Spread bread cubes on 2 large baking sheets; let sit on the counter overnight, or bake in a preheated 300°F oven until just dried, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

In a large skillet, heat oil and butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until very tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in shallots and celery and cook for 3 minutes more. Stir in parsley, mixed herbs, salt and pepper and transfer mixture to the bowl with bread. Stir in broth and let sit for a few minutes until liquid is absorbed.

If using to stuff a turkey, cool completely and follow stuffing directions for your recipe. If baking separately, preheat the oven to 350°F. Spoon stuffing into a large buttered baking dish. Smooth the top and bake until browned and crisp, about 50 minutes.
