Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Tender mushrooms filled with a creamy, cheesy and savory crab meat filling and baked to perfection.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 5


  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms wiped clean and debris removed with a damp towel. Use mushrooms with a cap diameter of about 1 1/2 inches.
  • 1 tablespoon butter unsalted
  • 3 tablespoons minced yellow onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning**
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces crab meat
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley optional garnish


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Remove stems from mushrooms. Gently spoon out gills and base of the stem from mushrooms and discard.*
  • Melt butter over medium high heat in a saucepan.  Add onions and cook (stirring frequently) for 3 minutes, or until tender. Add garlic and cook (while stirring) until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
  • Remove from heat.  Add cream cheese, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, Old Bay seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth. Fold in crab meat.
  • Place mushroom caps onto prepared baking sheet.  Spoon crab mixture into caps.  Sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until heated thoroughly. 
  • Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.


  • This recipe yields approximately 20 mushrooms.
  • *I find using the tip of a potato peeler works well for removing gills from mushrooms with a cap diameter of about 1 1/2 inches recommended for this recipe.
  • **Cajun seasoning can be substituted for Old Bay seasoning, but will add more heat.
