Crab Stuffed Mushrooms are the perfect easy appetizer to serve at your next party. They are simple to make, but impressive enough to serve guests.
Can stuffed mushrooms be made ahead of time?
Yes, they can! Whip them up and then just pop them into the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. This makes these the perfect appetizer for your next party as you can make them the day before and spend the day of the party getting your house ready. Pop them in the oven just before you are ready to serve.
How long do you cook stuffed mushrooms?
Depending on what you stuff the mushrooms with and what temperature you cook them at the time will vary. Because these mushrooms are stuffed with delicious crab meat they will need 15 minutes of cook time in a 375 degree Fahrenheit oven.
Can I use imitation crab meat?
There are generally two kinds of fresh crab sold: lump crab meat, and lump claw meat. Lump claw meat tends to be far less expensive and still creates a tasty crab cake. It can be sold in a refrigerated can or in plastic bag packaging. You can also buy it at the seafood counter of your grocery store. Lump crab meat is also sold in the canned section of your grocery store near the tuna, but it is not considered fresh. It is not recommended for this recipe. Imitation crab can also be used in this recipe if you are trying to save money. But nothing beats real, fresh crab. Imitation crab meat is usually made out of cheap pollock fish with a wide list of fillers in it as well. That being said it does come down to personal taste so if you really love imitation crab, or just don’t want to break the bank, go ahead and try this recipe with it.
