  • 6 cups cubed pumpkin bread
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 cups chopped red onion
  • 2 cups sliced crimini mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons chicken broth

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Spread bread cubes on a baking sheet, and let dry overnight. Alternatively, heat in a 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) oven until dry, about 1 hour.
  2. 2 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter a 2 quart baking dish.

Season with rosemary, tarragon, chives, parsley, salt, and pepper. Fold in bread cubes, and add enough broth to moisten. Transfer to prepared dish, and cover with foil.

  1. This was great! I put it all in a pumpkin and baked for 1 hour. It was a great presentation and everyone loved it!!
  2. This recipe is fantastic! The savory and sweet mix is wonderful and I get upset when my guests eat it all (no leftovers for me). It surprisingly freezes well. I have been recruited to make this for my friend's yearly Canadian Thanksgiving. I decided to change it up a little bit. I cut the fat - Read more ...
  3. too sweet for stuffing
  4. Once a month we get together with my sister's family and have a cooking night with a theme. This most recent theme was pumpkin. This recipe intrigued me so I just had to make it. I used Pumpkin Bread IV from this site. I made a few minor changes all because it was what I - Read more ...
  5. My husband was raving about this stuffing that I served at a dinner party. I had some extra pumpkin bread so I thought I'd give it a try! Wonderful. I didn't add the mushrooms but added chopped walnuts instead. I would definitely recommend at least doubling the veggies added and adding a bit more chicken - Read more ...
  6. I made this as a side for Thanksgiving. I loved it and so did the family. I used Libby's Pumpkin Cranberry Bread bread recipe from this site (bread is excellent) and the cranberries in the stuffing were tasty pretty and festive. Wonderful blend of seasonings. I took the suggestion to double the vegetables(not the butter) - Read more ...

  8. I made this for an herb competition at the 2004 Iowa State Fair - I took 1st place - it was a huge hit with the judges and other competitors!! I substituted baby portabellas for cremini mushrooms and added a half cup of coarsely chopped and toasted pecans - YUMMY!!!!!!!
  9. This is the BEST dressing I have ever had. Using pumpkin bread was ingenious! I now want to try the same recipe using cranberry nut bread. I do suggest using a bit less allspice in the bread recipe though and I do think regular mushrooms would be just a good.
  10. Yum Yum Yum....this is an awesome recipe and I'm surprised with the unanimously good reviews that more people haven't checked it out (or at least reviewed it). Do yourself a favor.....I know it sounds different (and it IS) but it comes out tasting GREAT and not the "weird" different you might think. This is an - Read more ...
