Cheese and mushroom sauce


I am not a huge fan of sauces. I seldom order it, unless it is like part of the burger and they ask what sauce you would like on it or with chip or dip, but other than that, I steer far away from sauces.

When I make the crumbed chicken strips the other day, I wanted to dip them in something and I had some mushrooms just sitting in the fridge and I thought why not make mushroom sauce… who doesn’t love a good mushroom sauce???

I will tell you I was a bit freaked out while I made the sauce as I was using brown mushrooms and not white button mushrooms the sauce went brown I thought I was doing it wrong, but I stuck with it and what can I say.
