A Mushroom Sauce for everything!

An omelette smothered in a creamy mushroom sauce. A mushroom sauce for steak. A baked sweet potato stuffed to the brim with mushrooms in a creamy sauce.

I had all 3 of these on The List and no idea how I was going to share them all without a complete and utter creamy mushroom overload.

Solution: Just share the sauce and a bunch of ways to use it!

Jeez. Only took me 5 months to figure that out!!!🙄

Simple yet luxurious.

It’s simple to make but doesn’t call for any gourmet ingredients. You absolutely could just sauté up some mushrooms in a load of butter and stir through a gallon of cream.

But if you want one that stacks up to the great sauces of the world served at fine dining establishments, add wine and parmesan. These are the two ingredients that add an extra something-something to this sauce. Depth of flavour and savouriness (that’s umami, if you want to get technical 🙂 ).

Don’t worry if you can’t consume alcohol, just use more chicken or veg broth and be sure not to skip the parmesan!

    Meatballs! Use it for these baked Italian meatballs, chicken meatballs, or these Swedish Meatballs. (Makes enough sauce for one batch of meatballs);

  • Steamed vegetables – imagine steamed beans or asparagus with this Mushroom Sauce over it…

  • Outta-This-World-Mashed-Potatoes: It’s like mash and gravy.… but a million times better!

To be honest though, you could hand me a hunk of crusty bread and I’d be one happy girl. Imagine dunking hot crusty bread in this!!!! – Nagi x

If you eat in my house, this is what will be in front of you. Still as a statue (except for the odd flicker of a pink tongue). Unblinking. Silently willing you to break.

Very, very effective strategy.
