I am looking for a stuffed mushroom cap recipe that used to be included in a little recipe
fold-out found on the tops of canned crab meat. The recipe called for removing the stems
from the caps, brushing them with butter, and baking the caps for 8 minutes. Meanwhile,
the stuffing consisted of bread crumbs, parsley, chopped mushroom stems, and the crab meat
from the can mixed together and lightly toasted in a skillet. This was then stuffed into
the caps and baked. I cannot find the recipe anywhere! Yes, I realize I have given most
of the recipe; it's the measurements I need. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanking you in advance,
I try to locate recipes that exactly fit the requests that I receive. If a request asks for
a particular recipe, especially one from a specific source, then I usually don't send recipes
that "I thought you might like" or that "might be similar." Since most of my searching is done
via computer, in order to be successful I need "keywords" that are unique to the recipe for
which I am searching. In this case, the description you have sent has ingredients listed, but
they are very common. Using them as keywords brings up dozens of recipes, but I found none
that says "this recipe is found on the top of cans of canned crab meat." There are many, many
"stuffed mushroom" recipes or "stuffed mushroom caps" recipes with mushrooms, butter, parsley
and breadcrumbs, but most of them also have garlic in some form, and/or some kind of cheese
and/or onions. You don't mention any of these ingredients, so I must assume that the recipe
that you want does not have them. Plus, you don't remember, or don't mention, the brand of crab
meat on which you found the recipe - that brand name would be very helpful.
I will post this for reader input, but if you can recall the brand of crab meat and/or other
ingredients such as cheese, garlic, or onions, please send the information along.
Thank you so much for trying! It is most appreciated. Potentially it was Crown Prince brand crabmeat.
I tried contacting their customer service department last year and the recipe that the kind person
found was sadly not the one I am looking for. As for other ingredients such as cheese, garlic, etc.,
I don't recall any of those listed, hence why I didn't include them in the remembered ingredient list.

Hi Uncle Phaedrus. I love Surry Sausage from Surry, Virginia but since the place where they
made it burned down, it is no longer available. I have scoured the internet looking for a
recipe as I want to try to make it at home but have not found anything. I am a very amateur
sausage maker. Can you help locate a recipe for surry sausage?
Any recipe for making surry sausage (Edwards Virginia Smokehouse Smoked Sausage) remains a
secret. I could not find a recipe or a copycat or a "tastes-like" recipe. There is a video
of the sausage being made here, but of course it does not give a recipe: YouTube
However, it has been over two years since that fire destroyed their smokehouse, and although
issues with their insurance company delayed rebuilding, they resumed selling their products
last year. See the story here: Specialty Food
See their website here: Edwards Virginia Ham
The sausage page is here: Edwards Virginia Ham: Smoked Sausage
They have a Facebook page here: Facebook
I'll post this. There's always a chance that a reader can recommend a "tastes-like" recipe.

Phaed -- Thanks for the help . I will try checking with Christine through facebook for the
recipe. What is the site where you publish recipe requests from others and, of course, publish
responses to the requests? I am also interested in the rum cake recipe from Cuneo's in Texas
you obtained -- among other recipes. Your culinary friend, Dave.
The main page of my site is here. You can find everything if you begin there: Hungrybrowser.com
There is a site search engine, a yearly index, and a subject index.
I did not have "Cuneo's Rum Cake" recipe, but I found it here: Texas Cooking
