  1. Process mushrooms, onion, and garlic in a blender until mixture is pureed. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the mushroom paste in the melted butter until smooth.
  2. Melt 2 more tablespoons butter in a separate saucepan over medium heat; gradually sprinkle flour into the melted butter, stirring continually. Whisk half-and-half into the flour paste; cook and stir until the sauce is thick and smooth, 4 to 5 minutes. Whisk mushroom mixture into sauce and cook until sauce has thickened a bit more, about 10 minutes. Stir cheese into the sauce; cook until the cheese melts, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.

Tasty base recipe. The garlic was really overpowering! I added more mushrooms to try and mute the garlic. I did also sneak in a couple additional veggies into the blender. The kids ate it an...

It had a nice mushroom taste but as it cooled all it tasted like was cheese, but that was fine the problem I had was that it turned out to thick and turned into a giant sauce blob.

This is delicious! Cut everything by half except mushrooms and cheese. Used portobello mushrooms and cornstarch instead of flour. No need for so much butter, I used 4 tsp instead of 4 Tbsp. Wil...

I have done this many times and it is delicious! With relatively easy steps it was like eating at a restaurant (and I'm not a great cook). Goes well with a dirty martini! ;)

This sauce is amazing! I literally wanted to bathe in it. It was difficult to stop myself from eating it by the spoonful! I wouldn't change a thing.
