Amazingly Simple and Delicious Stuffed Mushroom Caps - with a spin suggestion for those who don't like mushrooms

This recipe is exceptionally tasty and simple to make.  Mushroom Caps are a hit at any get together, but for those who don't find mushrooms appealling then follow the *two simple steps* in the instructions below and be host with the most!


2 dozen medium white mushrooms - destemmed

2  250g pkg of Herb and Garlic Cream Cheese

1 can of crabmeat or 1 cup of prawns - raw, diced

1/2 pkg of bacon - cooked, diced

1 red pepper diced

1 tsp of margarine

2 tbsp of Cajun Seasoning

Pinch of Salt and Pepper

Parmesan Cheese


  • If using mushrooms, clean and de-stem (You can dice the stems and add them to the mix while cooking if preferred)
  • Heat margarine over medium heat in a skillet. Add red peppers, sautee until tender
  • Add Herb and Garlic Cream Cheese, stirring constantly
  • Once melted add the bacon, crab or prawn meat and Cajun Seasoning
  • Simmer on low, stirring frequently, until it begins to thicken to the right consistency
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Remove from heat, let cool somewhat so as not to burn yourself while handling, then spoon into caps spread out on cookie sheet
  • Sprinkle tops with parmesan cheese and bake at 350 until the bottoms of the mushrooms are browned, which helps prevent them from becoming mushy.

*Tip for those that don't like mushrooms*:  Instead of using mushrooms, get tortilla shells and spread the mix approximately 1 cm thick.  Roll the tortilla up and then slice into rings.  This way can be served hot or cold.  Very popular trick with your guests!

Wow--these sound absolutely delicious. I am not a fan of mushrooms in general but for some reason love pretty much every kind of stuffed mushroom I have ever tried. My mother in law makes some with sausage that are to die for. I shall have to try these, they sound fantastic.
