This stuffing works best with day-old bread, which doesn't shrink as much once the liquid is added. If you have a fresh loaf on hand, cut it into cubes and spread on a baking sheet, then toast in 350°F (180°C) oven until slightly crisp, about 10 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 leeks sliced
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 12 oz mixed mushrooms (such as oyster, cremini, portobello and chanterelle), sliced (about 6 cups)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 14 cups cubed multigrain bread
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/3 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth

Method

In saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat; cook leeks, celery and garlic, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in mushrooms; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add wine, salt and pepper; cook until almost no liquid remains. Transfer to bowl; stir in sage and rosemary.

Add bread and Parmesan cheese to bowl; toss to combine. Drizzle with broth; toss to moisten. Pour into greased 8-cup (2 L) baking dish. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours; bake, covered, for additional 10 minutes.)

Cover and bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until lightly toasted, about 15 minutes.
