Servings 8 people
- 1 lb Italian Bread, day old, cut into small cubes
- 2 tbsp light butter
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 medium carrots, peeled and finely chopped
- 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
- 1 cup diced mushrooms
- 6 cloves garlic, minced, approximately 1 tablespoon
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp dried sage
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp salt, more or less, to taste
- 1/2 tsp black pepper, more or less, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9" x 13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
Place a large pan with butter over medium heat.
Once heated, add the onions, mushrooms, celery, and carrots. Sauté until the onions are translucent, approximately 6-8 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
Combine the sautéed vegetables with the cubes of bread into a large mixing bowl.
To a 2 cup (or larger) glass measuring cup or mixing bowl, add the eggs and whisk in the broth and seasonings.
Pour broth mixture into the large bowl of bread and vegetables. Toss to thoroughly coat every cube of bread.
Pour the stuffing mixture into the prepared baking dish, spreading out into an even layer. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes.
Remove foil and return to bake an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden and crispy.
Garnish with additional parsley or thyme. Serve warm.
