Thank you to Gooseberry Patch for providing a review copy of their “Hometown Harvest” cookbook so that I could share this stuffing recipe with you. All words and opinions are my own.
Growing up, Thanksgiving was always held at my maternal grandparents’ house. My grandparents, my great-grandmother, my parents and brothers, my aunt and uncle and their kids, plus any significant others or other guests would all end up split between their kitchen and dining room to share a meal. The food options were endless and not only was there no chance of anyone going hungry, most of the time there were enough leftovers sent home with each family to provide meals for three or four days.
Since starting a family of my own, Thanksgivings are now most often split between my husband’s Aunt’s house and our place. Depending on the location the items that I need to make can vary. This year, for example, we’re guests instead of hosts, so we’ll be bringing an appetizer, a side, and a dessert.
Sourdough Mushroom Stuffing Recipe
When I saw this recipe in the Gooseberry Patch “Hometown Harvest” cookbook, I knew I wanted to give it a test run as a possible Thanksgiving side. It was submitted by a fellow Kentuckian – Leah Dodson – and it combined sourdough bread and mushrooms, two foods we love. Having now had the opportunity to give it a try, I can say that it’s definitely a keeper.

The “Hometown Harvest” cookbook is packed with a number of fall-inspired recipes. Broken into 6 chapters – Hometown Pancake Breakfast, Church Social Soup Supper, Thanksgiving Dinner to Remember, Game Day Get-Together, Pumpkin Patch Sweets, Slow-Cooker Potluck Pleasers, and Over the River & Through the Woods – you’ll be sure to find the perfect recipe for every occasion. The Harvest Hot White Chocolate recipe may be my next selection, as it’s been uncommonly cold here lately.
