Artichoke Parmesan Stuffing


XmasCenterPiece01

This recipe is one of my all-time Holiday favorites! I have to make this at least ONCE during the Holiday season! One of the things I love about this recipe is that serving it with gravy is optional; it’s good either way.  I certainly hope you find this recipe intriguing enough to try and enjoy.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

What you will need….

1 loaf of bread of your choice (I like to use a good sour dough and/or garlic/olive loaf), sliced and torn into pieces in a large bowl

1 Tablespoon of butter

1 lb of sliced mushrooms

1 cup of sliced celery

1 onion, chopped

1/2 cup of shoestring carrots

2 (copious) tablespoons of minced garlic

2 jars of marinated artichoke hearts (reserve liquid to add with the broth)

2 cups of chicken broth

1 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese (actually, I like to mix it up a bit by using shredded Asiago and shaved Parmesan together for a fuller, nuttier flavor)

1 1/2 teaspoon Poultry Seasoning

1 1/2 Tablespoons of Rosemary (or, if you are growing it like I am, three sprigs of fresh Rosemary)

1/2 teaspoon each: parsley, sage and thyme (is their a song ringing in your head yet?…Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme….)

2 tins of smoked oysters

2 large eggs

Salt and pepper to taste

Let’s make it!

* Heat butter in a skillet and saute the mushrooms, celery, onions, carrots and garlic for a couple minutes.

* Pour veggies and garlic into the large bowl with the bread pieces in it.

* Add in the artichoke hearts, smoked oysters, cheese and seasonings and mix all of it well (I’m a “hands on” kind of person)

*Add in the eggs and mix well, again.

*Pour the bread mixture into an oiled oven-safe casserole dish.

*Bake for about 50 minutes.

~ For moist stuffing, cover with foil; for crusty stuffing, don’t cover.

~ This recipe can also be cooked in a crock pot

~ The smoked oysters are optional.

~ The recipe can be prepared ahead and baked when you are ready to cook it.  Just, please, keep it refrigerated.

  1. Hi there are using WordPress for your site platform?

    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own.
    Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

    • Yes, I am using WordPress for my platform and I love it! They have a nice tutorial you can use to build your site with and many free themes plus great premium themes. I did take some online courses to learn a little HTML to POP my pieces a little more. I’m slowly working on my older posts that way. Learn with the tutorials first. Build and then learn how to POP your posts. That’s where I am at now.

    • There are several ways to follow my site. 1. There is a “follow” button on the menu to the right of my “about” writing. You can save the site to your browser and I’m sure the new phones have other ways of following. Since I’m fairly new at this, I’m learning more ways to get my content out their for readers to enjoy, but I do a lot more than just write and post. I have to be out there to gather content (photos and experiences)…..Just bookmark my site and visit it. That’s the simplest way. In the meantime, I’ll work on making that a little easier for the reader.
