Crab stuffed mushrooms seasoned and roasted to perfection. A quick and delicious appetizer or snack option that will impress your guests. I enjoy these on their own but they also pair lovely with steak or chicken.
I’m always looking for meal ideas that are appetizing and easy to make. When you use good ingredients like fresh mushrooms and real crab meat, you’re bound to have a successful meal. These stuffed mushrooms were absolutely exquisite!
What Mushrooms Should I Use?
I used 8 ounces of cremini mushrooms but the possibilities are endless. Just make sure to remove the stems and clean the mushrooms with a damp paper towel by rubbing on them gently.
How Do I Stuff Mushrooms?
You can either use a mini melon ball scooper or form small balls of crab with your hands. Some people chop the stems of the mushrooms and add them to the filling. I prefer stuffing them with only crab meat.
Is This Recipe Low Carb?
Because I used Ritz crackers for this recipe, it is not low carb. However, if you omit the crackers this can be low carb and keto-friendly.
- Use any kind of crab your budget allows for. Imitation crab meat, lump crab meat, or canned crab works for this recipe.
- Make sure you bake the mushrooms for 8 minutes before stuffing them so they release some of their liquid.
- Use saltine crackers or panko breadcrumbs if you don’t have Ritz crackers on hand.
- I recently made stuffed crab shrimp with sauce and I just know that you will love that sauce recipe. You can serve these crab stuffed mushrooms with that delicious cajun cream sauce.
- Add some fresh herbs such as thyme and parsley for some extra flavor and color!
