Stuffed Baby Bella Mushrooms

As promised – my stuffed mushrooms🍄 recipe! I do not use frozen crab cakes as my cheat for this recipe. I do make my own filling for stuffed baby bellas!

Mushroom Crab Filling🦀

I combine all the ingredients below to make the filling. This recipe usually makes about 2-3 8oz. packages of baby bella mushrooms, depending on their size and how much filling you put in them. Sometimes my filling to mushroom ratio needs to be pretty even or heavier on the crab filling side.😆

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • Grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • 8 oz. lump crab meat

I like to mix everything together, but the crab meat. I add that last so it stays in bigger lumps and doesn’t break apart. I will taste the filling to see if any more salt, pepper or old bay needs to be added. Sometimes I will take the stems of the mushrooms, finely chop them and add them into the filling mixture, if I choose not to save them for a stir fry. I don’t like to waste any part of the mushroom!

Preheat the oven to 375. Remove the stems and some of the inside of each baby bella mushroom cap. Use a bit of EVOO on the bottom of each cap and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Fill each cap with the filling and top with some more cheese. If I have any left over filling and I do not buy more mushrooms, I do freeze it for another time! Bake the mushroom caps for about 20 minutes and enjoy!
