What can I use in place of fresh marjoram? I want to make the recent winning Savory Mushroom Bread Pudding recipe and couldn't find marjoram anywhere.

What herbs would be a great alternative for the bread pudding?

I would sub fresh oregano if it's available. If not, my second choice would be dried marjoram. Dried marjoram might even be my first choice.

marjoram is related to oregano (same botanical genus), so if you have oregano and like it, that's a possibility.

Dried marjoram from a reliable source would also work fine in this recipe. Marjoram has such a lovely, distinctive taste. Despite having two marjoram bushes outside my kitchen door, I often use dried, when I'm being even more of a slacker than usual. ;o)

hi! i think you could use any combo of thyme, rosemary, and/or parsley with very tasty results.

or sage! which is a classic stuffing herb.
