Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Put mushrooms in pan snug enough to hold them and place in heated oven to shrink a bit while making filling. They should precook about 30 minutes or so. After this, you can drain, cool and put them in an air-tight container in the fridge for one day before filling.
Pu onion in pan with oil over medium heat and start to gently cook them. Chop mushroom stems finely and add to pan, stirring to combine.
Chop garlic finely, add to pan after a couple of minutes. Add more garlic to taste. Stir occasionally and chop Rosemary and thyme. Add Rosemary and half the thyme to pan. If you have no fresh thyme, put on a light sprinkle of ground thyme. Add in the Mediterranean spices and salt and pepper to taste. Cook and stir a few more minutes, until garlic does not taste raw.
In medium sized bowl add cream cheese, put in the warm filling and mash together. Add the Worcestershire sauce and mash some more. Add in 2 Tbsp or so of dried breadcrumbs and mash in to make filling firm. IF using canned crab or chopped shrimp, add in first before the breadcrumbs and adjust texture accordingly.
Remove mushrooms from oven and drain them, saving the liquor for another use. Fill mushroom caps and sprinkle with the balance of the breadcrumbs. Drizzle 1/2 the melted butter over top and return to oven for 35 minutes or so, until cooked. You will need to adjust time per the size of your mushrooms. Remove from oven in the last 5 minutes or so and sprinkle on the cheese to melt. Drizzle the rest of the melted butter and rerun to oven until done. Sprinkle with the thyme leaves or before baking a light sprinkle of ground thyme.
