Wild Mushroom Stuffing
This Delicious Side Will Make Your Thanksgiving Dinner
Treat your family this Thanksgiving with Emeril's wild mushroom stuffing. This recipe is packed with flavor and simple to make.
In a bowl, soak the bread cubes in the milk.
In a saute pan, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp and fat has rendered. Add the onion, celery, and garlic and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring, until they have released their liquid and are soft, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the Marsala and cook until nearly evaporated. Remove from the heat and set aside until completely cooled.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and butter a 9-inch square baking dish.
Squeeze any excess milk from the bread and place the bread in a large mixing bowl. Add the egg, mushroom mixture, chopped thyme and oregano, and enough broth to moisten the stuffing. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish and then sprinkle with the breadcrumbs. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and continue to cook until lightly browned on top and heated throughout, 15 to 30 minutes longer.
