Ingredients (Serves 8)
  • 1 1/2 baguettes, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced thinly
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced thinly
  • 1lb bulk sweet Italian sausage
  • 12 pitted dates, sliced thinly
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Put the baguettes cut side down on a rimmed baking sheet, and place on the bottom rack of a cold oven.

  • Meanwhile place a large pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, onion and celery, then cook, stirring occasionally until the onions are translucent, about 8 minutes.
  • Add 4 cups of water and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and add bread cubes. Toss well to combine. Cover to keep warm. Serve straight from pan.
