"Very decadent, but really delicious. I wouldn't necessarily take these to a potluck party, but these are wonderful to make for a small dinner party (10-12 people). Lobster can be a bit pricey, but for a small group they are really o good. Just watch for the sales on lobster and then it isn't too expensive. This makes approximately 36 mushrooms."

Step 1

Filling ... Add the butter to a saute pan on medium high heat. Add the celery, garlic, scallions and pimento and cook 2 minutes; then add in the Old Bay seasoning, parsley, salt and pepper; stir and immediately remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl.

Step 2

Bread Crumbs ... In a small bowl add the milk and buttermilk and dip the bread slices, soak just a couple of seconds and then squeeze dry. Crumble up the bread slices as you add them to the vegetable mix. Add in the egg, parmesan and monterey jack cheese and mix well. And finish the filling by adding the lobster and gently toss so you don't break up the lobster too much. Note: I can get my lobster steamed right from my local grocery store or butcher.

Step 3

Mushrooms ... Brush the outside of each mushroom with a little olive oil, you can also use a spray which is easier if you have it. This just allows them to really brown up during baking. Stuff the mushroom as much as you can and pile them high. Mix the parmesan and monterey jack cheese together and top each of the mushrooms.

Step 4

Bake ... Butter a casserole dish and add the mushrooms. Bake at 400 degrees on the middle shelf for 15-20 minutes until the mushrooms are tender and the cheese is golden brown and bubbly. Transfer to the broiler if you want the tops a bit more brown - this is what I like to do. It only takes a few minutes to brown the tops.

Step 5

Serve ... Rich and decadent, but delicious. Perfect for a special dinner party. ENJOY!

Lobster was $4.99 pound last week, so we had a lobster feed and had several left over. I made these to have with rib eyes the following night, and cooked them in a disposable aluminum pan along with the steaks. Excellent!

Super duper delicious! Great as an appie while watching the tube on New Years. Better than most restaurants! I squirted lemon over the top before eating!

Got lobster on sale for $6.99 lb, so I decided to make these to enjoy as an appie. We loved every morsel! Can you say, "Let's lick the plate"?

Amazing! Delicious as part of my Valentine's day dinner with my family. I loved that it's not too time consuming. We inhaled them! You could easily substitute shrimp or crab and maybe even another mild white fish in this recipe.
