When the mushrooms are finished cooking drain the liquid from the pan and set the mushrooms aside.
Don’t turn off the oven yet. You’ll need it for step 4.

2.On low heat on the stovetop melt, the butter in a medium-size saucepan.
Add the vegetables, cook using medium heat and stir continuously until the veggies are soft. Add the crabmeat, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, seasoning to your liking (salt, pepper, garlic powder and Louisiana Cajun Season), and the cap full of crab boil.
Stir until the crabmeat is warm then remove the pan from the stovetop. Don’t forget to turn off the stovetop.
3.Pour the crab meat mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add the egg and breadcrumbs, mix all the ingredients well.
4. Place the mushrooms on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, face the mushrooms upward.
Using a clean hand or a gloved hand, take some of the crabmeat and form a mound on top of each mushroom.
Make sure to spread the crabmeat mixture evenly on each mushroom.
Sprinkle a little breadcrumb and parmesan cheese on top the mushrooms.
Cook the mushrooms for 10 minutes. When the mushrooms are finished cooking, remove them carefully from the oven with oven mitts.
Serve as an appetizer or with a salad and your favorite vegetable.
