That said, if you’re still planning your Christmas menu, these beauties would make a great appetizer.
I’ve made a lot of appetizers/party food to share with all of you, but my mother recently pointed out that I need to include my crab stuffed mushrooms because she came looking for the recipe when she was planning her Thanksgiving dinner and there where no crab stuffed mushrooms to be seen! I promised to resolved that 🙂
Thse crab stuffed mushrooms are amazing! I’m telling you they have to be tried and once you do, you’ll make them again and again!
This is such a simple recipe, you can prepare it really quickly for a dinner party or you can make it for a light lunch for two – believe me on that one because guess what my husband and I did just as soon as I was done shooting the photos? 🙂

Making these Easy Crab Stuffed Mushrooms couldn’t be simpler. And to make thing even simpler, my recipe uses canned crab! That’s right – canned (although you can use the ready cooked stuff you get in the grocery store.
Add the crab meat to a bowl with the chopped piquante peppers, chives, green onions, mayonnaise, lemon zest and lemon juice.
Top them with Parmesan cheese, and bake.
When we were enjoying these mushrooms, my husband said that these would make great crab cakes. They are similar to my Easy Crab Cakes recipe, but different so don’t be surprised if in the very near future, I make another easy crab cake recipe because I think my husband is on to something!
