  • Add celery, apples, onion, sage, thyme, and pepper to the pan. Sauté 10-12 minutes, stirring only occasionally so the fruit and vegetables have a chance to brown

  • Stir in stock
  • Pour skillet hash over the bread cubes in mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Add mixture to a buttered 9 x 13” baking dish and cover with foil.
