Remember those crispy yet moist crab cake that you used to have? How about a twist and bring those on top of the juicy delicious mushroom. This crab stuffed mushroom with cream cheese will be so heartily yum that it would melt in your mouth.
Fall is the best season for this dish, however with some crab in the can, who say you can’t make this in summer? My little boys love the crispy of the crab cake filling so much that he would eat the filling in a bite or two. Then mama got to eat double the mushroom. Luckily with the juice from the crab and Old bay infused onto the mushroom, its taste just too alluring to pass.
Yup, you’d have a whole family happy enjoying this baking recipe, whether they love bake mushroom or the crab cake, cause they come together as one stuffing ^.^
