Cremini Mushroom Dressing has baby portabellas and is all wrapped up in a casserole. Rich flavors makes this recipe a Thanksgiving perennial favorite.
Mushroom dressing is one of my favorite side dishes. I was hoping to make a new dressing this year that had rich moist flavors that everyone would love. Well, this is it.
The recipe is loaded with baby portabellas and the main spice is sage. The sage really puts it over the edge. This is a super simple casserole and since dressing freezes so perfectly it is a great dish to make in large quantities.
This year I bought extra boxes of Herbed Stuffing Mix so that I can make it throughout the year. True, I freeze it in small batches for lunch but it still goes too fast. Well, not this year.
Give Cremini Mushroom Dressing a try because I think it will become one of your perennial favorites too.

Leftovers freeze beautifully. I will make this recipe just to freeze in single sized servings. It heats so quickly in the microwave and is a really tasty snack or lunch.
Let cool to room temperature.
Cover with plastic wrap and then slide into a freezer bag. If you want to put the stuffing into small containers then follow one of the directions as defined in my article Preparing Food for the Freezer
TO PREPARE AFTER FREEZING:
Remove from the freezer and put in the refrigerator to defrost from 4 to 6 hours.
The night of serving –
Place the dressing in a microwavable safe bowl and heat on high for about 2 to 3 minutes stirring every minute.
Ready to serve.
