Oysters Rockefeller Sourdough Stuffing
No sourdough? Substitute country white bread. Don't like oysters? Use quartered fresh cremini mushrooms instead. Can't find chervil? Try tarragon.
To make dry bread cubes, preheat oven to 300°F. Cut fresh bread into 1/2- to 1-inch cubes. Spread the bread cubes in one or two 15x10x1-inch baking pans. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes or until cubes are dry, stirring twice; cool. (The cubes will continue to dry and crisp as they cool.) Or let bread cubes stand, loosely covered, at room temperature for 8 to 12 hours.
To Make Ahead
Prepare as directed through Step 3. Cover with foil and chill for up to 24 hours. Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake, covered, for 40 minutes. Sprinkled with cheese. Bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes more or until heated through.
