Ingredients
  • 20 - 30 white mushrooms, stems removed
  • 3 Tablespoons ghee (can sub with coconut oil)
  • 1½ teaspoons seafood seasoning
  • ½ yellow onion, diced small
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 5 slices bacon, diced
  • 3 - 4 ounces of Neufchatel cheese or a little under a half package.
  • 4 ounces or half a can real jumbo lump crab meat
  • 4 ounces or half a can tiny shrimp
  • Dash of salt/pepper
Instructions
  1. MUSHROOMS:
  2. Preheat oven to 450.
  3. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  4. Spread mushroom caps on baking sheet, stem side down.
  5. Melt a tablespoon of ghee and brush mushrooms with melted oil.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. After 10 minutes, turn mushrooms over and bake for another 5 minutes.
  8. Once mushrooms are cooked, using a papertowl, press on each mushroom to soak up the water that has been drawn out. Set aside.
  9. FILLING:
  10. In a medium skillet melt 1 Tablespoon of ghee and add bacon. Cook on medium for 2 or 3 minutes.
  11. Add onions to bacon, saute for 5 minutes or until translucent and bacon is thoroughly cooked.
  12. Add spinach to mixture, saute until wilted.
  13. Add the last tablespoon of ghee.
  14. Add crab, shrimp, seafood seasoning and dash of salt/pepper, combine and saute for 3 - 4 minutes.
  15. Add Neufchatel and stir slowly to encourage the cheese to melt into the mixture. Once it's completely melted and combined with everything else remove from heat.
  16. Spoon about a teaspoon of crab/shrimp mixture into each mushroom cap and pop back in the oven for 3-5 minutes. Serve warm.
  17. These reheat nicely too. I microwaved 4 or 5 of them for about 25 seconds.
  18. You could make them ahead of time but no more than 12 hours ahead.
