    Julesong's Note:

    Yesterday at the produce stand I got a big package of beautiful large fresh mushrooms, perfect for stuffing! In looking around for a recipe to use them with, I came across this one from Paula Deen.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    mushroo ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup boursin cheese (herb flavored cheese, check out the recipe for Boursin-Homemade #60795)
    • 1/2 cup finely minced crab (although Paula says "may use imitation" I much prefer real crab)
    • 18 large mushrooms, size suitable for stuffing, brushed off well and stems removed
    • 18 sheets phyllo pastry
    • 1/3 cup butter, melted
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 egg, beaten

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F; pan spray a baking sheet.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, combine the cheese and crab.
    3. 3
      Place crab mixture in each of the upside-down mushroom caps, using all of the mixture.
    4. 4
      On a dry surface (you can use a lightly floured board), lay down a sheet of phyllo, brush it with a light coating of melted butter, then lay another sheet on top and repeat until you’ve done 6 sheets (you can butter every other sheet, if you like).
    5. 5
      With a sharp knife, cut the prepared phyllo lengthwise down the center, then each half into 3 pieces – you’ll have made 6 rectangles.
    6. 6
      In the center of each cut piece of phyllo, place a mushroom cheese-side-up, then season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
    7. 7
      Carefully lift the sides of the cut phyllo over the stuffed mushroom so that they resemble small bundles, then gently twist the top of each and pinch a little so that it seals.
    8. 8
      Steps four through seven prepare 6 of the 18 mushrooms – repeat those steps until you’ve used all 18 of the mushrooms (which will take two more times).
    9. 9
      Place the mushroom bundles on the pan sprayed baking sheet and brush with beaten egg.
    10. 10
      Bake in 400 degree F oven for 15 minutes or until the pastry is crisp and golden.
    11. 11
      Serve immediately.

      I came across this recipe while cruising for appetizers for my upcoming party. I have made these before and they are to die for! I better make a double batch because they go fast and have a funny way of disappearing before the guest's arrive. ;)
