"You can use the most common white button mushrooms for stuffed mushrooms. However, I found that baby bella mushrooms are better for this recipe as the flavor is heartier and deeper. Portobello mushrooms are also great for making stuffed mushrooms. But they are not suitable for finger foods that your guests can just grab and walk around to mingle. Crimini mushrooms would be a good alternative too due to the decent size to hold the fillings and the stronger flavor as well."

NotesI had some extra filling left because some of my mushrooms were really small. When picking your mushrooms, select decent sized ones so that you can get more filling in them.

Cooking Time25 min


  • 24 baby bella mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 (6-ounce) can crab meat, drained
  • 1/4 cup shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 cups Italian blend cheese, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  3. Rinse and dry the baby bella mushrooms with paper towels. Remove stems and chop the stems finely. Place the chopped stems in a medium mixing bowl and set aside.

  4. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add minced garlic and switch to low heat and cook for 2 minutes, allowing the butter to be infused by the garlic.

  6. Stir in egg and mayonnaise. Mix again until all ingredients are blended evenly.

These stuffed mushrooms look so tasty. I would love to try them. I love mushrooms, especially portabello mushrooms. I agree they may be too big to eat as finger food but you could make this dish as a general starter for a dinner party instead of a cocktail party. It's a great idea. I never thought of stuffing mushrooms with crab and I like that suggestion.

These look AMAZING... also, it combines two of my favorite things mushrooms and crab YUM.

These Crab Stuffed Mushrooms are absolutely DELICIOUS!! We had a bit of a drinks party over the weekend and even after they had all been eaten our guests were still asking for more. That is great confirmation that they were devoured with gusto and I will definitely be making them again. The only change I made was to used fresh crab, instead of canned, but simply because it was available to me. I am sure they will be just as good using the tinned variety.
