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 should you’re vegan, do flax eggs work? (YES!)
Cowl within the oven or not?

So listed here are the guidelines I’ll keep in mind for subsequent yr:
- Use BOTH bread and cornbread! Since it is a wholesome stuffing recipe, I used entire 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 entire 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 also use no matter leftover items of bread you’ve got, to keep away from meals waste.
- Rosemary, thyme & fennel seeds. My children inform me sage “tastes like filth”, so I exploit rosemary, thyme plus, as a result of I believe the very 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 overwhelmed 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 should 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 sides, bake with a bit 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.
