1. Remove the stems from the mushrooms. Rinse and dry each mushroom, then rub with olive oil. Stuff a cube of cheese into the opening of each mushroom. Give it a firm push into the mushroom. 2. In a bowl, combine the Crab Cake Stuffing ingredients. If using real crabmeat, combine carefully so the lump crab doesn’t break apart. 3. Divide the crab mixture into 12 portions. Roll into a meatball shape and press each crab ball into the top of each mushroom. Sprinkle with paprika. 4. Preheat the barbecue grill to medium heat. Grill the mushrooms for approximately 15 minutes. Carefully remove and enjoy. Makes 12 mushrooms.
