Stuffed Crab Mushrooms With a Touch from of Chef Paulag

Total Time

These are stuffed with tender, lump crab meat, bits of carrots, peppers, onions, and a kick from a hint of chiptole sauce and of course garlic. For the seasoned bread crumbs I used Seasoned Breadcrumb Mix #102062 by PaulaG.

Hi Rita Lovely recipe! Thanks for sharing. I made these with about 6-7 large portabella mushrooms and made as much stuffing as this recipe said and put it all in! I needed more cheese- used about one cup {i love cheese!}. Substituted cayenne pepper powder and ketchup for chipotle sauce. Did not have bell peppers so I did not use those. But with all these changes, it still tasted wonderful. Thank you.

My DH loves mushrooms and he enjoyed these! I did not add the crabmeat, used vegetable stock instead of wine, and about 1/2 the amount of chili sauce. We do not care for crabmeat but those who do will love this recipe!

These are just delicious! I made a big batch of the mushrooms for my Mom's birthday party and they were gone in minutes....everyone loved them. I made these as written, using red bell pepper and 1 Tablespoon of the chile sauce. I baked them for 30 minutes, then kept them in a warm oven for about 1/2 hour, waiting for guests to arrive, and they were just fine. I'll definitely be making these again...thanks Rita!
