Crab Stuffed Mushrooms is an appetizer you will want to serve often when you want to impress your guests.
I use cajun crab dip purchased from the store that contains imitation crab meat (shhh–my little secret). If you cannot find cajun crab dip, you could purchase regular crab dip and add some creole seasoning to it. The most time-consuming part of the recipe is cleaning the mushrooms. It is better to use a small kitchen brush for this purpose rather than rinsing them with water which tends to make them soggy. In conclusion, try my Crab Stuffed Mushrooms soon. This would be the perfect appetizer to go with my Two-tone Lasagna.
