    Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, onion powder, garlic powder, poultry seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In a large bowl, toss the bread cubes with the butter mixture. Spread the mixture in a large shallow baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes or until the bread cubes are toasted, stirring often. Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F.

    Meanwhile, in a medium-size saucepan, whisk together the broth, flour, marjoram, salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cook over moderate heat, whisking constantly, until mixture starts to thicken. Cook and whisk for 2 minutes more or until thickened. In a small bowl, slowly stir about 1/2 cup of the chicken broth mixture into the eggs, then return this mixture to the saucepan. Cook, whisking constantly, for 2 minutes or until mixture is thickened (do not boil).

    Spread half of the bread cubes in a lightly greased 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish. Top with the turkey and mushrooms, then with the remaining bread cubes. Pour chicken broth mixture over all. Bake covered for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5 minutes more or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean.
