Over the Top Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by bratty

This was a creation of throwing stuff together one night when we had guests coming and I decided at the last minute I needed an appetizer. It was a total hit! They are now requested when we throw a party.

Boy, did these ever go over big! I definitey should have doubled the recipe. There plenty of stuffing so you can put a generous amount in each mushroom. The cheddar melted nicely over the top and was a very nice compliment to the rest of the ingredients. Thanks for sharing this great little appetizer, bratty. Can't wait to make them again.
