I prepared according to the recipe. I decided to taste the stuffing BEFORE I put into the mushrooms. Am I ever glad I did! It was terrible. It was also painful to throw away wasting the costly crabmeat etc. ingred. At least the mushrooms did not go to waste. I did not like the taste of the mayonnaise and parmesan together. Just too overpowering. UCK!
