Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Mushrooms!

Well I missed it. I love mushrooms and yesterday was National Stuffed Mushroom day.

A day for stuffed mushrooms? Yep. Who knows who started this day, but hey, I love stuffed mushrooms! I like them stuffed with oysters – filled with pinenuts and parm and garlic – or this way!

Enticed? Good!

Here’s How to Do it:

Remove the stems from the mushrooms. Set them aside for another use (like chopped in an omelet).

Pour about a teaspoon of melted butter into each cap.

In a large bowl, mix the remaining ingredients, except the chives and parmesan.

Place spoonfuls of the crab mixture evenly into each cap.

Using a microplane, grate the cheese over each mushroom –

about 1 heaping teaspoon full.

Bake the mushrooms for about 25 – 30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.
