just can’t match. This gravy also has a silky texture and great body like any gravy should. Here, miso and apple cider vinegar extend the flavor, making it both brighter and more savory. My husband who cooks the bird and the gravy also uses brown rice flour. Works beautifully.
