YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS STUFFING. This recipe is so good, we secretly want to make it all through the year. It’s really darn delicious and a little bit naughty, but that’s what Thanksgiving is for, right?!

Gaby‘s stuffing is SO easy to make and SO yummy. The wild mushrooms and leeks get a bit caramelized, and then, when you bake it up with the French bread, you’ve just got some golden perfection going on. Whoa. It’s goooood.

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spread bread on large, rimmed baking sheet. Bake until bread is dry, about 15 minutes. Cool.

2. Melt butter in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil. Add mushrooms, and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes. Add leeks, green onions, all the herbs, garlic, salt, and pepper, and sauté until leeks are tender, 6 to 8 minutes more.

3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously grease a large skillet or baking dish. Place bread cubes in very large bowl. Add warm vegetable mixture; toss to combine.

4. Whisk eggs and ¾ cup broth in medium bowl. Add egg mixture to stuffing, and toss to coat. Mix in Parmesan.
