The Keg Mushrooms Neptune Copycat
Be prepared for the ultimate appetizer idea: this copycat Mushrooms Neptune recipe inspired by The Keg Steakhouse has a cream cheese, crab and shrimp filling you're gonna die for!
Servings: 45 mushrooms
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 45 Button mushrooms
- 1 package cream cheese
- 1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 cup finely chopped crabmeat I use the imitation crab meat in packages typically found at most fish counters
- 1/2 cup cooked shrimp finely chopped
- 4 green onions minced
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Wash mushrooms, and remove stems very carefully. Heat olive oil in a large frying pan on med-high heat. Add mushroom caps, sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt, and sauté for 2 minutes each side until softened.
Soften cream cheese in the microwave in a large bowl for about 15 seconds. Add cheeses, lemon juice, salt and pepper, crabmeat, shrimp and green onions, mixing well.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add mushroom caps, and then spoon filling into mushroom caps, or pipe using a Ziploc bag with the corner cut off.
Cook mushrooms in oven on the lowest oven rack for 15 minutes, then switch oven setting on to broil. Switch oven rack to the top setting and broil tops of the mushrooms for about 2-3 minutes until tops are lightly browned.
Serve right away, or refrigerate for up to 24 hours and then reheat in 350 F oven for 15-20 minutes. Filling can also be frozen up to 3 months to refill fresh mushrooms with!
