    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 10
    6 shallots, peeled and quartered
    4 clove(s) garlic, sliced
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee Select olive oil
    2 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee salt, divided
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee pepper, divided
    3 tbsp. butter
    1 lbs. mixed mushrooms, such as cremini, oyster, shiitake and portobello, halved and sliced crosswise
    ¼ c. Cognac
    1 ¾ c. Hy-Vee reduced-sodium chicken broth
    1 c. whipping cream
    8 ready-to-use cooked peeled chestnuts, quartered
    2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    2. Toss together shallots, garlic, oil, rosemary, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Transfer to parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Roast for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.
    3. Meanwhile, in large skillet, melt half of the butter over medium-high heat; sauté mushrooms and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in batches for 5 to 8 minutes or until golden, adding remaining butter as needed.
    4. Stir in Cognac; cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add broth and cream; bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer; add roasted shallot mixture and chestnuts. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until gravy thickens. Stir in parsley.
    5. Tip: Substitute brandy for Cognac if desired. Keep a lid handy when cooking with liquor. If Cognac start to flame while deglazing the pan, simply cover with lid to extinguish flame. Do not pour alcohol directly from the bottle.
