Mushrooms are one of my husband's favorite foods, so I try to incorporate them into meals every once in a while.  I saw this recipe for stuffed mushrooms, and it sounded like something he would really love.  With crab, cheese, and mushrooms, how could I go wrong? 

These turned out to be as tasty as I had hoped, and were only one point for four of them.  Nice!  The only thing I didn't like much was the celery, which I think I will omit next time I make these.  I will probably keep the bell pepper in, though, since that added a nice crunchy addition to the mushrooms.  I am just not a big fan of the flavor of celery.

These were obviously meant to be an appetizer, but since we both like mushrooms, and these were only 1 point for four, I doubled the recipe and made 24 of these.  I made a salad to go with it and we just munched on mushrooms for dinner.  Yum!  I bought the large mushrooms that say they are meant for stuffing, and they worked out perfectly for the amount of filling that the recipe made.  If you are picking mushrooms from a bulk bin, make sure you pick the larger size ones so they are big enough to stuff them. 

Overall, these are GREAT for an appetizer, especially considering their points value.  Most appetizers have many more points than these, and then you still have a whole meal to eat afterward!  Enjoy!
