You will notice that we used imitation crab meat when we made these. There is a reason for that. Real crab meat is expensive and while I love the taste of it, I also like cheap family meals. So for the purposes of this post, we’re going imitation. If you would prefer to use real crab meat, go ahead. It won’t change the recipe at all. Preparation is the same and I’m 100% positive that they’ll taste even better!

You Will Need:

To start, remove the stems from your mushrooms and set aside. Don’t toss them. You’ll use them later in the recipe. Wash your mushrooms, drain well and dry. Preheat your oven to 400°F.

In a medium skillet, heat the oil and butter together over medium/low heat until the butter is melted. Saute’ the celery, onion and red pepper until soft. When they’re just about softened, add the minced garlic and saute’ for a few minutes longer.

Next, chop half of the mushroom stems that you set aside earlier and mix them in a medium mixing bowl along with the remaining ingredients except for the provolone cheese.

Stir well to combine the mixture. Make sure that you give it more than a couple of stirs. You really want to get it mixed well so that you don’t have any clumps of flavor and instead have a good mixture of flavor.

Stuff each mushroom with the stem/pepper/onion/crab mixture. It’s okay if your mushrooms are overflowing a bit.

Cut each piece of provolone cheese into fourths and top each mushroom with 1/4 of a piece of provolone. Bake at 400°F 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is slightly brown and the mushrooms are heated throughout. Serve your copycat Red Lobster stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer or along side your favorite dish!

See? Amazingly easy, right? This is one of the easiest copycat Red Lobster recipes that I’ve ever come across and it is totally worth trying the next time you’re looking for a new restaurant copycat recipe to add to your menu.
