  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup or 100g Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese (reduced fat), shredded


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In an oven-safe skillet (I prefer cast iron), heat the oil, over medium heat and add the chopped onion and sauté, stirring occasionally until tender. Add the sliced mushrooms, cook and stir for 5 minutes. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring often. Slowly add the evaporated milk, stirring constantly, until combined. Bring it to a simmer.

  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
