Grain Free Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Years ago in my 20s, while my teen was still an infant, a friend invited me over to dinner. She was a young mom like me, but already a fantastic cook. Looking back, I think she might have been the first “Real Foodie” I ever met! 1998 was the height of the low-fat diet rage, and I was avoiding fat in my diet like the plague. 

She was not.

I still remember what she made that night almost twenty years later.  Tortellini Alfredo, salad, Homemade Apple Pie and Crab Stuffed Mushrooms as appetizers. Nothing too crazy or exotic, just  real, whole, full-fat food, and those mushrooms were so good it was ridiculous. 

I spent years trying to recreate that dish, but it wasn’t until I went back to full-fat dairy and dropped the “food-like” non fat and low fat versions I was living off of that I finally got it right. They are still one of my favorite appetizers.

  1. Looks delicious. Wish you had a pin button. My printer is broken and I don’t want one more account to log into. Great directions!

    • If you hover over any of the images a pin up marklet should appear! I did have an additional “Pin It” button on all my posts, I’ll have to look in to why it’s disappeared!
