2 Portabello Mushrooms
Wash mushrooms and pat dry. Remove the stems and chop fine. Brown the sausage with the diced onions and garlic. Add the chopped stems to the sausage mixture. Stir in mustard after sausage and onions are browned. Fill the mushroom caps with the sausage mixture and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.

Wasabi Mashed Potatoes 

4 large russet potatoes, cubed
1 small onion, diced
2 Tbs. minced ginger
4 oz. Cream Cheese
1 c. half & half
3 Tbs. Claim Jumper
1/2 stick butter, cubed
Salt & Pepper to taste
Place potatoes in large pan, cover with water and boil until very soft.
Add onion, ginger, cream cheese, Claim Jumper, butter and 1/2 C. half & half.  Beat until smooth. Add enough remaining half & half for desired consistency.
By using the cream cheese, potatoes can be made ahead and reheated with fluffy results.
