  4. Stuff the mushroom caps with the crabmeat mixture. Sprinkle the stuffed caps with Parmesan cheese. In a shallow pan, bake the caps at 400 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until hot.

These are great appetizers. I ommitted the pimento and the water chestnuts, adding a bit more parmesan.

They were pretty good but I had better. I added a bit more cream cheese, used lump crab and left out the water chestnuts. Maybe adding another squeeze of mustard but with the price of crab I may try with imatiation crab and tweet flavor a bit more.

I used about 1/2 cup green onions no pimentos or water chestnuts. I put a litle parm cheese in the crab mix while cooking it plus a healthy amount of garlic and onion powders. I also used some sesame oil in the bottom of the baking dish along with several pats of butter. Had to drain it after about 35 minutes in the oven at 325 covered, finished it off for 10 minutes under the broiler at 400 to give it some brown. I loved these! This recipe was a great place to start for me. Careful with the dijon mustard though...

These are FANTASTIC!!!! Even my boyfriend, who is terribly finicky, loved these. Also, you can put them together and refrigerate them until you are ready to bake them. WONDERFUL!

This recipe was good, but not great. It was somewhat bland.

Too much trouble. Too many other ingredients interfere with the dleicate flavor of the crab.

This recipe is very easy! This was a test for my Super Bowl Buffet menu. They were a big hit. So these crab stuffed mushrooms will hit the buffet table for the Big Game!
