How to make stuffed mushrooms in an air fryer:

  • Your mushrooms need to be washed and the stems need to be removed. Removing the stems will make a pocket for the mushrooms to be filled with.
  • Put the mushrooms and melted butter in a bowl. Toss the mushrooms until they are fully coated in the butter.

  • Space them evenly in the air fryer and cook for 5 minutes.

Questions and answers for this recipe:

Can you substitute the crab with imitation crab?

Of course! No other changes are necessary to the recipe if you do this, however this will likely affect the crab count. We recommend real crab, if you’re counting carbs.

What other substitutions can I make?

These keto stuffed mushrooms are easy to customize! Double the shrimp and skip the crab, or vice versa. Use beef or chicken instead of seafood. Change up the spices to suit your tastes. Swap the cheddar for another type of cheese.

What should I do with extra filling?

Mushrooms come in different sizes, so getting the exact right amount of filling can be tricky, but no worry. Use the extra as a dip! Grab crackers or tortilla chips and dig in! Alternately, make more mushrooms. You can never have too many!

This recipe makes 5 servings and cooks about 20 mushrooms. This will take a good-sized air fryer. We use and love the 6 qt. OMORC air fryer. It’s a good size, quiet, and works well. It is also dishwasher safe, which is critical in my house!
