Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

March 14, 2019

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms are the ultimate flavorful seafood appetizer. Delicious juicy jumbo white mushrooms stuffed to the hilt with seasoned tender lump crab meat, cheese, breadcrumbs, and herbs, all baked in the oven to glorious perfection.

There’s nothing better than a giant white mushroom overstuffed with decadent lump crab in my book. I swear I could almost make a meal of these deliciously stuffed morsels. They taste like little appetizers from heaven to me, especially when topped with a touch of butter and lemon juice. Umm Good!


Crab Stuffed Mushrooms You can also use Baby Bella or Portobello Mushrooms in the white mushrooms to change things up a little. I had a ton of large white mushrooms because they were on sale at my market. I can not pass up a good deal to save my soul, Y’all. I genuinely mean that statement as well.

My husband will tell you if something is on sale that I use, I will buy five or more at one shot because, in the long run, it saves me a ton of money on groceries. Who doesn’t love to save money on groceries? Especially the items you frequently use? Exactly! We all like saving our money.




Crab Stuffed Mushrooms Let’s talk ingredients: This recipe, unfortunately, isn’t one to use substitute ingredients friends, believe me when I say, “The recipe will not come out as it should.” Be sure to use real lump crab meat, Mayonnaise, fresh parsley, dill, real unsalted butter, Panko breadcrumbs. Fresh lemon zest and lemon juice. You will thank me later for making this abundantly clear for you. Some recipes you can play around with this is not one of them.

Sometimes we want to own a recipe and make it our own, but this is a tried and true recipe that I have made several times. Trust me, I have tried all the substitutions, and each time the method only hit Meh level. I want Y’all to enjoy the recipe, not just think, “Meh, I’ve had better.”
