Drizzle a teaspoon of olive oil over each mushroom and season lightly.
Step 2) Peel away the skin from the black pudding and chop or crumble into small pieces. Mix with the tomatoes and pile on to the mushrooms. Spoon the shallot mixture on top and drizzle with the remaining oil. Bake for around 20 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender.
