You don't have to spend the whole day in the kitchen to make these savory morsels. They are ready to bake in 15 minutes. Make ahead, cover, and refrigerate before a party. Add a few minutes to the bake time until they are thoroughly heated and golden.
15 large mushrooms, stems removed and reserved
2 tablespoons butter, divided
1/3 cup onion, chopped
3/4 teaspoon seafood seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (6-oz.) can crabmeat, drained
1 egg, beaten
1/2 slice firm white bread, crumbled
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
How to Make It
Chop mushroom stems. Butter a 13"x9" baking pan using one tablespoon butter. Place mushroom caps in prepared pan.
Melt remaining butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped stems, onion, seafood seasoning, salt and pepper; cook, stirring often, 5 minutes or until tender.
Combine crabmeat, egg and bread crumbs in a large bowl, stirring well. Add mushroom mixture and 2 tablespoons cheese, stirring well. Spoon, filling evenly, into mushroom caps; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden.
"Absolutely Phenomenal" I was told. I substituted crumbled Ritz crackers for the breadcrumbs and used Old Bay for Seafood Seasoning. Probably overdid the Parmesan to 1/2 c. but it was exquisite flavor on the outcome. Once they came out of the oven browned and slightly crisp on top, I sprinkled again with Old Bay and served warm.
