The perfect make ahead party appetizer
When it comes to holiday entertaining, I’m all about planning ahead and keeping things simple, so these crab stuffed mushrooms are perfect! You can make the filling and prep the mushrooms several hours ahead of time, so all you need to do is pop them in the oven when guests arrive. Easy!
Can you freeze crab stuffed mushrooms?
You can’t freeze these stuffed mushrooms once they’ve been cooked, but you can freeze them once they are fully prepped and ready to go in the oven. Freeze the mushrooms on a baking tray, and once frozen you can transfer them to a freezer bag. You can cook the mushrooms from frozen.
How do you serve stuffed mushrooms?
These crab stuffed mushrooms are the perfect finger food to serve at a party. Once they are cooked, serve them immediately on a serving plate. I like to serve two or three finger foods together, so try serving alongside Bacon Wrapped Dates Tofu ‘Chicken’ Nuggets or Sriracha Devilled Eggs.
