  2. Place the butter into a heavy 2-quart pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions, celery, and bay leaves and cook for about 5 minutes while stirring.
  3. Add the stock and bring to a boil over high heat.
  4. Remove from the heat and add the Tabasco, nutmeg, clove, salt, and pepper to the stock mixture. Remove bay leaves.
  5. Transfer the toasted bread into a large bowl.
  6. Pour the stock over the bread and add the parsley, thyme and sage. Fold ingredients to combine and distribute flavors and moisture.
  7. Lightly grease a 2-quart casserole or heat-proof 13 x 9" glass dish with the oil.

Chef's Narrative

Rustic with a crusty top and moist interior. Add meat drippings and a splash of turkey broth prior to baking. Make it your own by changing the herbs or spices, add a favorite nut, apples, pears, quince too for some of the celery.

Recipe Substitutions

For a vegan version, use cider or low sodium vegetable broth.
