Stuffed Mushrooms - 2

Another Stuffed Mushroom recipe

Four very large mushrooms, preferably not flat ones.
Carefully oil the base of the mushrooms, I find it easier just using my fingers and place on a baking tray.

I a pan gently soften an onion.  When soften add a tin of chopped tomatoes.

Add handful of breadcrumbs to thicken the mixture, I always keep some in the freezer.  

Fill the mushrooms

Add grated cheese

Bake till golden brown and bubbling

I substituted almond essence for a desert spoon water and I used butter in the topping, and used Bertolli margerine to make the cake and added a few glace cherries. 

The recipe is from The Stork Wartime Cookery Book
