This creamy mushroom sauce can be served with chicken and poultry dishes as well as veal. It's made by adding sautéed mushrooms to a basic Suprême Sauce or Allemande Sauce.​

Note: There is another version of the mushroom sauce in classical cuisine, but it is a demi-glace-based sauce that can be served with meat and pork dishes. See the recipe for Mushroom Sauce I.
