I agree about precooking. A Portabella is a BIG 'shroom. I used the smaller Criminis with a crab stuffing that came out awesome.
A Portabella or two stuffed with crabcake mixture would be out of this world. The bigger Portabella has a lot
I'd bake the 'shrooms partway and then scoop the stuffing in off of a tablespoon (don't burn yourself). Give it a few more minutes in the oven to make sure the stuffing is warm through, then turn on the broiler for just long enough to crisp up the stuffing.
