  • 1 cup fresh crab meat

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Clean the mushrooms and remove the stems. Place the mushrooms on a greased cookie sheet and set aside.

Melt the butter in a medium sized sauce pan on medium low heat. Saute' the onions until they are translucent, then add the garlic and lightly saute'.

Remove from heat and add the bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, crab meat and cheese; mix well.

Generously fill the mushrooms with the mixture, packing it down.

Broil on low for 5-7 minutes until lightly golden browned on top. Or add them in the summertime to the top rack of your grill!

Garnish with finely chopped tomatoes and fresh basil.

The crab filling can be refrigerated for up to 2 days prior to cooking.
