  • Clean mushrooms and remove stems. Chop enough stem to yield one cup. Use a pastry brush to brush the caps with vegetable oil.

  • In a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter or margarine. Add chopped stems and onion to the hot butter. Saute the mixture for 4 minutes, remove it from the heat and let cool.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the mushroom-onion mixture, crabmeat, cream cheese, egg, 1 cup bread crumbs, parsley, salt, and pepper. Spoon the mixture into the mushroom caps. Arrange the caps on the prepared cookie sheet.

  • In a small skillet, melt the remaining butter and add the remaining bread crumbs to the melted butter. Once the bread crumbs are coated lightly sprinkle them over the mushroom caps.

  • Bake for 15 minutes.

This was terrific! Guests rave and think I'm a gourmet! I use a whole 8 oz. block of cream cheese and a little less bread crumbs. The filling is so creamy and tasty! A "must try"!!!

These were not good I wish I had made something else New Years Eve. The stuffing is thick and bland. I think it is probably due to there being too much bread crumbs in the recipe. We couldn't taste the crab or cream cheese or even the onion. Don't waste your time with these.

This is a great recipe. I read the reviews and cut back on the bread crumbs as well (back to about a cup). I also added minced garlic to the sauté and on the breadcrumbs on top added about 1/4-1/2 tsp. of cajun seasoning as well as parmesan cheese. My caps needed an extra 10 minutes to cook but they were kind of large so adjust accordingly. Enjoy!

I found these didn't have much taste and had a doughy texture.

I am making another batch right now! I had a party last night and everyone loved them...even know seafood haters. I left out the egg and used half as much cream cheese added a little lemon juice for moisture and the stuffing was fluffier but still held together. I will definitely make this one again!

I made it for my boyfriend and roommate and we personally liked it a lot. However I think the recipe did not need that much breadcrumbs as indicated because in the end I had excess breadcrumbs that did not stay on the mushrooms and fell into the baking pan instead. It made a small mess and it also affected the taste of the mushrooms.

This recipe is great!! I'm not a gourmet chef and I made it with no problems. I brought it to the in-laws for Christmas dinner and it was gone before dinner started. I made one batch with crab and one batch with bacon (precooked in a package). Both were excellent! I highly recommend this recipe!

These came out awesome! I followed what some people said and used a little less breadcrumbs and also didn't use the breadcrumbs on top. Instead I put shredded mozzarella cheese on top and broiled them the last few minutes to be browned. Oh and I also used some paprika in the mixture along with a little more salt and pepper and some extra garlic powder. I'll definately make this again. It was easy and versatile!
