The Recipe

Ingredients:

1 loaf of bread, day old + cut into 1/2" square cubes

1/2 stick butter, extra olive oil may be necessary for additional moisture when cooking

12 oz cremini mushrooms, finely diced

1 1/2 c. leeks, finely diced

5 stalks celery, finely diced

1 bulb fennel, finely diced

salt & pepper

2 tbsp fresh thyme, remove from stem

3 tbsp fresh sage, finely diced

6 cloves garlic, minced

3 eggs

2 1/4 c. chicken stock

4-6 knobs of butter


Instructions:

1) Prepare the bread: Preheat oven to 300F. Evenly spread bread cubes on a sheet pan or two. Bake and allow to dry out for 15-20 minutes or until crispy.

2) Sauté the mix-ins: In a large pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Toss in mushrooms, leeks, celery, fennel, salt and pepper. Cook for 6-8 minutes. Stirring occasionally. Toss in thyme, sage and garlic. Sauté for an additional 6-8 minutes until fully cooked and evenly combined.

3) Assemble the stuffing: In a large mixing bowl, crack and whisk eggs. Add in cooled vegetable mixture and stir to combine. Add in dried bread and chicken stock. Stir once more to fully incorporate the ingredients. Transfer into a greased baking dish and add knobs of butter on top, cover. Store in fridge for at least an hour until ready to bake.

Tip: Longer the stuffing sits, the tastier it gets! Sitting overnight is okay too!

4) Bake the stuffing: Put prepared dish into preheated oven, 350F, and bake until golden brown for 35-45 minutes.

5) Serve and enjoy!
