I am not sure where I found the original version of this recipe, probably some cooking magazine or newspaper, 25-30 years ago

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onion, mushroom stems, and crabmeat in butter until onion is transparent.
  2. Mix in salt, pepper, parsley, basil, lemon juice, Worcestershire and Tabasco.
  3. Add flour, and cook over medium heat about for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Slowly add milk, whisking constantly; mixture should be very thick.
  5. Add Parmesan cheese, and cook over low heat, for 5 minutes longer, stirring constantly.
  6. Remove from heat, and add wine as desired to taste, so mixture still remains quite thick, and then adjust all seasonings to taste.
  7. Spoon into mushroom caps, and sprinkle with chopped almonds.
  8. Bake at 350-375 degrees F for about 15 minutes or until top starts to brown a little, being careful that almonds do not burn.
  9. Variation: I actually like this version better than the crab!
  10. Replace crab with 8 oz cooked shrimp, peeled, deveined, and chopped.
  11. It's just a matter of preference, but I like it!

I have tried many, many recipes for crab stuffed mushrooms and been disappointed every time. I am not disappointed this time. These are the very best I have ever had, anywhere. Thanks! Toby, I don't know who you are and, if you are still on Zaar at all, but I must tell you that I have made numerous of your recipes and love all of them. You are my favorite Unknown Chef. Thanks so much. QDM
