These were DELISH and so easy!

1 pound fresh mushrooms
1 can (6.5 oz) flaked crab
2 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
10 - 12 scallions including the crisp part of the green shoot, finely sliced (I only used about 6 becuase 10 seemed overkill...and it was still delish and I don't think it needed anymore)
dash of Tabasco
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
2. Wipe the mushrooms clean with a damp cloth and remove their stems
3. In a medium size bowl, combine the crab, cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan, scallions, Tabasco, and pepper well.
4. Spoon the mixture into the mushroom caps, and arrange them in a large, flat roasting pan. (I suggest putting some tin foil on the bottom for easy clean up later)
5. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the mushrooms are done through. Serve Hot!

Yeild: 25 - 30 smallish mushrooms each with 1 gram of carbohydrates, a trace of fiber, and 3 grams of protein. We used larger stuffing mushrooms and got 12 large ones out of this recipe.

Warning: you may be tempted to make these with "fake crab" to save money. Don't. That stuff has a ton of carbohydrates added. Spent the extra couple of bucks and use real crab.

BTW: This recipe is from an awesome cookbook I just purchase recently and so far have loved everything from it. It's called 500 Low Carb Recipes, from snacks to dessert, that the whole family will love. By Dana Carpender.

OMG, these sound amazing! I can't wait to make them! I actually bought some fresh crab at Costco, so have almost all the ingredients. I have a couple of Dana's cookbooks, but am not sure if I have this one. I have to check.

Thanks so much for posting! :-)
