Easy & Delicious Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

"This is a delicious,cheap,easy and you can prepare this ahead of time... AWESOME . When we get our limit for the day, and have extra after the feast, I prepare this (either the 'stuffing' or the stuffed mushrooms) easily. Set it in the fridge overnight. It's super simple/cheap (requirements) and very impressive. If you can get out and catch your own crab..it makes this a very cheap dish."

Ready In:
24-36 appetizers




  • Wash and take the stems out of the mushrooms,set aside.
  • Combine green onions,garlic,margarine,cream cheese, and seasoning in a bowl and microwave on high for 1 min, stir, microwave again for 1 minute.
  • Stir and add crab, mushrooms and parmesan.
  • At this point, the mixture should be fairly thick,(and not too buttery, you'll be able to tell if you see it on the edges of the bowl -- if you see 'too much' add some bread crumbs for a better outcome) You want a thick porridge like consistency at this point.
  • You could now store this mixture or if you had stuffed the mushrooms -- they can be refrigerated and heated and served the next day.
  • Stuff mushroom caps and top with additional sprinkle of bread crumbs and/or cheese, if desired.
  • Heat at 375 for 10-20 mins, or until bubbling hot.
  • Let rest for about 5-10 mins coz the fillings are gonna be HOT!
  • The reason this recipe is so easy is because steps can be done ahead of time and it's still turns out delicious every single time we do this. Oh -- and it's SOOOO versatile -- got one ingredient but not other? -- change it -- it's still great :).

<p>I post what I cook. It's an eclectic, and hopefully simple collection of recipes. I'd love to post most of what I cook, but frankly I'm not good at the measurements and I tend to be a 'add a dash of this and that' kinda cook.&nbsp;As a&nbsp;result, I can be a little lazy in posting recipes.&nbsp;I strive to make large meals that don't cost a lot, I've got 4 kids. Yes they eat what I post :)&nbsp; My main goal these days is to get the most out of what we pay for groceries...with 5 large eaters &nbsp;me, we're&nbsp;on a 'below low income level' budget, it's important to buy cheap and cook around the ingredients. Some recipes come from&nbsp;splurges ;)&nbsp; Use the recipes as a guidline and modify to suit your tastes.</p>
