1 shallot, minced
4 Tablespoons butter
4 oz cream cheese, cut into small pieces

Wipe mushrooms clean with a damp towel. Take stems off and finely chop, set aside.
Melt butter in large saucepan and add sausage and shallot. Cook till sausage is almost done ( it will cook more in the oven) Add cream cheese, crushed crackers, sage, salt and pepper. Fill caps and bake in 350 oven for approx. 20 minutes. Place under broiler for a couple minutes if you like the topping a bit crispy..
