Crab Stuffed Portobellos

Since I'm making them now, I thought I'd share this simple and simply delicious recipe!

The amounts are non-specific because it really depends on how many mushrooms you want to stuff and what kind of crabmeat you're using. Most of the time when I make these, it's because I've bought crab legs on sale and we didn't eat them all so I just use that meat. (Tonight I used 1 can of crabmeat and 6 baby portobellos.) I usually just tell this to people; I never have to write it down lol.


  • 1 package Knorr's Béarnaise Sauce
  • Crabmeat
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Prepare Béarnaise Sauce according to package directions. (It makes a cup, so if you make it from scratch you may have more depending on recipe.)
  2. Clean all the black spines from the bottom of the mushroom (stuffed or not, they are what turns the mushroom black when cooking.)
  3. Mix the Béarnaise sauce into the crabmeat a little at a time, taking care not to make it soupy. Add 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese and mix. You can add more cheese, but remember too much cheese (and sauce) will make it run out of the mushroom, tastes fine, looks strange. Mixture should be firm but not stiff, add sauce if necessary.
  4. Stuff mushrooms and bake at 450 degrees F until done, about 20 minutes.

I tried putting the cheese on the mushrooms instead of in the crabmeat, but the large ones take so long to cook, the cheese burned on the cookie sheet.
