These are a HUGE hit in my house. On christmas eve my family does a buffet style of finger foods instead of a big sit down meal. so here are the mushroom caps super yummy and warm "pickins" as grandma calls them.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

There are so many yummy flavors in these stuffed mushrooms. The stuffing, cream cheese and crab meat is delicious. Then to top it off with wonderful garlic butter. If you want a little extra kick sprinkle more red pepper flakes. Place these on the table and watch 'em disappear. Your guests will be impressed!
