Artisanal Bread Stuffing
  • 12  cups  1/2- to 3/4-inch cubes artisanal bread, such as rosemary, dried tomato, or cheese (about a 1-1/4-pound loaf)
  • 1/2  cup  pine nuts
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 6  tablespoons  butter
  • 4 1/2  cups  coarsely chopped, cored fennel (reserve leafy green tops for another use)
  • 1 1/2  cups  chopped onion
  • 1 1/2  cups  pitted and sliced kalamata olives
  • 3  tablespoons  snipped fresh thyme or 1 tablespoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 3/4  teaspoon  coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4  cups  chicken stock or broth

1. Place bread cubes and pine nuts in a large roasting pan. Toast in a 325 degrees F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until bread cubes are crisp and pine nuts are lightly browned, tossing once. Set aside to cool.

2. Meanwhile, lightly coat a 3-quart casserole with cooking spray; set aside. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add fennel and onion; cook about 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in the olives, thyme, and pepper. Transfer mixture to an extra-large bowl. Add bread cubes and pine nuts, tossing to combine. Add chicken stock, stirring until moistened.

3. Spoon bread mixture into prepared casserole. Cover with foil. Chill up to 24 hours.

4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Let stuffing stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Bake, covered, for about 1 hour or until heated through. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
