"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 :)"
Serving Size: 1 (211 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"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 taters.......mmmmmmmmm.....it 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."
"Not sure what to put as rating, as it didn't come out right for me. I ended up with a dough like consistency when whisk flour & butter. Adding the wine & styock didn't improve matters much! I ended up adapting it to make a diff sauce, which turned out nice.
Have since realised where I went wrong! I should've added liquid a bit at a time and completely mixed in before adding next bit. Fab sauce!"
"Wow!! I used whole wheat flour, beef stock and ff half and half. Made this to go over hamburger steaks with squash from my garden. The best mushroom sauce I have ever eaten!"
"This was SUPER!! I followed it exactly as written except I had to use half-n-half in place of the whipping cream and I omitted the cheese. I served this on veal liver smothered in onions and mashed potatoes. This really made the meal. It's going to my tried and true file to be used again and again. Thank you for another fine recipe."
"Very good, I ended up using just milk instead of the whipping cream cause it was all I had on hand, but it still tasted yummy! Thanks!"
"This is very similar to a mushroom sauce I used to make years ago: one of those long-lost, sadly missed recipes that fond memory has made probably more flavoursome than it actually was! As I was wanting a sauce rather than a gravy, I used considerably less stock - I used my Recipe #135453 - but the full quota of wine. I also added some minced garlic in step 1. A KITTENCAL recipe without garlic: I was shocked! ;) I used Greek yoghurt instead of the cream and omitted the parmesan. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I shall be making it often to use with various dishes. Made on this occasion for Ali Baba's Babes for ZWT 5."
"Absolutely delicious!!! I was great with the Chicken Wellington and would be great on anything. So yummy!!"
"This is dern good! I did a skinny version using Smart Balance Light and FF Half & Half... and no one was the wiser! I also used what I had on hand - which included half portabella mushrooms which I actually thought added a great flavor! Fantastic over Recipe #79944"
"Unbelieveable! Made the sauce, then put in the crockpot with meatballs on low for a couple of hours. Got rave reviews as part of the Christmas dinner. I am making it again tomorrow."
"Absolutly wonderful! Will make again and again!!"
"Excellent gravy! I never seem to be able to get gravy to thicken but this thickened beautifully. I placed a nice amount on a plate then put Recipe#149540 on top of it, then put a little more over the puff pastry. Mmm!! The parmesan isn't optional in my opinion it REALLY brought out the flavor of the white wine for me."
"This was delicious - I made it with the Chicken Wellington (Puff Pastry-Wrapped Chicken). Thank you for sharing your recipes Kitten : )"
"This sauce was fabulous! My only complaint was that it did not turn golden brown even when i followed the recipe exactly. It's a good pasta sauce though. Thanks kittencal!"
"Fantastic as usual!!"
"Yum! Used with the Chicken wellington."
"This was awesome on steak, I have been searching the net for so long and have tried many but this is the one I will be using from now on. Heaps better than I have ever had in restuarants so do yourself a favour and try it! Hubby was thrilled."
"I adored this sauce; it was exactly how I thought it would be. It was earthy yet decadent and not TOO mushroomy for the Picky Ones who don't like to eat "fungus", but who actually conceded to eating half their plate this time. I served this sauce over cheese tortellini. I can't wait to make it again!"
"Skipped the salt as mine turned out slightly salty perhaps due to the chicken stock used. But the creamy golden color and texture were really appetising and did go so well with the wellington chicken! Thanks!"
