Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
1 package large Mushrooms (about 12-15)
12 oz. real Crab (friends don’t let friends eat imitation crab meat)
2 tablespoons Garlic, minced
1/4 cup Onion, minced
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Remove stems from mushrooms and discard. Remove inside from caps (usually easiest with a spoon and a circular motion).
Mince half of the removed mushroom pieces and mix with crab, egg, garlic, parmesan cheese, and onion. Work in bread crumbs.
Spoon a portion of the mixture into the mushroom caps until just above the edge.
Place 1 tablespoon of melted butter (use stock for healthier option) in each cup in a muffin pan. Add stuffed mushrooms** and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove mushrooms from oven, add mozzarella on top (shredded or sliced) and return to oven on broil until cheese is melted (about 5 minutes).
Serve with your favorite side dishes.
*Add or remove your favorite seasonings or ingredients; this is a really flexible recipe and great for entertaining.
**For a nice browning on top, pour melted butter over stuffed mushrooms prior to baking.
NOTE: If you don’t like mushrooms or the people you are cooking for don’t like mushrooms, omit adding the minced mushroom pieces in the stuffing. You can also use the stuffing into bell peppers, baked potatoes, anything.
