Cook crawfish in boiling court bouillon 10 minutes, then cool.
Reserve 1 cup bouillon.
Heat butter and oil in a skillet; saute liver and mushrooms until liver is firm on the outside and pink inside.
Season with parsley, marjoram, rosemary, salt, and peppers.
Soak bread slices in reserved bouillon; stir to break up bread.
Process soaked bread with bouillon and liver mushroom mixture, a little at a time, in an electric blender or force through a food mill.
Stir in egg.
Spread mixture on bottom of a shallow baking dish.
Arrange crawfish decoratively on top.
Sprinkle with a mixture of bread crumbs and cheese.
