Cheesy Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

This is one of the sides I had at Christmas dinner. It was delish and would also make a great appetizer.


1 container of white button mushrooms approx 14 mushrooms. Cleaned and stems removed
4 oz cream cheese softened
3 green onions
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp Old Bay spice
1/2 cup blue crab
2 tbsp parmesan, grated
2 tbsp butter melted


1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
2. Mix the cream cheese, green onions, lemon juice, Old Bay, and 1 tbsp of the parmesan until well combined. Fold in the crab meat.
3. Dip the mushroom caps in to the melted butter, then stuff them with the crab mixture. Repeat until all of them are finished. Top them with the remaining parmesan.
4. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes intil liquid collects under the mushrooms. Turn on the broiler for a few minutes to get the tops lightly golden.

Great served with ham, or as an appetizer.  You can reserve the mushroom stems to make broth or add them chopped up to a soup or maybe a philly cheese steak melt.

Each mushroom has 0.5 Net carbs.
