  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Wash your mushrooms and carefully take off the stems. Toss the mushrooms lightly in olive oil and set aside.

  3. Preheat a saute pan and 1 tbsp of olive oil on medium high heat. Saute the finely chopped mushrooms and onion until starting to caramelize. Press garlic into the onion/mushroom mixture and saute just until fragrant. Set veggies aside.

  4. In a mixing bowl, combine crab meat, cooked veggies, cream cheese, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, dill weed, parsley, egg, salt, and pepper. Mix very well until all combined.

  5. Place the mushroom cups into the baking dish. Carefully fill the cups with the mixture pressing down lightly with your finger to fit a little bit more.

  6. Grate some fresh Parmesan over the mushrooms.
  7. Bake crab stuffed mushrooms for about 20-25 minutes making sure that the mushrooms are completely cooked and hot throughout. (If you are using smaller mushrooms then adjust the time accordingly since they will bake faster.)
