These stuffed mushrooms are so friggin' good it's hard to stop eating them and you'll find yourself craving them. Two of these delicacies make me feel overfull, so I refrigerate pairs for meals throughout my week.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These stuffed mushrooms are delicious! The crab mixture is creamy with lovely crab flavor. Pork skins are an unusual topping and add a wonderful guilt-free crunch to the tops of these. We love Old Bay and crab, so opted to add a little extra on top. They'll be great at your next party.
