Masala Mushrooms made with Knorr Steinpilz Soup Mix with homemade Polenta and Knorr Biscuits and Mushroom Gravy, Recipe ideas with Knorr Mushroom Soup Mix

Ok, so I sliced and sauteed 2 pkg of button mushroom in unsalted Lurpack butter from Denmark (1.5 Tbs on low to sweat them out then I let them dry up a bit to concentrate the flavor).

After the polenta is very stiff and when you think you should pour it out to cool, you kinda make it again! Yep, you add more liquid! This is usually when I will add the cream if I am going to use it. The mixture gets loose I will admit, but it tightens up again don't worry. This is the stage that I find really cooks the grains so they are full of moisture and creamy.
The Chef at one of the best restaurants in our county gave me that tip on how to make creamy polenta by adding the second round of liquid. Doing that extra cook allows the polenta to become the consistency to properly crisp up later because the interior stays super smooth and creamy!
I then picked about 3/4 a leftover roast chicken and then cut the meat into smaller pieces which I added to my Marsala Mushroom Chicken sauce.

Seasoning the polenta- I added about 1/4 tsp each of Italian fennel and porcini dust and about 6oz freshly grated Parmesan. I thought it needs a little more flavor so I added about 1/2 to 3/4 tsp truffle dust.
I don't know if I've mentioned this one thing we are particular about in our house,-seasoning- but I do tend to leave salt out altogether if I'm using anything that I haven't personally prepared and the Rotisserie chicken I'm using is from Costco so- I'm not adding much salt to this as the Knorr mix has a bit in it too.
I just need to heat up the polenta and see what everyone thinks of the results!

It was worth the wait! The gravy was thick and creamy I used the whole packet of soup mix and about half the liquid that it calls for as a soup.
This would be a great addition to a glamping trip menu.
