I have a question about the recipe "What We Call Stuffing: Challah, Mushroom, and Celery" from MrsWheelbarrow. Is it possible to make this without an oven?

Hi Elena! What kind of heat source do you have? I wouldn't recommend making it in a microwave, as it will be very dense and gummy.

Wow. Never actually thought about that. Here’s the thing. This stuffing is stirred together with all precooked ingredients and no egg, so yes, you could eat it that way, but what about the crispy parts? The very best parts, in my experience! To get that beautiful crisp, why not cook it in a cast iron skillet!! Now, if you don’t have a stove? Put that skillet in the grill. #myworkhereisdone

Hi Merrill and MrsWheelbarrow,
Thank you for your suggestions. Unfortunately I'm currently living at a boarding school I teach at in France. My only cooking heat sources are the gas burners and my microwave. Lucky to be here in such a wonderful part of the world, unlucky in heat sources 😅
