Grilled Crab Stuffed Mushrooms + Louisiana Hot Sauce Tour

With all of the requests that I've had for these melt in your mouth mushrooms, I just had to post the recipe. One of my favorite appetizers, these sinfully delicious treats are so divine that you'll want to double the batch! And so quick and easy for those busy days. Bon Appetit!

Grilled Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

1 1/2 cups lump crab meat, picked over
1 tbs. crushed garlic
1 tbs. bread crumbs
1 tbs. Cajun seasonings
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 pounds large fresh mushrooms, stems removed
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 tbsp.'s melted butter
Grated cheddar or Parmesan cheese

Combine crab meat and 1/2 cup bread crumbs. Add garlic, parsley, and seasoning and mix well. Stir in egg and blend gently. Fill mushroom caps with crab mixture. Mix 1 tbsp. bread crumbs in melted butter and place a little of this mixture on top of each mushroom. Top with cheese. Grill on medium heat for 15 minutes or bake @ 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Serves 10 Enjoy!

Louisiana Hot Sauce Tour

What do you get when you have two master bluesmen playing a gig in one club, packed with Cajuns, in downtown Lafayette? One hellava good time, cher, oh the fun!! Nitetown night club was the scene Friday night, for the Louisiana Hot Sauce Tour, featuring two of the best Southern blues musicians in the country! The place was packed to the gills with happy fans!

One of the greats performing was Kenny Neal, who was born in New Orleans, and is the son of master bluesman, Raful Neal. Kenny has mastered the art of the harmonica, bass, trumpet, piano, and guitar, making him one of the masters of the genre. Kenny and his hotter than hot band were getting down!

Born in Baton Rouge, Tab Benoit rocked the packed house with his eclectic style of swamp and soul, blues guitar, mixed up with a little Chicago blues. When I tell you that he is good, cher, you know that I mean it! Tab was letting his hair down at this great show. Let the good times roll, cher!

Here is one of my all time favorite videos of Kenny Neal & the Neal Family Band.
Grab a cold drink and enjoy these fabulous bayou blues! Cheers, ya'll!!

Okay now seriously. Those stuffed mushrooms. It's nine o'clock in the morning, and I could definitely have them for breakfast, they look so good.

Cathy said...

Crab stuffed mushrooms are the best thing ever. I don't think I'd be able to share these :)

Kat said...

These babies would last about 3 seconds into the game on game day!!
They look delicious. Think I will make them on an un-game day for me and B.

John said...

I listened to the Kenny Neal clip, definitely cold beer music.

Carol @ TheWritersPorch said...

Thank you Marguerite!! My Hubby craves these! Now I can make them for him and me!! :)

Elizabeth Bradley said...

Yeah, so what's everyone else gonna eat?

I have never told you, but I love all your music clips you hunt down for us.

I didn't blog about it, but I did spend three hours learning cajun dancing (nothing much sadder than to see me dancing, but i try). Three nights during our trip, we ventured off the quarter to Frenchman Street and pretended we fit in (ordered beer instead of Sazerac)... So much fun

MaLou Silverman said...

Wow, I was thinking this is sinfully rich, but when you baked them, ok, it not that sinful :)

This is so special, a good hors d'oeuvre too for my daughter's party.
And I'd enjoy this anytime too.

I added this to my StumbleIt.

Marguerite said...

Joanne- Thanks, cher! Sometimes I add chopped shrimp and stuff into portabella mushrooms! Definitely brunch material.

Cathy- They are one of my favorites, too. That's why you have to double the recipe. Half for you and half for everyone else! lol

Kat- Merci for the sweet compliment, cher! Try them, you will love em'.

John- So glad you liked it, cher! Cheers! Thanks for stopping by!

Jeni said...

There you go again -making me hungry. However, I'm thinking I might actually be able to fix these mushrooms and then, be able to slide a little crab meat into my daughter at the same time. Let her find out that way how scrumpdelicious crab meat really is, huh?

Angie Ledbetter said...

Girllllllllll, my mouth is watering! You should open a lunch restaurant!

Marguerite said...

Carol- Thanks, so glad that you like them. Sinful, cher!

Elizabeth- Merci, I'll take that as a compliment, mon amis!

Dave- Merci beaucoup for the sweet comment, cher! So glad you enjoy the music! Sounds like you had a blast!

MaLou- Thanks so much! Great to hear from you! I am so glad that you want to make them for your daughter's party. These will be a big hit. Cheers!
