Makes: 1 cup

Cook time: 10 minutes

Direct Heat (cook on side burner or stove #2 dial setting)

What you'll need:

  • 250g size Velveeta brand cheese (1/2 lb)

Step 1:
Melt the butter over medium-high heat (#6 on stove dial) in a saute pan. When slightly bubbling add the sliced mushrooms.

Use a large enough pan so the mushrooms aren't crowded or they end up steaming instead of sauteing.

Stir the mushrooms frequently to evenly cover with the butter.

Step 2:
When the mushrooms appear cooked and slightly golden (8 - 10 minutes) then add the balsamic vinegar and stir.

Let the balsamic reduce for a couple minutes then add the Marsala cooking wine.

Let this reduce until the mushrooms and sauce become thicker and stickier (and very tasty, try one).

Set the cooked mushrooms aside.

Step 3:
Pour the milk in a small saucepan and begin melting the Velveeta brand cheese over low-medium heat. Cut the cheese into cubes to help it melt faster.

Watch this carefully and stir often so it's doesn't stick or burn to the pan.

When the sauce is melted then add the sauteed mushrooms.

Cover and keep on low heat until ready to use.

Try this thick cream cheese sauce recipe on your next grilled hamburger or pork chop, it's a great finishing touch.
