Chef John

Maybe it's because meat is so expensive, but I find cooks get very conservative when it comes to choosing accompaniments for a steak dinner. No one ever got in trouble serving a baked potato, but sometimes you have to take a chance.

I did this as an accompaniment to Chef John's Steak Sandwich and WOW! We loved both. Did not change a thing. This will be a frequent side dish with beef in our household. Thanks so much for sharing!

We thought this was delicious! I actually had some leftover 'garlic and herb' breadsticks to use up, so I used them in place of the Italian bread (which worked out great), and omitted the thyme (we don't care for it). I added no other herbs b/c the bread had enough. This was very nice and super simple to put together. Hubby said that it sort of reminded him of stuffing, but more 'gourmet', and I agree! I think that you could use any herbs that you like and come out w/ something delicious. I didn't really have anything to serve this w/, I just made it b/c I needed to use up the bread, but I could totally see this going great w/ a steak dinner, as mentioned. I will def use this recipe again, and I can't wait to play around w/ the herbs/spices! Thanks for sharing. :)

Great side dish for grilled/broiled/baked beef meals. Made it like stuffing in a 9x13 in the oven. Used Blue Cheese since that's what I had and added a few baby bella's. Just make sure you add enough stock to keep it from drying out.
