This flavorful, filling stuffing makes a decadent vegetarian holiday side.

Ingredients

8
cups 1/2-inch cubes ciabatta bread (from 1-lb loaf)
1/2
cup butter
1
cup diced shallots
1/2
cup diced celery
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1
lb cremini mushrooms, stemmed and thinly sliced
1
package (5.2 oz) peeled and roasted chestnuts, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
2
cups Progresso™ vegetable stock (from 32-oz carton)
2
eggs, slightly beaten
1/4
cup chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
2
tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/4
teaspoon grated nutmeg
1
cup shredded Gruyère cheese (4 oz)

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. Place cubed bread on ungreased cookie sheet; bake 10 to 15 minutes or until dry and crispy. Cool completely on cookie sheet.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 4-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Cook shallots, celery, salt and pepper in butter 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Increase heat to medium-high; add mushrooms, and cook 6 to 8 minutes longer or until mushrooms release juices and begin to brown. Stir in chestnuts and stock; heat to simmering. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, using spoon to release browned bits from bottom. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes.
  • 3 Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray; set aside. In large bowl, mix eggs, herbs and nutmeg. Stir in bread. Pour mushroom mixture over ingredients in bowl. Stir to combine. Pour into baking dish. Cover with foil; bake 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 12 to 15 minutes longer or until hot in center and top is browned and crispy. Top with cheese. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
Tips  

Can’t find creminis? Use your favorite wild mushrooms like morels or chanterelles, or even white button mushrooms instead.

Want to cut down on cutting board time? The shallots and celery can be pulsed in the food processor, but resist the temptation to throw the mushrooms in, too. The texture and look of the sliced mushrooms in the stuffing really adds to the dish’s appeal.
