Recipe Ingredients

  • 12 Large White Mushrooms
  • 1 ½ sticks of butter
  • Juice from 1 Lemon
  • 1 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
  • 8 ounces crabmeat

  • Heat the oven to 375 F.
  • Wash and clean the mushrooms, removing stems and gills
  • In a medium saucepan melt the butter, Brush a little melted butter over mushroom caps (reserve remaining melted butter).
  • Spray a shallow baking dish (about 8-inch square, or one which will fit mushrooms in one layer or cupcake pan works great) with nonstick cooking spray, or grease the pan with
  • butter.
  • Combine the crab, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, lemon juice, hot sauce and remaining melted butter until all blended. Be careful not to completely break up all of the crab.
  • Fill the mushrooms, mounding the stuffing in each cap.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the crab stuffing is browned and mushroom caps are tender.
  • While mushrooms are baking prepare Hollandaise sauce according to package directions.
  • When the mushrooms are done, top each mushroom with Hollandaise, a dash of your favorite hot sauce and a sprinkle of parsley.
