More About This Recipe

  • Dear 2010, 

    You really flew by. It’s been fun, but I am so ready for 2011. 

    Best, Me.

    We’re so close to the end of the year, and I can’t help but think a little about all the food we’ve talked about here this year. It’s been incredible (and tasty!). And I’ve really appreciated all the comments and Facebook feedback from our readers too. Thank you all for following, and I look forward to a fabulous, delicious 2011.

    Now, on to the recipe: Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms.

    This is one of those appetizers that can easily be served as a precursor to an elegant dinner or a bite for cocktail party guests.

    These mushrooms are stuffed with a hearty crab filling and whole grain breadcrumbs, garlic and more. Sprinkled with Romano and paprika, and offered up with a slice of lemon, they're packed with flavor.

    The best part is that the prep time takes only a couple of minutes. Once that’s done, the oven will do all the rest of the work. Score!
