35 fresh mushrooms 1/4 cup celery, finely chopped 2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped 2 tablespoons red bell pepper, finely chopped 1/2 pound crab claw meat 2 cups oyster crackers crushed 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 egg 1/2 cup water 6 slices white cheddar cheese

While vegetables cool, wash mushrooms and remove stems. Set caps to the side and finely chop half of the stems. Discard the other half of the stems or use elsewhere. Combine the sauteed vegetables, chopped mushroom stems, and all other ingredients (except cheese slices) and mix well.
Place mushroom caps in individual buttered casseroles or baking dishes. Spoon 1 teaspoon of stuffing into each mushroom. Cover with sliced cheese.

I tried this with pasteurized canned crab claw meat and it tasted kinda fishy. I think I'll try fresh or frozen crab next time, the recipe doesn't specify. I liked the filling overall as it had a good texture but the crab I used just wasn't quite right.

I just made these and OMG! These are phenomenal! Still eating as we speak, I didn't have old bay seasoning so I used sweet paprika,a pinch of cayenne pepper and thru in a bay leaf while the onions and red bell peppers cooked and discarded the bay leaf after. They turned out excellent!

I didn't have oyster crackers so I just used saltines and these turned out very good.

This is an extremely good recipe. If you'll notice, it doesn't say how much butter, so it's anything goes! Also, I also noticed Red Lobster uses Monterey Jack cheese. Well! It put it over the edge.

If you look at Red Lobster's menu, you will find that they describe the stuffed mushrooms as "smothered in melted Jack cheese." This is a much better choice than cheddar.

My son (48) just built a garage. The bar isn't in yet but the stove and countertop are in. He made these mushrooms and they are absolutely one of my favorite recipes he makes. Thank you for posting this.

I think that these turned out really well, I only rated it a 4 because the directions are a little confusing..I did not know how much butter to use.. and the mushrooms turned out rubbery like.
I do remember red lobsters mushrooms being in a buttery sauce or juices. mine was very dry, But they did taste very good..Thank you for the recipe.

I was unable to find white cheddar cheese so I used mozarella. While they were cooking in the oven it smelled just like I was at Red Lobster! Well they turned out AMAZING! Thanks for helping me create my favorite appetizer from RL! :-)
