Traeger Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

I am such a fan of appetizers, and especially appetizers we can make on the grill. These feature classic flavors from all of your favorite stuffed mushrooms, but you can cook them outside right on your pellet grill or smoker. You’ll get a touch of smoke from the live fire without it being overwhelming to the mushroom and crab filling.

We have a lot of great Traeger Appetizer Recipes here, too, so stick around a while and start planning!

How to make Stuffed Mushrooms on the Traeger

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.


We are going to cook these fairly hot, so preheat to 375°F.

(If you like very strong smoke flavor, cook these for 20 minutes at 220°F and then crank it up to 375° after that.)


Snap the stems off of the mushrooms. Discard.

Mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, seasonings, and Parmesan cheese.

Stir in the crab and panko.

Put spoonfuls of the crab mixture into the hollowed out mushrooms. Place the filled mushrooms on a parchment-lined baking sheet.


Put the baking sheet onto the Traeger and close the lid. Cook for 25 minutes.


If you like toasty tops on your mushrooms, you could put these under a broiler for a minute or two, but we didn’t find it necessary. These were delicious straight out of the pellet grill (after they cool off a bit, of course)!

Pellet Grill Stuffed Mushrooms FAQ

How do you store leftovers?

Store any leftovers in a covered container in the fridge for up to 2-3 days.

What’s the best way to reheat leftovers?

Heat these back up in the oven or in the Traeger for the best results. An air fryer would also work well! Skip the microwave, trust me.
