"Absolutely delicious! ! I used reduced fat cream cheese, and I used regular crab legs. The canned was 9.99 a piece, where the crab legs were on sale for 6.99 a lb. Score!! A little extra work but oh so worth it!! I didn't have any seasoned bread crumbs so I seasoned plain with Emeril's Essence. Yum!"

"If I could give this 6 stars I would. I used panko bread crumbs and added a tsp of dried parsley flakes instead of the seasoned bread crumbs. I also substituted green onion for the sweet onion. This recipe is restaurant quality."

"Made this recipe as is the first time and found it a bit bland. Used Italian bread crumbs as that is what I had on hand. The second time I made them I decreased the bread crumbs to 1/3c, increased the parmesan to 3/4c and added 2 tbsp. minced fresh parsley. Added more parmesan, parsley and paprika to the top of each Portobello and they were fantastic. Great appie!"

"This is a GREAT recipe!! The only thing i will change when making them again will be to lightly wipe down the mushrooms with a light oil befor stuffing them as the skin of the mushroom dried out a little fast if they were not eaten imediately."
