2 packages of white button mushrooms
1 tbs minced garlic
1 log (8 oz) goat cheese
1 tbs chopped chives
1 tbs parsley (plus extra for garnish)
¼ cup crushed pork rinds
¼ cup parmesan cheese
1 package cherry tomatoes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend garlic, goat cheese, chives, pork rinds, parsley, and parmesan in a food processor until well blended. Hollow out button mushrooms, removing stems. Scoop large dollop of cheese mixture and fill mushrooms. Place on olive oil coated baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
