Pop the stalks out of the centre of each mushroom and spoon in the béchamel, generously filling each mushroom to the top, brushing the top edges and rim of the mushroom with the béchamel. Spoon over the breadcrumb mixture, generously covering the top of the mushroom. At this point the mushrooms can be refrigerated for up to 8 hours, so they're easy to prepare in advance
