Recipe Review #2 for 2012

Hey All, 

We were wanting something different to eat.  You know when you want something but you don't have a clue as to what you want.  Jene` had some stuffed mushrooms at a friend's house over the holidays so I decided to see what I could find.  I came across some that had sausage in them but I have one that won't eat sausage.  I finally found one over on allrecipes.com that sounded like my family might eat.  It was made with stuffing and had imitation crab meat in it.  I had all the ingredients except the imitation crab meat and mushrooms so that was also a plus.  That night for dinner we had spaghetti, stuffed mushrooms and garlic bread.  I should have made more mushrooms because that is what all but one wanted to eat.  They were gone in no time not a morsel left.

The mixture was made from a stuffing mix and had cream cheese and imitation crab meat in it.  Shhhh we don't want the little munchkin to know it had the crab meat.  He ate the stuffing mix out of the mushroom but wouldn't eat the mushroom.  Oh and he also didn't know that there was also some mushrooms in the stuffing because I had chopped up the stems and put into the stuffing.  I know I'm such a bad mom for tricking my child like that.  But he ate it!

There was a lot of the mixture leftover and we liked them so much that I bought some more mushrooms and made them again.  This time I put a blob of the stuffing mix in a corner of the pan so the little munchkin could enjoy it without wasting the mushroom.  This recipe is a keeper! 

You can find  Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms  here on allrecipe.com.  The only change I made to the recipe was I decreased the butter.  It just seemed like it a lot of butter so I cut it in half.  There wasn't any complaints.  The kids are already asking when I am going to make them again.

Take Care :)

I love mushrooms. Had the ones with sausage, never crab meat. Going to have to try them.

Mmmmnn. I love any kind of stuffed mushrooms. Funny, my son is the same way. He might try something if he doesn't know exactly what's in it.
