Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

I love finding new ways to use Fage 2% yogurt besides as a sour cream substitute, an addition to soups and dips, and of course scarfing it down by the cup every morning. I am obsessed with Fage, it’s thick, creamy consistency, its tang, and its versatility. When my mom gave my some baby bella mushrooms this past weekend, I instantly wanted to stuff them with Fage. . . and something else. But what?

 

Fage

I wandered around the kitchen, cleaning my mushrooms and readying my Fage. Cleaning mushrooms is the grossest task ever, I am convinced. Ick.

And then I saw this canned crab I picked up at Market Basket a few weeks ago. I like to keep canned crab on hand because it’s cheap, it tastes pretty darn good, and unlike the fresh stuff, doesn’t require a special trip to the store. And it’s really great in recipes.

To stuff the mushrooms, I made a quick mix of crab meat, spinach, shredded mozzarella cheese, and a splash of Girard’s Old Venice Italian dressing.

Into the mushrooms the stuffing went, and they cooked at 405 degrees for 25 minutes.

They came out nicely golden brown, with soft, creamy centers. They were delicious!

It was fun to eat an appetizer for dinner, though I was hungry a couple of hours later. Nothing a sandwich thin slathered in Nutella and a glass of milk couldn’t fix!

Do you have any appetizer-like foods that you like to eat as a meal? I could definitely eat apps all day long!

    Greek yogurt is SO versatile. I use it in everything! Love this idea – though I don’t do mushrooms and would probably enjoy this stuffing in peppers!

    Cleaning mushrooms is nowhere near as gross as trimming chicken. Yuck! This filling sounds so good. My go-to stuffed mushroom recipe has spinach, sausage bread crumbs, onions, and Parmesan.

      Haha! Would you believe trimming chicken doesn’t even phase me anymore? There’s something about the dirt on mushrooms that I find repulsive!

      Very creative. I love using Greek yogurt as a sub for mayo, sour cream and in dips. This is another one I’ll have to try.

      I love stuffed mushrooms! I could eat appetizers all the time too… I think that’s why I like tapas style places so much! I like variety more than the commitment of one full meal (most of the time).

      Mmmm I love stuffed mushrooms and I love fage yogurt! I also use it as a mayo sub since there is something about mayo that just doesn’t sit well with me generally. I prefer the tang and texture of greek yogurt when I make my chicken salads (with sliced grapes and almond slivers!) and love using it in tzatziki (which is quite possibly my most favorite summer time dip – but I’ll eat it any season, it’s just that good!)

      My mom makes a similar stuffed mushroom using crab meat, but this version looks really tasty!
