Basic Crab and Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
This recipe makes 12 servings
- Portion size: 12
Bake approx 15 - 20 minutes until mushroom caps appear cooked. Set oven to broil and just brown the tops a bit, careful not to melt the cream cheese into molten lava. Remove stuffed mushrooms and place on plates, careful not to bring to much butter with them. Be careful they are hot. Serve after a few minutes cooling time. What to do with the excess stuffing? Well it is excellent in an omelet! Also makes nice tea sandwiches.
