Twist or wiggle stems to separate from mushroom caps. Chop stems and place in medium bowl. Place mushroom caps, open side down, on ungreased baking sheet. Broil on high 1 minute until slightly moist.
Turn caps, open side up, on baking sheet. Set aside to cool.
Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and mushroom stems and cook, stirring frequently, 3 minutes. Add bread crumbs and cook, stirring frequently, 2 minutes until lightly browned. Squeeze thawed tofu to remove excess moisture. Crumble and add to skillet. Add almonds and Sherry. Stir well. Cook 1 minute, then remove from heat. Stir in cheese, soy sauce and marjoram. Stuff mixture into mushroom caps. Broil 1 to 2 minutes until lightly browned.
