Low Carb Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms


Stuffed mushrooms make for a great appetizer or small snack-style dinner, however traditional stuffed mushrooms use lots of breadcrumbs in the filling…and honestly, I don’t know why! These stuffed mushrooms, which I’ve prepared before for guests but made a small batch last night for dinner because I wasn’t terribly hungry, are filling, delicious and don’t need any carby breadcrumbs for flavor!

I am currently obsessed with our air fryer, so cooked these stuffed mushrooms in it, however you can also just pop them in the oven. Either way: deliciously satisfying!
