Gluten-Free Mushroom Stuffing
Yield: 10 servings
Active Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours and 35 minutes
1 to 2 loaves Schar Gluten-Free Baguettes, cubed (about 10 cups)
2 ½ cups Pacific Foods Organic Mushroom Broth
2 large eggs
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
1 small fennel bulb, diced
1 pound assorted mushrooms, chopped
⅓ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 teaspoon ground sage
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
Scatter bread cubes on a rimmed baking sheet. Toast for 10 to 15 minutes, tossing occasionally, until the bread is dried out; let cool, then add cubes to a large bowl. While the bread bakes, whisk the broth and eggs in a small bowl.
Add ¼ cup oil to a large sauté pan on medium heat; sauté onions, celery and fennel for 5 to 7 minutes, or until tender, then scrape into the large bowl with the bread. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to the pan and sauté mushrooms until browned, about 4 to 6 minutes; add mushrooms to the bowl. Add the herbs, salt, pepper, and reserved broth and egg mixture to the bowl; gently toss until incorporated and all the ingredients are well-coated.
Carefully add stuffing to the baking dish and press down slightly with the back of a spoon. Cover with foil and bake 50 minutes, then remove foil and bake for another 30 to 40 minutes more, until top is browned. Let sit 10 minutes before serving.
