One of my favorite mushroom sauce recipes! This is good even without the Parmesan, if you like a cheesy sauce then, also 3 minced garlic cloves may be added with the mushrooms --- I most always use this sauce with my Chicken Wellington (Puff Pastry-Wrapped Chicken) though it's great with anything :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 cups sliced button mushrooms
  • 2 -3 tablespoons butter
  • 12 cup flour
  • 12 cup butter
  • 2 12 cups chicken stock or 2 12 cups broth
  • 12 cup white wine (or use 3 cups chicken stock instead of the wine)
  • 12 cup whipping cream
  • 3 -4 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese (or to taste) (optional)
  • salt and pepper


  1. Saute the mushrooms in a couple tablespoon butter until they loose their moisture and are just beginning to brown (about 10-12 minutes) set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan cook the butter and flour over medium-high heat, whisking constantly until the mixture turns a light golden color (about 6-7 minutes).
  3. Whisk in the stock and wine, stirring until the mixture thickens.
  4. Lower heat and simmer for about 12-15 minutes.
  5. Add in the cream, and Parmesan cheese (if using) whisk until combined, then add in sauteed mushrooms; simmer for additional 5-7 minutes, or until the sauce coats the back of the spoon.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.

Followed this recipe exactly - quick & easy preparation - tasty sauce that can be used with a variety of foods - served it yesterday as a gravy for meatloaf/mashed potato dinner - will definitely continue to use

Awesome....added small amount of finely chopped onions too and use 1/2 and 1/2 as someone else mentioned. Used the gravy the next day over a round roast and let it cook in crockpot all day on low while at work......meat fell apart and put all of it over mashed was rock and roll!!!

Easy! I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of whipping cream. I think I will use chicken stock instead of the wine next time. I will add in a little salt too.
