Original recipe yields 18 stuffed mushrooms



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook and stir the garlic in the butter until tender.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix garlic and butter, chili powder, 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, Italian-style breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Increase the amount of mayonnaise, if desired. Fold in the crabmeat.
  4. Stuff mushroom caps generously with the mixture from the bowl.
  5. Pour cooking sherry in a large baking dish. Arrange stuffed mushroom caps, stuffing side up, in the baking dish. Top with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
  6. Raise oven temperature to broil. Continue cooking mushrooms 3 to 5 minutes, or until stuffing is bubbly and lightly browned. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

I diverted from this recipe some... Customized it to my liking. I used Parmesan cheese, and smoked pepper jack, no Italian seasoning, sherry, or chili powder, I used a couple of teaspoons of hot sauce instead. The way the ingredients collaborated just tasted so divine! I will try to make the next batch like John posted it just to see if I like them.



What more can I say? These were incredible! I did add a little cayenne and a bit of sherry to the mixture as well. Make sure you purchase a good brand of crab. Good goin' John!



Excellent! Excellent! Emeril Who?
