  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.
