Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Here is your recipe which will make delicious mushroom appetizers:
Purchase 36 medium white or 18 large portabello mushrooms. I did only 18 medium so I froze 1/2 of my "stuffing" after I made it!

You will also need: 1 12 oz package lump crab meat, 1/2 cup fine breadcrumbs, 2 shallots or cut up 2 green onions, 1/2 of a diced green pepper, 1/2 of a diced red pepper, 2 eggs, pinch of black pepper, 1/2 tsp garlic salt, 1/4 cup Parmesan, 1/4 cup Romano, and mixed together: 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1/4 cup of melted butter which will be poured over the tops at the end.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees......in a medium bowl place clean diced crab meat, add peppers, onions, bread crumbs, pepper, garlic salt, eggs and Parmesan and Romano cheese. After stuffing mushroom caps by hand, pour lemon juice and butter over all. I like to finish with a cup of shredded Mozzarella and Colby cheese. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.

You've had them in restaurants....make them at home!

These sound delicious! How long should I cook them? They are baked and not broiled, correct? Susan
