FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I like to use white mushrooms in this recipe because I think they hold up perfectly to the filling. and are a perfect bite size. But you can also use baby bella mushrooms as well.
Canned crab meat is cheaper and easier to find in most areas of the country. If you have access to fresh lump crab meat, then you should definitely go with that for any crab cake mixture.
No, I like the flavor of them with the added garlic but I have also used seasoned regular breadcrumbs for this recipe. It gives just a slight little crunch that really takes these over the top.
Absolutely, this recipe makes roughly 18 mushrooms. If you are planning on making these for a larger crowd then I do suggest doubling.
These can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container where they will keep for up to 1-2 days. I do not recommend freezing.

I don't see why they couldn't be! I'm just guessing here but maybe start it at 370F for about 15-18 minutes and if its not long enough, just add on a couple of minutes at a time 🙂
