  • Place about a teaspoonful of the crab mixture into each mushroom cap. Place stuffed mushrooms on prepared baking sheet. Continue to stuff all mushrooms.
  • Combine the Panko breadcrumb and melted butter, brush butter mixture on the top of each mushrooms.
  • Bake stuffed mushrooms in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Mushrooms will be golden brown.

Note 1:  We add the  Panko/butter combo - my youngest loves the crunch. If needed to limit carbs or you are keto don't add the panko mixture.   
Note 2:  Canned crabmeat is cost-effective and works great in this recipe.  If you prefer, use fresh crab.
