* Ensure the filling isn’t too close to edge of puff pastry, if you are making Chicken Pasties, to prevent it from oozing out when baking.
* This Filling Works great for cup pies and pizza
* For pizza, You can also opt to top it with peppers as well.
* The white sauce is a basic one I use, with Milk, Butter and Flour/Corn Starch and seasonings. (find my master white sauce recipe  Here on Blog 

* If you have Fussy eaters at home, The amount of mushrooms can be adjusted to your liking, or even omitted.

* Follow the exact same method if you prefer a Steak Version, But I make use of a Pepper Sauce instead of a Regular White Sauce.
