Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Loaded with a creamy and cheesy filling, these Crab Stuffed Mushrooms are one of most popular appetizers at any party or get-together.  Jumbo lump crab meat is mixed together with cream cheese, stuffed into white button or baby bella mushrooms caps, and then baked in the oven.  They make the best low-carb, keto, and gluten-free snack that can also be prepped ahead of time!

  • 16 oz. mushrooms small-medium, about 15-20*
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 4 oz. cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup + 2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese grated, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice fresh
  • ½ tsp. salt to taste
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 8 oz. lump crab meat canned or fresh
  • 2 Tbsp. green onions or chives, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. Panko breadcrumbs gluten free if needed


  1. Preheat oven to 375 °F

  2. Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel to remove any dirt and debris.

  3. Remove the stems from the mushrooms by pulling them to one side and then snapping them off. You can also use a knife to cut them off if the stems do not snap easily.
  4. Place mushrooms on a large baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper.

  5. In a medium-sized bowl mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, garlic, paprika, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  6. Add crabmeat and green onions. Mix delicately until just combined so the crabmeat does not break apart too much.
  7. Fill each mushroom cap with 1 to 1 ½ tablespoons of the crabmeat filling mixture. Pay careful attention not to fill them up with more filling than they are tall to prevent overflow while baking.
  8. Whisk together 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese with 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs. Sprinkle about a teaspoon over each filled mushroom.
  9. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the tops become crispy and golden brown.
  10. Serve with additional chopped chives and a sprinkle of paprika. Enjoy!
