Herbed Croissant Stuffing is everything you want in a holiday side. Flaky croissants are toasted until crispy. Aromatics, mushrooms, and herbs are sautéd, deglazed with white wine, and then layered with the croissants. Pour chicken stock over the top and bake until golden brown for a fluffy stuffing with a complex, buttery flavor. 


  • 8 croissants (bakery style)
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 large carrots, peeled & diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 8 oz mushrooms, diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 3 cups chicken stock 


  1. Preheat your oven to 400. Cube the croissants into 2-inch cubes and evenly arrange on a baking sheet. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until the croissants are perfectly toasted and golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in the onion, celery and carrots and sauté for several minutes. 
  3. Add in the diced mushrooms, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper and continue to sauté until the mushrooms are slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Deglaze the pan with the white wine and allow to simmer and reduce for a couple minutes. Remove from the heat. 
  4. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Working in layers, arrange a little bit of the vegetable mixture on the bottom of the pan, then add a layer of the cubed croissants on top of that. Keep layering until all the sautéd vegetables and croissants have been used. I like to save a little bit of the vegetable mixture for the top so that its colorful and peeking through. 
  5. If needed lightly press the croissants down into the baking dish if they are too fluffy. Evenly pour the chicken stock over the entire prepared stuffing, cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until the stuffing is golden brown and delicious. 
  6. Serve warm and enjoy!


  • If mushrooms are not desired, diced pancetta can be used instead.
  • Make this stuffing in advance by preparing and baking it completely, allowing it to cool, covering and storing in the refrigerator. Re-heat in the oven covered to retain moisture. The top can be broiled to get that crispy effect if desired.
