Jäger Sauce (Mushroom Hunter Sauce)

It took me couple of tries to get close enough in recreating a recipe for Jager Sauce which I tried in local German restaurant.

I must say I love how it turned out: creamy, mushroomy with a hint of wine and a little more than a hint of smoked bacon.

Traditionally, Jager Sauce is being served with schnitzels.

And I found it works great with meat roasts and fried meat, as well as with any kind of potato sides.
