Last night we had a lovely New Year's Eve dinner by candlelight (the kids think eating in the dark is truly exciting). In the spirit of how we used to do New Year's Eve when I was a kid, we had a dinner of finger-food appetizers. Stuffed mushrooms sounded like a more grown-up option to go with our little smokies wrapped in crescent rolls for the kids. I ended up creating a great recipe for stuffed mushrooms so I thought I'd pass it along.
Cream Cheese Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
12 Large White Mushrooms
6 oz. Whipped Cream Cheese (because it's softer and lighter)
1 Tbls Cream or Milk
1/4 cup Crab meat
1/4 cup green onions chopped small, use some of the greens - it's about 5 green onions
2 garlic cloves minced
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese + some for the tops
2. In a bowl, combine all the rest of the ingredients until well-mixed.
5. Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes until the cheese starts to brown.
These were SO good, but also quite rich. Unless you are a person who can handle lots of really rich food, I doubt anyone would eat more than about two of these, so plan accordingly.
