Crab Stuffed Mushrooms En Croute Crab Stuffed Mushrooms En Croute

Servings: 18
Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

salt and freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup butter, melted
1   box of phyllo pastry (will need at least 18 sheets)
18   uniform sized mushrooms, stem removed
1/2 cup finely minced crabmeat (may use imitation)
1/2 cup Borsin Cheese
1   egg, beaten





Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine crab and cheese and divide among the upside-down mushroom caps.  Brush 8 phyllo sheets individually with melted butter.  Cover with remaining sheets.  Brush with melted butter again.  Cut phyllo sheets into 6 squares.  Place a mushroom, cheese side up in the center of each square.  Season with salt and pepper.  Lift sides of pastry over mushrooms to resemble small bundles and form a neck pinching edges together to seal.  Place on a greased baking sheet and brush with beaten egg.  Bake for about 15 minutes until pastry is crisp and golden.  Serve hot.

Can you make a bunch of these, freeze them, and reheat them in the oven? Thanks!

These are as delicioius as the day is long... but I would not have rated them as easy... maybe once you get the hang of them... 'maybe' easy... but worth it!!!!!
