Capt. Phil's Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by alligirl

Captain Phil Harris of "Deadliest Catch" made this recipe on the series "After the Catch"; I thought they looked interesting. I would suggest garlic and herb cream cheese, Aloette or Boursin, though you may use what you have handy and suits you. I would think more shredded cheese would be necessary for 40 mushroom caps also. Taken from

These are very good! I used light chive & onion cream cheese and sharp cheddar on top. I did make a change to the baking method - instead of baking, filling, then broiling, I just filled, topped, and baked for 15 minutes at 350. The filling was piping hot and though the mushrooms still had a little "tooth" to them, I liked them that way. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
