    "A delicious stuffing made primarily of wild mushrooms! The stuffing of the Northwest! Originally submitted to Button mushroom caps can be substituted if crimini mushrooms are not for sale in your local market." - Recipe from Christine L. on

      I first saw this recipe in the Nov. 1994 Bon Appetit issue. I've made this many times and everyone loves it. I live in Ca. so I use a crusty sourdough bread in place of egg bread. I don't remove the crust and to save a step I cut the bread up the day before, place on a cookie sheet, cover loosely with paper towels, and turn the bread at least twice. That way you don't have to toast it. Since hazelnuts are such a pain to husk, I have used pecans or pine nuts with excellent results. I think chestnuts would work well too. Use any combo of shrooms you want, I have used a combo of portabello, crimini, porcini and shitake. I also sub 1/4 cup of white wine for some of the chicken stock and add the wine and stock to the desired moistness I want, I don't like it mushy. This is a very tasty stuffing, try it and you will see! Thanks for posting, jesslems.

      Delicious! This takes a little while to make, but it is definately worth the time and effort. I used both shiitakes and creminis, and the flavor was great. The celery and hazelnuts add a nice crunchy texture. This is a real keeper! Thanks jesslems.
