  • 1 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbs unsalted Sweet Cream Butter
  • 4 Stalks of celery - cut into tiny pencil eraser size pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic - chopped
  • 2 Tbs fresh thyme
  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black ground pepper
  • 2-2 ½ cups chicken broth stock
  • 9 Cups cubed small cubes - about 1 inch sourdough bread toasted
  • Cup melted unsalted sweet cream butter
  • 3 large eggs - lightly beaten
  • 2 oz ham or turkey pieces - pencil eraser sized.
  • 3 boiled eggs - cut into slices.
  • 1 Tbs chopped fresh parsley


  • Preheat the oven to 375. Use cooking spray to prepare an 11x7 baking dish (9x12 will work too) Heat the olive oil and 2 Tbs of butter in a large iron or non stick skillet over medium heat till butter melts. Add the celery to the oil and cook until soft - about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 1 minute - until you can smell the garlic. Add the thyme, salt pepper and ½ cup of the broth and cook one more minute while stirring.
  • In a large bowl, combine the heated broth mix you just made with the bread cubes. Add in the additional melted butter, eggs, remaining 1 ½ cups broth and stir using your hands. Doesn’t really work good to use a spoon or a spatula. Fold in the pieces of meat (if any). Gently fold in the boiled egg slices and try to keep the slices as complete as possible.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared 11x7 dish (9x12 will work). Let stand for 15 minutes. Bake for 40-45 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and garnish with parsley.


If you like yours a little more wet then add more stock.
