3/4 cup Gruyere or Parmesan Cheese, shredded

In a small bowl, combine sauted mushroom stems and garlic with pepper, olive oil, sherry, bread crumbs and cheese. Add more bread crumbs if if too moist or more sherry if too dry. Fold in the lobster meat. Stuff mushroom caps with the lobster filling. Bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes.
Cayenne Pepper, to taste
3 tsp Baking Powder
1 Egg, beaten well
1 cup Milk
2 cups Peanut Oil, for frying
Cook, pick and chop your lobster. In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, cayenne pepper and baking powder. In another bowl, blend together the egg and milk, then stir in the lobster meat. Add this to the flour mixture and mix well. Heat the peanut oil in a large skillet until hot,but not smoking, or an electric fryer set at 365 degrees. Drop the lobster mixture by rounded tablespoonfuls into the hot oil, and fry for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Allow plenty of room in the pan for the puffs to cook.
