  • 8 fresh morels - trimmed, washed, and dried

  • butter-flavored cooking spray

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped red bell pepper

  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced green onion, including green part

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 1 (6 ounce) can lump crabmeat

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped celery leaves

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 4 dashes hot sauce, or to taste

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¼ cup bread crumbs

  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Chop mushroom stems finely. Cut mushroom caps in half lengthwise; place cut-side up in a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  3. Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add chopped mushroom stems, red bell pepper, and green onion; cook and stir until green onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; allow to cool, about 10 minutes.

  4. Mix cream cheese, crabmeat, egg, celery leaves, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and sea salt together in a large bowl. Fold in cooled onion mixture. Place a dollop of filling in each mushroom cap with a small spoon.

  5. Mix bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese together in a small bowl. Sprinkle on top of filled mushroom caps.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until filling is golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute orange or yellow bell pepper for the red bell pepper if preferred.

I made my own bread crumbs from garlic bagel slices crushed with a rolling pin.
