Ingredients

6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for buttering baking dish

4 celery stalks, finely chopped (about 2 cups)

3 small leeks, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)

10 ounces cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced (about 4 cups)

1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

One 12-ounce bag cubed sourdough stuffing

6 ounces pancetta, diced

4 large eggs, beaten

4 ounces goat cheese, chilled and crumbled into 1/2-inch pieces

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. 
  2. In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the celery and leeks and cook, stirring, until fragrant and softened, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, sage, thyme, salt and pepper and cook until the mushrooms are soft, 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth and scrape up any brown bits that have formed on the bottom of the skillet, cooking for an additional minute. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. 
  3. In a large bowl, combine the stuffing and cooled mixture. Add the pancetta and eggs and mix well. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and top evenly with the goat cheese. 
  4. Bake until golden brown on top, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
