Stuffing is an ideal dish: Savory and candy, crunchy and moist, hearty…and on this case wholesome.
So why will we make it solely yearly?
This recipe will change that.
Previously, I made stuffing sometimes, so I might by no means keep in mind:
Which makes a extra moist stuffing: Bread or cornbread?
Rosemary or thyme or sage?
How a lot broth? One recipe says 1/2 cup one other 1 1/2 cup for a similar quantity of bread?
Eggs or no eggs? Or in the event you’re vegan, do flax eggs work? (YES!)
Cowl within the oven or not?
So I got down to reply all these questions AND WRITE THEM DOWN for subsequent yr…with a purpose to excellent a moist (however crunchy on prime) flavorful (not bland) AND wholesome vegetarian stuffing.

So listed below are the ideas I’ll keep in mind for subsequent yr:
- Use BOTH bread and cornbread! Since this can be a wholesome stuffing recipe, I used complete grain French bread – which might make for a drier stuffing. However cornbread soaks up the broth and eggs after which distributes all through – so the stuffing is tremendous moist with the sweetness of cornbread. Use complete grain cornmeal (Deanna explains right here) in your cornbread recipe (or in a pinch – hey, I do know it occurs – use a cornbread combine.) You may as well use no matter leftover items of bread you’ve got, to keep away from meals waste.
- Rosemary, thyme & fennel seeds. My youngsters inform me sage “tastes like grime”, so I take advantage of rosemary, thyme plus, as a result of I believe one of the best a part of sausage is definitely the fennel seeds, I throw these in too. The candy fennel completely brings collectively the candy apples and carrots with the earthy mushrooms.
- Stir 2 crushed eggs into 1 1/2 cup vegetable broth after which toss with bread. Reserve 1/4-1/2 cup vegetable broth to drizzle on prime if dressing appears dry (mine did). Or in the event you do make-ahead dressing, save pour 1/2 cup of broth over the dressing earlier than baking.
- Cowl partially. To get a super-moist dressing (so it doesn’t want drenching in gravy) however nonetheless crispy on the perimeters, bake with a chunk of foil (sprayed with cooking spray) that’s about 1 inch too small for the baking dish on all sides. Take away it for the final 5 minutes of baking.
