Stuffed Mushroom "POP"pers

Hey friends! Sorry I've been MIA this past week. I threw my sister a baby shower on Saturday and was super busy all week cooking, baking, and making decorations. I've gotta say...this definitely stretched my talents. I'm not really a DIYer outside of the kitchen. I am, however, extremely pleased with how everything turned out.

So, this week, I'll be sharing with you bits and pieces from the shower, leading up to the big reveal.

Today we have stuffed mushroom "POP"pers. The shower theme was "She's Ready to Pop" so all of the food had "POP" in it. (I had to get creative for a few items.) The colors were pink and green with lots of polka dots.



1 lb fresh mushrooms 
1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons onions, finely chopped 
2 tablespoons red bell peppers, finely chopped 
1/2 lb crabmeat 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 black pepper, ground 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1 egg 
1/2 cup water 
6 slices white cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.Wash mushrooms, remove stems, and set caps aside. Chop half of stems and reserve for next step.

Saute chopped mushroom stems,celery, onion and pepper in butter for 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cool in refrigerator.

Combine sauteed vegetables with all other ingredients except cheese slices and mix well. 

Place caps in a sprayed baking dish, stem side up. Spoon 1 teaspoon stuffing into each cap and cover with cheese slices (I broke them up into appropriate sized pieces). Bake for 12-15 minutes until cheese is lightly brown.

These were so yummy and tasted just like the ones you get at the restaurant! You definitely need to try them! Stay tuned for more fun "POP"able ideas and recipes!!

Until next time, happy reading and, more importantly, happy cupcake-ing!
