Jager Sauce - German Mushroom Gravy for Jagerschnitzel

October 13, 2021

We love Jagerschnitzel - which is Schnitzel topped with a mushroom gravy, called Jager Sauce or Hunter Sauce. German food is one of our favorites and this is just pure comfort food when paired with Spaetzle (German pasta) and Schnitzel (breaded pork or chicken). This gravy is easy to throw together and is also delicious on mashed potatoes too. Take your schnitzel to a whole other level and top it with this Jager Sauce! And make it Jagerschnitzle!
