For actual Valentine's DAY, the boy and I got a mountain of crab legs from our favorite spot The Reef. I had a lot of leftover crab, so what better to do with them than make crab stuffed mushrooms??
I scoured the interwebs for the best recipe. And finally settled on one by Paula Deen. I love that lady. She knows her stuff. Everything she makes is delicious. ...or so I thought.
So here's how it went...
I'm not sure where I veered...where I went wrong. Actually, no, I know what happened. Onion overload! The recipe called for [in my opinion] an insane amount of green onion. But I had faith in Paula. Paula wouldn't let me down! Plus, this recipe had over a hundred rave reviews. Clearly these weirdos have never had good stuffed mushrooms. Or maybe they were all part of the onion lover club. Or maybe I had a really potent batch of onions. Hmm. Don't get me wrong, I like onions, I just wish I could have tasted any of the OTHER ingredients involved too. I spent like a half hour picking crab meat from crab bodies. I kind of wanted to taste them in what I was making with them.
Here's the recipe if you're brave: Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
I think if I halved the amount of onions, it would have been a lot better.
