Ingredients

  • 10 ounce package mushrooms about 15 small mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup shallots minced
  • 1/3 cup red pepper diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 ounces low-fat cream cheese softened
  • 6-8 ounce can crab meat drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional topping:
  • 3 Tablespoon Panko breadcrumb
  • 1 teaspoon melted butted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper or spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  • In a skillet, over medium heat, melt the unsalted butter.
  • Add the shallots and red pepper. Saute for about 4 minutes. Onions become translucent and red pepper softens.
  • Add the minced garlic for another minute.
  • Remove from heat and let cool.
  • While onion/red pepper mix cools, clean the mushrooms. Wipe mushrooms with a paper towel. Remove the stems from the mushrooms and discard.
  • In a bowl, combine the cooled onion/red pepper mix, add the softened low-fat cream cheese, Old Bay Seasoning, salt, and pepper - to taste. Mix well.
  • Place about a teaspoonful of the mixture into each mushroom head. Place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Continue until all mushrooms are full.
  • Optional: Combine the Panko breadcrumb and melted butter and brush onto the tops of the mushrooms.
  • Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes. Mushrooms will be golden brown.

Notes

  •  I added the optional Panko/butter combo - my youngest loves the crunch. It is up to your taste buds. I just limit my carbs...age does that to me :)
  •  I alternate in my photos, some have the breadcrumb, so you can see the two different tops in the photos.
  • I personally find canned crabmeat, drained works best for me and cost-effective.
