Mushroom lovers or not, people absolutely devour these! They are a hearty appetizer for holiday parties or really just about any time. I recommend serving them warm and keeping them that way if they are not scarfed down immediately.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz container of Big T Coastal Provisions original or jalapeno crab dip
  • Package of button mushrooms (I’ve also used cremini mushrooms and they are great)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Skillet (cast iron preferred) 

Steps

  1. Pre-heat the oven to HIGH broil.
  2. Snap the stems out of the mushrooms and wipe down with a damp paper towel to remove any dirt from the mushrooms.
  3. Coat the skillet with a small amount (approx tablespoon) of olive oil.
  4. Put the mushrooms with the tops facing down and let them cook down a bit, just a few minutes.
  5. Remove the mushrooms from the stovetop and let cool for a few minutes. Stuff about a teaspoon of Big T crab dip into each mushroom. You can either keep them in the skillet or transfer them to a baking pan.
  6. Place the crab dip stuffed mushrooms in the oven under the broiler for about 3-5 minutes. Let the cheese in the dip get bubbly and brown, remove from the oven and serve immediately.
