Cider-Braised Mussels with Bacon

"Mussels take about 5 minutes to cook, but they impress everyone you serve. I love the mix of sweet and meaty flavors the cider and bacon add to briny mussels in this dish. My favorite way to eat them is straight out of the pot with my fingers―no silverware―just a loaf of bread and some paper towels."
