Quick and Delicious Cheesy Crab Stuffed Mushrooms



Ingredients: 

1-8 ounce package light cream cheese

8 ounces of chopped imitation crab

2 tbsp. Johnny’s Garlic Spread & Seasoning (available at Costco)

1 tsp. ground cayenne pepper

½ tsp. garlic powder

1/3 cup grated light cheddar cheese (reserve a small amount to top mushrooms)

mushroom stems

1 tsp. olive oil

cooking spray

18 large mushrooms (with stems removed)


Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Remove stems from mushrooms and rough chop. Heat a sauté pan on medium high heat with 1 tsp. of olive oil. Add mushrooms stems and cook until all moisture is absorbed.

In the meanwhile, add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Mix cream cheese mixture with cooked mushroom stems. Using a spoon, fill each mushroom cavity with filling.

Spray baking sheet with baking spray and place stuffed mushrooms on tray. Spray sides and tops of mushrooms lightly and sprinkle with remaining grated cheese.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
