Preheat oven to 425°F.
Heat 2 teaspoons oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots; cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender. Add mushrooms, cook and stir 8 minutes or until softened. Stir in 1 clove garlic, 1 tablespoon thyme and 1 1/2 teaspoons parsley; cook and stir 1 minute.
Pour dry sherry into skillet. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil 2 minutes or until sherry is reduced by about half. Cool slightly.
Cut beef tenderloin lengthwise. (Do not cut all the way through). Open up beef; cover with plastic or waxed paper. Pound using meat mallet to 1/2-inch thickness.
Stir bread crumbs into mushroom mixture; spread evenly onto center of beef, leaving 1-inch border around edges. Roll up beef jelly-roll style. Secure with kitchen string at 1-inch intervals. Place beef on rack in shallow roasting pan.
Combine remaining 2 teaspoons oil, 2 cloves garlic, salt and pepper in small bowl. Rub mixture evenly over beef.
