About this recipe:A delicious stuffing that features mushrooms, apples and herbs which will stuff a 5kg turkey or 2-3 chickens, depending on size. This recipe includes instructions for baking this stuffing as a separate dish but you can also use it immediately once all ingredients are mixed.
If you are cooking the stuffing, butter a 23x33cm baking dish and preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
Rinse, pat dry and quarter mushrooms. In large frying pan, heat the butter and add mushrooms, onion and celery; sauté 5 minutes and remove from heat. Stir in the mixed herbs, salt and pepper.
In large mixing bowl, combine breadcrumbs with stock and eggs, then add mushroom mixture, apples and parsley; mix well. You can use the mixture to stuff the bird (s) at this point or transfer the mixture to the baking dish.
Cover and bake for about 45 minutes. Remove cover and bake 15 minutes longer to brown the top.
