Melt butter in large skillet. Add onion, celery, and green pepper and cook until tender, about 15 minutes, adding mushrooms for the last few minutes. Combine with bread in mixing bowl; add seasonings, raisins, pecans, vegetable broth, and slightly beaten egg.
Stir well and pour in casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray. Bake covered for about 1 hour.
Don’t be afraid to add in some additional veggies and breadcrumbs. Tommy and I both agreed that we would chop up and add in some additional peppers, celery, onions, and perhaps carrots and cranberries for our next batch.
