Perfect for entertaining, these stuffed mushrooms are brimming with tender, lump crab meat and a garlicky Panko topping! This post is written in partnership with Erath wine.
When it comes to celebrating the holidays with my family, it always comes back to the food for me. From delicious appetizers like my bacon-wrapped potatoes, to decadent desserts like this vegan chocolate mousse, and everything in between, there is nothing quite like getting together with those you love to enjoy a meal.
While the holidays may look a bit different this year, one thing is for sure: I will still be keeping my intimate gatherings merry and bright with the help of a little red wine. Luckily, Erath wine has the perfect selection to meet all your holiday needs. Located in Portland, Oregon, Erath has cultivated its land for over 40 years in order to deliver the finest wines right to your door. Great for cooking and sipping alike, there’s no better wine for the season.
When picking a recipe to pair perfectly with Erath pinot noir, I immediately thought of mushrooms. Earthy, meaty, and easy to find all year round, nothing says festive quite like an over-stuffed mushroom filled with tender crab.
If you’ve never made stuffed mushrooms at home, don’t be intimated! They are versatile, easy and come together in 30 minutes or less. That’s it!
So, go ahead and pour yourself a glass! Even better, pair it with these high-protein stuffed mushrooms for a healthy snack. Who knew self-care could be so tasty?
What type of mushrooms work best?
Button, Cremini, or Portabella mushrooms work best with this recipe as their shape easily holds the stuffing, and their flavor is subtle unlike hearty mushrooms such as Shiitake or Oyster.
Can I serve these with white wine instead?
Of course, serve them however you prefer! In fact, Erath has a wonderful selection of white wines as well. However, the richness of red wine works best in order to bring out and compliment the meaty flavor of mushrooms.
Can these be made ahead of time?
I would not recommend making this recipe far in advance. It is likely that the mushrooms would become soggy. In addition, reheating them may cause them to burn!
These stuffed mushrooms are guaranteed to be a hit at any party, but don’t forget to bring a gift! Luckily, Erath ships across the United States. So, you can share your favorite flavor with a friend, or let them pick their own. Either way, they won’t be disappointed!
Your fork is waiting. Cheers!
Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
- 32 mushrooms (stuffing size (larger the better!))
