How to Make It

Step 1

Spread bread cubes in a single layer in 2 pans, each 10 by 15 inches. Bake in a 350° oven until toasted golden brown, about 25 minutes. Turn cubes over with a wide spatula occasionally. After 15 minutes, switch pan positions.

Step 2

Trim and discard discolored mushroom stem ends. Slice mushrooms.

Step 3

In a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over high heat, combine butter, mushrooms, onions, celery, and garlic. Stir often until vegetables are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Pour into a large bowl. Add a little broth to pan and stir to scrape browned bits free. Add to bowl.

Step 4

Pour 2 cups broth into bowl and add toasted bread, artichoke hearts, cheese, poultry seasoning, and rosemary; mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Make a well in dressing, add egg, beat with a fork to blend, then mix egg with dressing.

Step 5

Spoon into a shallow 3-quart (9- by 13-in.) casserole. For moist dressing, cover with foil; for crusty dressing, do not cover. Bake in a 325° to 350° oven until hot (at least 150° in center) or lightly browned, about 50 minutes (1 hour if chilled).

Better than my Mom's....(and everyone's Mom made the best stuffing, right? lol) Some traditional flavors in this one, but kicked up several notches, in my opinion, with the parm, rosemary and artichokes. Give it a try if you can break with tradition- I found this in Sunset, and I've made it for years and love it. (Use GOOD sourdough, one that you really like. Here in TX, we're sourdough challenged, and it's hard to find a good west coast-type sourdough.) Happy Thanksgiving!

This has been the majority or my families favorite recipe ever since it first came out when dinosaurs roamed the earth. We always make the stuffing and then we usually make a very old fashioned one cuz some just won't get with the program and see the error of their ways. The only problem with this recipe is that it, of course, relies on the artichoke hearts which can have slightly different marinade each time. We tried one year to wash off the marinade completely but that was not a good thing and made for very bland stuffing. No, there is nothing for it but to recognize that you will have a slightly different taste experience each time. And that can be good too.
