This is an old recipe I got from my daughter.

16 large mushroom caps
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups flaked crabmeat
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs, divided
3 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp butter, chilled

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a large baking dish.

Dip the mushroom caps in the melted butter then place them, rounded side down, in the prepared baking dish.

Combine the crabmeat, eggs, green onions, half the bread crumbs, the mayonnaise and lemon juice in a medium-size bowl and mix together thoroughly.  Fill the mushroom caps with this mixture.  Sprinkle the remaining half of the bread crumbs over the mushrooms and dot with the chilled butter. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until the crumbs are golden brown.  Serve while hot.
