These are always a hit at every gathering that I've made them for. Make sure that you use more crab than cream cheese.

These are great! I fried the onions first and added about a cup of breadcrumbs. I agree with the other review, the water on the pan is not necessary. My advice: be generous with the tabasco sauce! It gives it a really great kick, and it won't be too spicy because the cream cheese and mayo evens it out. I added about 15 splashes in mine and it was great. I made about 50 for a potluck in Chile, and they lasted about 5 minutes!

These are GREAT stuffed mushrooms! They are easy to throw together and have a fabulous flavor. I used imitation crab meat and neufchatel cheese. I did add 1 minced garlic clove. The mushrooms make a lot of juice themselves so I'm not sure the water in the pan was needed. Made for the Went to the market game.
