Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
These are absolute heaven,,Are great as an appetizer or justa little something else to go with a main meal. You may use Tuna in water ( Drained ) in place of the Crab. Either way WOW!!
Crimini Mushroom Buttons ,Wash with a damp paper towel and pull stems out and dice finely
2 8oz Cream Cheese
1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 Ribs Celery Finely diced
1/2 med Onion finely diced
2 Cans Crab Meat or Tuna
Fine Bread Crumbs
PepperJack cheese slices, cut small enough to cover the mushrooms when baked.
2 Tbsp Diced Garlic
Zest of 1/2 - 1 lemon
Mix together cream cheese, cheddar,onion,celery, crab meat or Tuna ,diced mushrooms and enough bread crumbs to make it stiff. Now take the mushroom caps and add a little garlic and butter in each one, now spoon in the cheese mixture and fill them up good .Place on a cookie sheet with room between each one and bake in a oven or on your smoker or grill on 250 degrees or until you get an inside temp of 170. Crab / Tuna will absorb alot of smoke so try and avoid wood if you can. Take them out put on your sliced pepperjack cheese and put back in the oven or smoker / Grill until cheese melts. Pull them out sprinkle on a little lemon zest,,,And ohhhh Weeee!!!!! Enjoy.
This recipe will make quite a few so you may want to start with a couple 8 oz boxes of mushrooms.
