Mushroom, Onion, and Sage Stuffing

This mushroom, onion, and sage stuffing recipe is a great companion for roasted or grilled chicken, turkey, and pork dishes.

The great thing about making stuffing from scratch is you get a lot more flavor from good bread and fresh herbs than you can get from stuffing in a box or a bag.

The key to homemade stuffing is to either leave the bread our for a day or to toast it in the oven first to get the moisture out. This recipe works equally well as a dressing or stuffing.

This mushroom, onion, and sage stuffing recipe is a great companion for roasted or grilled chicken, turkey, and pork dishes. The great thing about making stuffing from scratch is you get a lot more flavor from good bread and fresh herbs than you can get from stuffing in a box or a bag. The key to homemade stuffing is to either leave the bread our for a day or to toast it in the oven first to get the moisture out. This recipe works equally well as a dressing or stuffing.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb French bread
  • 1-1/2 cups white onion diced
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 2 cups mushrooms chopped
  • 2 tsp garlic minced
  • 2 tsp sage minced
  • 1-1/2 tsp thyme minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions

  1. Cut or tear the bread into small bite-sized pieces and leave it out overnight to dry out or lightly toast it on a sheet pan in 350℉ oven for 10 minutes.
  2. Dice the onion and celery, mince the garlic, sage, and thyme, and chop up the mushrooms. Sauté the vegetables in the butter for 5 to 6 minutes to soften them up.
  3. In a small bowl whisk the eggs, stock, milk, salt, and pepper together.
  4. In a large bowl combine the bread, onion, and egg mixtures and let everything sit for 5 minutes, so the bread has time to absorb some of the liquid.
  5. Pour everything into a lightly greased baking dish and bake in a 350℉ oven for 40 to 45 minutes.
  6. The stuffing is done when everything is nicely browned and crispy on top.
