Add the bread to a food processor and whizz into breadcrumbs. Add the Cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs and stir to combine.
Once the mushrooms have turned lightly golden and softened, add them to an ovenproof dish. Pour over the cream cheese mixture and stir to coat the mushrooms.

Hi. Just made this and it looked nice however when I tucked into it the inside was full of water more than likely because of the mushrooms which made the breadcrumb like porridge. Any tips on how to fix this. Thanks!

Hey Matthew, you need to fry the mushrooms to release any excess moisture before adding the cheese mixture and breadcrumb top this will stop them releasing as much water in the oven. Hope that helps!
