Ingredients
  Cream cheese 8 Ounce, softened
  Sour cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Grated parmesan cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Eggs 3
  Soft bread crumbs 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Shiitake mushrooms 2 Pound, cleaned, trimmed, and halved
  Onion 1⁄2 Large, coarsely chopped
  Minced garlic 1 Tablespoon
  Dried basil 2 Tablespoon
  Dried thyme 1 Tablespoon
  Dried oregano 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried rosemary 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
Directions

COMBINE THE CREAM CHEESE, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, and eggs in a food processor and process until smooth.
Put the bread crumbs in a large bowl and pour the cream cheese mixture over them.
Process the mushrooms, onion, and garlic in the food processor, pulsing until they are evenly chopped; you may need to work in batches.
Do not overprocess; the mushroom mixture should still be somewhat chunky.
Add it to the cream cheese mixture, followed by the basil, thyme, oregano, and rosemary.
Stir to mix well, adding a pinch of salt.
GENEROUSLY GREASE a 9-inch springform pan.
Line the bottom with a round of parchment paper and grease the paper.
Press the mushroom mixture evenly into the prepared pan, pressing it down evenly.
Top with a greased round of parchment paper, then cover the pan with foil.
Bake until a knife blade inserted in the center for a few seconds comes out hot, about 1 hour.
Serve either warm or chilled, cut into wedges.
