    Chef Phil Anderson shares his recipe for this quick and easy stuffed mushroom appetizer.

    Chef Phil Anderson: We're going to make Stuffed Mushrooms with Backfin Meat Crab. The ingredients are 12 large mushrooms, 1/3 cup of Backfin Crab, 4 ounces of cream cheese, 1 green onion, basil, lemon juice, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce.

    I've preheated the oven to 450?

    . After that I took the mushroom and hollowed it out, and then diced up the insides because we're going to use that as our filling. And we'll take all of our ingredients and we're going to mix them together. You could do all kinds of different variations with this stuffed mushroom, but this is a very good appetizer for parties. And it's got to be even, evenly divided so, if you don't want to over stuff them.

    Okay, now that we've stuffed all of our mushrooms here, we'll then put the cheese on. We want to start off with the cheddar cheese. The Reggiano is going to brown faster because it has less moisture than the cheddar, so that's what is going to be the pretty brownness.

    Okay, now we're going to put this into our preheated to 450? oven, and we're going to leave it in there for about 12-15 minutes and there you have it, Stuffed Mushrooms with Backfin Crab, enjoy.
