I had these a looong time ago at a restaurant in Eugene, Oregon and loved them. The cream cheese makes them rich and delicious.

You can easily alter the amounts to suit the number of people you are trying to feed. This recipe quantity made 2 large portions (could have easily been 3 appropriately sized servings).
