How to Make Mertzie's crab chowder stuffed shrooms


  1. Drain crabmeat. I like to toss w fresh lemon juice & smoked sea salt & let sit.
  2. Sautee crab in 1 TB or more butter.Add spices. Add corn. Add cream cheese until it melts.
  3. Taste & adjust seasonings. Remove from heat. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Clean & trim mushroom caps. I had 8 stuffing mushrooms.
  5. Stuff each mushroom with mixture.
  6. Melt about 2 TB butter. Add about 6 crushed crackers & stir until it's a good consistency for topping.
  7. Top each mushroom cap with cracker breading. Bake for about 15 mins until golden brown on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  8. Enjoy!
