Notes

My husband loves these stuffed mushrooms. They are the same as the recipe I used to make stuffed mushrooms when I was a vegetarian (minus the crabmeat). If you are a vegetarian, too, or just don't like seafood, these stuffed mushrooms will still taste amazing if you remove the crabmeat from the recipe. These make a great side dish to go with steak or any Italian meal.

Please note that the amounts of each of these ingredients is approximate. Usually when I make these, I just throw ingredients in a bowl until it looks and tastes right. Feel free to adjust the amount of each of these ingredients to suit your personal taste preferences.
