Crawfish Stuffed 'Shrooms
Why I Love This Recipe
live in the "low country" and had extra crawfish left over after a boil, and decided to tweak the everyday stuffed shroom recipe and made it low country-licious.
First... the extra spice is a mix of cajun seasoning and seasoning salt... mixed to your spice threshold. We like ours extra spicy!
