Remove the stalks from the mushrooms at set aside. Place the stalks into a food processor and mince finely, set aside. Mince the apples and walnuts finely as well, set aside. Mince the green onion, set aside.
Cut the butter in half, and put one half in a small pan to melt. Half the remaining half of butter and put it into a saute pan. Add half the shallots and half the oil, and saute just until the shallots turn translucent, about 30 seconds. Add the mushroom caps to the pan (you will probably have to do that in two or more batches), and swirl/shake the pan so that all get a little butter/shallot on them. Place these on a cookie sheet, and continue with remaining caps until all the caps have some butter/shallot on them.
Take the remaining oil, butter and shallot and put it in the same saute pan, and saute until the shallot is translucent. Add the minced mushrooms, green onions, Italian seasoning, salt, apple and walnut. Add the sherry and saute for about five minutes, or until the mushrooms have released their juice, and that juice has been reabsorbed.
Put into a bowl and add the bread crumbs and melted butter. Mix thoroughly, then start stuffing the mushroom caps.
Put into a 350 oven and bake for 20 minutes. Cool before eating.
Substitute Herbs de Provence and add blue cheese for a French version.
Substitute pan roasted pinenuts for walnuts, celery for apples, add basil and use olive oil to make a Pesto version.
To freeze, put the mushrooms on a cookie sheet. Freeze them uncovered on the cookie sheet, just until frozen, about 1 hour. Place them between layers of wax paper in a storage container and return to the freezer.
