Recipe by alligirl
Captain Phil Harris of "Deadliest Catch" made this recipe on the series "After the Catch"; I thought they looked interesting. I would suggest garlic and herb cream cheese, Aloette or Boursin, though you may use what you have handy and suits you. I would think more shredded cheese would be necessary for 40 mushroom caps also. Taken from Discovery.com.

These are very good! I used light chive & onion cream cheese and sharp cheddar on top. I did make a change to the baking method - instead of baking, filling, then broiling, I just filled, topped, and baked for 15 minutes at 350. The filling was piping hot and though the mushrooms still had a little "tooth" to them, I liked them that way. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
- 36 -40 medium white mushrooms
- 8 ounces cream cheese, flavored, softened (or spreadable cheese)
