Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spread bread cubes in single layer on a large baking sheet.
  3. Bake, stirring occasionally about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Transfer to a large bowl.
  5. In a large, heavy frying pan, melt the butter over medium high heat.
  6. When hot, add onions and cook, stirring occasionally until golden brown.
  7. About 20 minute.
  8. Reduce heat to medium and add the mushrooms and celery.
  9. Cook and stir until tender, about 8 minutes.
  10. Add this mixture to the bread cubes along with the parsley and tarragon.
  11. Add the stock to the pan you used to cook the onions, and bring to a boil scraping up any browned pieces.
  12. Add hot stock to the bread mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  13. Mix in the eggs.
  14. Either stuff the turkey and bake as usual or butter a 13X9 pan and spoon stuffing into pan.
  15. Cover with foil and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.
  16. Uncover and bake until top is golden brown, about 30 minutes longer.
  17. I think this is better baked in a pan by itself than stuffed into the turkey-- but to each his own!

Yummy!! I can't say I've ever heard of or have seen buttermilk bread before, so I subbed a farmers bread. I might add just a touch more chicken broth next time. :)

This is my favorite dressing to-date. Very good. I make all of the vegetables the day before, and finish the dish the next day - a big time saver.
