Keto Crab and Gouda Stuffed Mushroom Recipe

My husband LOVES stuffed mushrooms, and I wanted to find something special to make for him for Father’s Day. These crab stuffed portobello mushrooms are just the thing! They are low-carb and keto diet friendly, incredibly flavorful, and savory, and they are also an easy keto recipe to prepare.

A lot of stuffed mushroom recipes call for lots of cream cheese or mozzarella, and I wanted these to be tangier and stand out from the crowd. The Gouda fits the bill, plus it’s Stacey’s favorite cheese.

These crab and Gouda stuffed mushrooms are a great appetizer for a holiday or special occasion, or you can use them as a keto-friendly side dish. Either way, they’ll disappear fast!

We’ll be enjoying these babies on our Father’s Day with a juicy grilled steak, braised kale with bacon, and probably a good bourbon. That sounds like a Keto Father’s Day celebration to me!
