Question about stuffing/dressing

My husband spotted a stuffing recipe in the paper that he really wants me to fix. It's a sausage & mushroom stuffing with goat cheese, sour-dough bread, garlic, leeks, spices, herbs....all sounds good, right?
But then they call for 6 eggs and a quart of heavy cream. No broth.

So what do you all think? Have you ever heard of anything like this? Sounds like more of a savory bread pudding, to me.

Cooked in the bird? Or in a casserole? I've seen 'dressing' recipes like this that have a lot of eggs; in fact, some stuffing recipes have eggs in them, but you're right, this does sound like more of a bread pudding. Sounds yum, tho!

Marm, I just saw this. I've lots on my mind lately, so I'm about half-a-brick short.
This is cooked in a pan, separate from the turkey.
I don't do the stuffing-in-the-turkey thing. I like that crisp bottom, brown top, and juicy insides that you get from doing it in a pan.

Wouldn't it have almost a "quiche-like consistency"?

That's what I wondered, Licia. I think I'll use my regular basic dressing recipe and just change the ingredients around to include goodies that caught HB's eye.

That sounds like a very good compromise.

I dont think I'd do the eggs and cream. At least not for Thanksgiving, try it on a night when making something that turns out icky doesnt matter so much lol! I think I'd do what your doing, add the things that he thinks he'd like from the recipe to your regular ones. He probably doesnt know that you dont normally put eggs and cream in it!

I agree with jtl. Don't make something new for Thanksgiving. It could be disappointing. I know my family is looking for their traditional favorites this time of year but on any other night it might be great.

All the ingredients sound delish to me, Constance. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out.
