Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms

1 lb whole button mushrooms
prepared seafood salad from grocery store

Stuff salad in mushrooms and cook covered fry pan on medium high heat for 10 minutes or until mushrooms are soft.

My husband loves stuffed mushroom, and I hate buying a container of lump crab meat for $12-15. While I was contemplating the purchase, the grocery store had prepared seafood salad  (immitation crab meat and shrimp) for $2. So I thought to try it. It was actually delicious!!

Bring Eye of Round to room temperature, rub with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Preheat oven to 475 degrees and then turn down to 425 when you insert the meat.

Slice meat very thin. only slice what you will eat immediately.
Cut loaf in halve lengthwise and spread a generous amount of butter on both sides. Layer meat, top with arugula and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
