This is yet another delicious recipe from my nephew Rhyan's Fallout Cookbook. They initially called it Shrimp Stuffed Mushrooms but crossed it out to read Hermit Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms instead. Definitely this is one for the Shroom lover in you! We've made them several times and each time there is none left after the meal. Let me know what you think. I told my nephew that it's our appetizer for this summer for sure.

    Remove from oven and serve immediately. They are so yummy and best served when still warm. The first time my nephew Rhyan & I made these, we also decided to make another appetizer to serve for those who don't like shrooms. I'll place the recipe here in this step. They are a and most people enjoy cheese & ham. I also served these with a homemade ranch dressing which paired nicely.

    We've made these several times now and have adjusted the recipe to our liking. We've omitted some steps and a few ingredients but it really didn't alter the fabulous taste of these stuffed portabellas.
