I had whole mushrooms at home, which I needed to use before they spoiled, so I searched for recipes. I found this one, but had none of the other ingredients used to make it. The original recipe calls for goat cheese, and of course… I din’t have any, so I figured I would substitute with cream cheese. If I would’ve known these were so delicious, I would’ve made more! They are easy to make, and they make a fancy appetizer if you’re hosting a dinner party at home, or want to impress a date.
