I. Stuffing


2 packs Ministry of Mushrooms, Dried Oyster/Tropical Button Mushrooms
(Hydrated - Sliced/Diced/Chopped)
2 packs Ministry of Mushrooms, Fresh Oyster/Tropical Button Mushrooms (Sliced/Diced/Chopped))
2 baguettes, cut into 1-inch cubes
6 Tbsp butter
2 medium onions, diced
3 stalks celery, with leaves, diced
1 tsp salt, divided
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tbsp minced fresh thyme
2 Tbsp minced fresh sage
1 cup dry white wine
3 large eggs
2 1/2 cups vegetable stock
1/4 cup minced flat-leaf parsley


1. Soak the dried mushrooms in hot water for 2 hours. After, drain mushrooms and keep stock on the side.
2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 250° F. Arrange the bread cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 25 minutes to dry. Remove the bread from the oven and raise the oven temperature to 375° F.
3. In a wide pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions and celery along with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, garlic, thyme and sage and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms have halved in volume, about 8 minutes. Add the wine and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. There will still be liquid left in the pan. Remove from the heat to cool slightly.
3. In a very large bowl, beat the eggs with a fork until slightly frothy. Add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and the vegetable stock and stir to combine. Add the bread, the mushroom mixture and the parsley and stir to combine thoroughly. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the bread has absorbed all the liquid.
