If you’ve ever wondered how to make lobster stuffed mushrooms, this Lobster Stuffed Mushroom recipe is the best! It’s a great Red Lobster stuffed mushrooms copycat recipe.
Let’s call this “Lobster Week.”
No particular reason, except that I have come to the realization that lobster season opens in just under two months and I still have a fair amount of last year’s haul in my deep freeze. This is pretty much the definition of a “first world problem.”
I’ll just call it a “situation.”
So today and tomorrow, I’ll be featuring recipes starting this crustacean. Today, we will be starting off with these Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms.
I wanted to do something different, and since my Lobster Mashed Potatoes turned out so amazingly well, I thought perhaps I could do something similar with stuffed mushrooms- one of my favorite appetizers. Maybe I could take something ordinary- a veritable blank slate, if you will, and elevate it to something extraordinary.
These turned out wonderfully. They are packed with flavor, thanks to the addition of my favorite spice blend- you guessed it, Old Bay. [You’d think this blog was sponsored by them at this point, but nope!] I think there is some sort of rule that says you shouldn’t combine lobster and cheese- I say to hell with the rules! Top those off with some shredded smoked gouda!!
Resultantly, these are insanely rich and kind of filling. If you’re making these for a party, I would plan on making 2 per person.
Tools needed to make these lobster stuffed mushrooms caps:
- You really don’t need much to make this recipe! A nice cast iron skillet is always great to have for multiple recipes.
- And you’ll also need a baking dish in order to broil these stuffed mushrooms.

Oh my goodness do those look amazing or what?! Also, I’m very jealous that you have a problem of too much lobster. That has never been a thing at my house, but I really wish it was! Clearly, I need to move to the East coast, where it’s a little more prevalent!
I have made these for my wife twice now and she absolutely loves them. One thing that needs to be done that helps this recipe that is not mentioned is that I find they taste a whole lot better when the mushrooms are baked for about 10 minutes on 300 degrees. while you are preparing the mixture to stuff them with, This is absolutely a hit at my house. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe.
