Preheat your toaster oven to 350° F.
Gently pull the stems off of the cleaned mushrooms and chop finely (stems only.) Sautee the chopped stems and minced onion in the olive oil until tender. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Use your food processor to process the whole wheat bread into fine crumbs and add to onion/mushroom mixture along with the cheese, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Mix gently till well combined.
Put the water and mushroom caps in a shallow baking dish. Fill mushroom caps with the mixture, mounding over the top. Bake in your toaster oven for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
