Got this recipe from a friend at my birthday potluck. They were awesome.

You can use mild Italian or a Chirizo sausage for something a little different. You could also use goat cheese instead of the cream cheese

The caps can be made the day ahead of your party, covered and chilled.

You can also partially cook for 10 minutes and then freeze. To reheat, thaw caps and bake for 15 minutes.
