Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms: Your Fail-Proof Holiday App
Looking for a last minute appetizer to serve at your New Year’s Eve bash or New Year’s Day dinner? (If you’re thinking, wow, this girl just uses the new year as an excuse for one last chance to pig out, YES, you are right, what’s your point?)
These stuffed mushrooms are IT. Everyone loves a stuffed mush at a party, and these ones are especially luxurious thanks to the fact that they’re stuffed with crab! Despite their fanciness, they take about 10 minutes to put together and are almost impossible to mess up.
Festive Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
16-20 crimini mushrooms, cleaned and de-stemmed
10oz shredded crab meat
1/4 cup shredded (good!) parmesan
1/8 cup bread crumbs
1/8 cup mayo
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/3 teaspoon ground cloves
dash of cayenne pepper
sea salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste
roughly chopped parsley, 1 tsp paprika, and 1/8 cup extra shredded parm for topping
Preheat your oven to 350°.
Mix everything besides the mushrooms themselves in a bowl! Add your S&P to taste, and if the stuffing seems a little dry, add more mayo and mustard. Or if it seems a bit too wet, add more breadcrumbs and cheese.
Fill each crimini cap with a hearty scoop of the stuffing. Depending on how big your mushrooms are, you can make about 20, give or take. Sprinkle extra parm and paprika on top and bake for about 20 minutes until the tops are golden.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes – these guys will be HOT when fresh from the oven. Throw some parsley on top right before serving!
