  • 1. Preheat oven to 375F. Mark 5.

  • 2. Brush the mushroom caps with melted butter. Place them, hollow-side up, in the roasting tin. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

  • 3. Sauté the onions in butter and oil for 3 to 4 minutes without browning. Then add the shallots or spring onions and mushroom stems.

  • 4. Add the optional Madeira and boil it down rapidly until it has almost entirely evaporated.

  • 5. Away from heat, mix in the breadcrumbs, cheeses, parsley, tarragon, and seasonings. A spoonful at a time, blend in just enough cream to moisten the mixture but keep it sufficiently stiff to hold its shape in a spoon. Correct seasoning.

  • 6. Fill the mushroom caps with stuffing. Top each with a pinch of cheese and drops of melted butter.

  • 7. Bake in upper part of a preheated, 375F., Mark 5 oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until caps are tender and stuffing has browned lightly on top.
