2 Tbs unsalted butter
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
2 Tbs finely chopped onion…
2 Tbs finely chopped red bell pepper
1/2 lb crab
2 cups crushed oyster crackers
1/2 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 egg, beaten well
1/2 cup water
6 slices white cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 400°. Wash and stem mushrooms. Transfer to a bowl and cool in the refrigerator. Melt the butter in a medium pan and sauté celery, onion and bell pepper for 2 minutes. Finely chop half of the mushroom stems and combine with sautéed vegetables. Add the crab, crackers, cheese, Old Bay, garlic powder, salt, pepper, egg and water and mix well. Divide mushroom caps equally among 6 individual buttered baking dishes and spoon 1 tablespoon of the stuffing into each mushroom. Cover with a slice of cheese and bake until cheese is lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
