1 pound baby portabella mushrooms
2 (8) ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup My Brother’s Roasted Tomato Salsa (divided)
1 cup panko crumbs
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup mayonnaise

Place on sided baking sheet in single layer. Mix panko crumbs, parmesan cheese, butter in small bowl. Top each mushroom with a spoonful of the crumb mixture pressing down gently into the cream cheese mixture. (Can be refrigerated up to one day ahead at this point) Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until heated through and just start to bubble.
While mushrooms are baking make cream sauce by whisking together ½ cup My Brother’s Roasted Tomato Salsa and mayonnaise. Set aside, or if making ahead, cover and refrigerate.

*Chef’s note: To take these up a notch, add bacon pieces to the cream cheese mixture!
