20 to 25 good-sized baby Portobello Mushrooms whole, cleaned
1 lb ground Sausage
3 Tablespoons chopped Onion
2 teaspoons chopped Garlic
2 Tablespoons fresh chopped Sage
1 teaspoon chopped Thyme
1 ½ cup Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
1 bottle robust Cabernet Sauvignon
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Pop stems out of mushroom caps.
3. Place caps on a baking dish face up.
4. Chop stems and set aside.

6. Stir in onion and stems and cook another 2 min.
