  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Soak porcini mushrooms in 2 cups hot water until the mushrooms are soft, about 30 minutes. Reserve soaking liquid, and chop mushrooms coarsely.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Arrange bread cubes on baking sheets in a single layer. Bake until beginning to brown, about 15 minutes. Spread hazelnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  3. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook leeks, shallots, and crimini and shiitake mushrooms in the butter until tender, about 15 minutes. Mix in celery and porcini mushrooms, and cook for 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, and mix with toasted bread cubes and nuts. Season with parsley, thyme, sage, salt, and pepper. Stir in beaten eggs. Combine broth and 3/4 cup reserved porcini soaking liquid; add just enough broth mixture to the stuffing to moisten.
  4. Transfer stuffing to a buttered 10x15 inch baking dish. Cover with buttered foil, and bake in preheated oven until heated through, about 1 hour. Uncover, and bake until top is crisp, about 15 minutes.


  • Tip
  • If cooking in the bird, add a little less broth to the mixture, about 1/2 cup. The juices of the bird will keep the stuffing moist.

Guests with vastly different tastes *raved* about this at Thanksgiving! Wild Mushroom Stuffing is about to become an annual tradition in my home.

Based on looks alone I give this recipe 5 stars. My husband said it looked so professional, he loved the taste and couldn't get enough of it. Also I made this at Thanksgiving time and egg bread ...

Very good! We followed recipe exact - make sure you like mushrooms!

The only mistake I made with this one was not knowing how much one of my 2 guests hated mushrooms, but it was fantastic for the rest of us!

This was by far the best stuffing I have ever made or eaten! I recommend it wholeheartedly. I called all over town to get the egg bread and tracked down one bakery who had it in stock before T...
