Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

i was asked to recreate the mushrooms on the Red Lobster menu, these are SO close, if not exactly the takes some time, but SO worth it!

2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. celery, minced very fine
1 tbsp. onion, minced very fine
1 tbsp. red bell pepper, minced very fine
2 lbs. mushrooms (i used Cremini & Baby Portabellos)
10 oz. cooked fresh crab meat, shredded
1 cup oyster crackers, crushed
1/4 cup white cheddar cheese
1 egg
2 tbsp. water
Old Bay Seasoning
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
3 tbsp. olive oil
2/3 cup Monterey Jack cheese

Melt 2 tbsp. butter in skillet over medium heat. Add celery, onion & red bell pepper. Cook 2 minutes or until tender; cool.
Remove stems from mushrooms, finely chop about 1/4 cup stems. Reserve remaining stems for something else.
Combine celery mixture, stems, oyster crackers, crab meat, cheddar cheese, egg, water & spices in a bowl.
Grease 2 jelly roll pans. Brush caps with olive oil. Sprinkle caps with salt. Stuff w/crab mixture. Arrange on prepared pans. Top with shredded Monteray Jack cheese. Bake 12 minutes at 400F, until lightly browned.

Makes about 50 mushrooms.
