I have been making a similar recipe for years, only without the cream cheese or fresh garlic. The other reviewers are right- there is no need for all that extra butter. I did find the cream cheese an interesting addition, but it makes the final product mushier. So it depends on your taste. I think next time I would use 1/2 or 3/4 only of the cream cheese amount. One big tip- use a combination of crab. I go a little light on the liquid for the stuffing. When it's done with the five minute rest, add a can of white crab meat with all of the liquid from the can. Then add 1/2 pkg of chopped imitation crab (which is real fish). This adds the texture and color of fresh, lump crab without paying 16.00 a pound. You are already adding garlic powder to taste, there is no need to sauté garlic adding butter. Add your other ingredients and top with quality parmesan and it's great. This stuffs about 3 packages of baby bella mushrooms.
