  • 1  cup  chopped onion (1 large)
  • 6  tablespoons  butter
  • 1  cup  slivered almonds
  • 3/4  cup  snipped dried cherries
  • 2/3  cup  cooked ham, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 - 2  teaspoons  snipped fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2  teaspoon  cracked black pepper
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 12  cups  dry country-style whole wheat or white bread cubes*
  • 1 14 1/2 ounce can  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
Directions

1. In a large skillet cook squash, celery, and onion in hot butter over medium heat for 8 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring frequently. Stir in almonds. Cook for 4 minutes more or until starting to brown. Stir in cherries, ham, rosemary, pepper, and salt. Cook for 3 minutes more or until fragrant and heated through, stirring occasionally.

2. In a very large bowl combine squash mixture and bread cubes. Drizzle broth over bread mixture to moisten, tossing gently.

3. Lightly coat a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Transfer bread mixture to prepared cooker. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.

From the Test Kitchen*TEST KITCHEN TIP:
  • To make dry bread cubes, preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Cut 18 to 21 fresh bread slices into 1/2-inch cubes to yield 12 cups bread cubes. Spread cubes in two 15x10x1-inch baking pans. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until cubes are dry, stirring twice; cool. (Cubes will continue to dry and crisp as they cool.) Or let bread cubes stand, loosely covered, at room temperature for 8 to 12 hours.
TO MAKE AHEAD:
  • Prepare as directed through Step 2. Place mixture in a large bowl. Cover; chill for up to 24 hours. To serve, transfer mixture to prepared slow cooker. Cover; cook as directed.
