Red Lobster Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
Source: Red Lobster's Web Site

1 pound fresh mushrooms, approximately 35-40
1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 pound crab claw meat
2 cups oyster crackers, crushed
1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup water
6 white Cheddar cheese slices

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Sauté celery, onion and pepper in butter for 2 minutes, transfer to a plate, and cool in the refrigerator.

While vegetables cool, wash mushrooms and remove stems. Set caps to the side and finely chop half of the stems. Discard the other half of the stems or use elsewhere.

Combine the sautéed vegetables, chopped mushroom stems and all other ingredients (except cheese slices) and mix well.

Place mushroom caps in individual buttered casseroles or baking dishes (about 6 caps each). Spoon 1 teaspoon of stuffing into each mushroom. Cover with sliced cheese. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until cheese is lightly browned. Yields 6 servings.

Chef's Tip: You can use a pastry bag with a large tip to fill the mushrooms.
