mushroom sausage stuffing

i usually make this stuffing for thanksgiving. it works fine with out any meat too.

i vaguely combined these two recipes:

time: 1 hour




  1. prep: preheat oven to 350F. cube the bread into small squares - make sure they’re pretty dry (not as dry as a crouton). if they aren’t dry, bake them for a few minutes (5-10m) while the oven heats up, or enough that they feel a bit drier. dice the onions, dice the celery, split the mushrooms into small parts (with a knife or your hands)

  2. sweat mushrooms: in a large pan, sweat mushrooms for 10m over medium low heat, set aside

  3. cook the meat: in the same pan, cook the sausage over medium heat until browned - then remove the meat with a slotted spoon, and save the leftover liquid for usage later

  4. cook vegetables: in a larger pot, over low-medium heat, melt the butter, add the meat liquid, then add in the celery, and onions, and cook those for a few minutes over medium heat until they’re starting to soften, maybe 5-10m. they shouldn’t get brown at all.

  5. combine: one at a time, add mushrooms, bread, sausage, broth, spices/seasonings to the pot. lower heat, and cook for 5-10m more minutes while mixing up the contents

  6. bake: transfer the contents to a deep baking dish, or use a dutch oven of sorts. bake at 350F for 30-45m depending on how dry/moist you prefer your stuffing.
