These Boursin Cheese & Crab Stuffed Mushrooms are melt in your mouth delicious. They’re so hearty you could even serve them as a meal! I’m not usually a fan of Stuffed Mushrooms but Mom made these a couple weeks ago and I found myself going back for a second helping! I always taste everything that makes its way onto my blog. I wasn’t really looking forward to taste testing these but boy was I in for a surprise!
Really, how can you go wrong with Boursin Cheese mixed in to the stuffing! I love the fact that the stuffing isn’t overly bready. You can actually taste the big pieces of lump crab in every delicious bite. They make the perfect appetizer to bring to a party but they are so filling you could actually serve them as a meal!
