Let’s begin:

Preheat your oven to 400°

Start by cleaning off your mushrooms.  I rinse mine and dry them with paper towels. Alternatively, you can wipe them clean with a damp paper towel.

Remove the stems of the mushrooms. If you’d like, you can scrape the underside of the mushrooms smooth, but I just leave them alone. The stems should just pop off if you bend them to the side. You can chop the stems to add them to the filling or leave them out. I opted to leave them out and have more crab in the filling. Set your mushrooms aside.

Remove the crab from your package and chop it small, this is so when you bite into the mushroom the filling doesn’t come out. I recommend a dice of 1/4 – 1/2″ pieces.

Now in a medium bowl, mix the crab, cheese, mayo, red onion, and green onion, along with old bay, dill (I love fresh!), salt, and pepper. Mix well and set aside.

Prepare a foil-lined baking sheet (for easy clean up). Place mushrooms cap side down. (upside down)

Fill each mushroom with 3 tablespoons of the filling, press it down a bit so it doesn’t fall off.

Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until mushrooms are softened and filling is heated through. The tops will get golden and crispy.

I recommend serving with lemon squeezed on top or you can add some lemon juice to the filling itself before baking.

It’s so good! And you’ll make it again and again!

Inquiring minds want to know:

I’m not a fan of crab, would chicken be a good substitute?

Yes! Add in some cooked chicken. It will work well since chicken can be a bit dryer you may need to add a little more mayo to mix it smoothly.

I’m out of mayo, is there something else I can use?

It just so happens I have a great recipe for homemade mayo. It’s straightforward, and if you’ve never made it before – you may never go back after tasting it!
