The Baked Brie in Puff Pastry, or the excellent Stuffed Mushrooms with Baked Ham, both are tasty choices. For an extra special treat, a Martini would be absolutely delicious!

1 cup butter

1 large white onion, chopped

2 cups celery hearts, chopped

10 large fresh sage leaves, chopped

2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, chopped

2 sprigs of fresh marjoram, chopped

2-3 sprigs of fresh oregano, chopped

7 cups chicken stock

2 loaves French Bread or Italian Ciabatta Bread, sliced and cut into 1/2 inch cubes

1 teaspoon table salt

4 teaspoons fresh ground pepper corns

1 tablespoon poultry seasoning

On two large baking sheets place cubed French Bread or Ciabata Bread and spread evenly over baking sheets.

Bake in preheated 350 F oven until dry. About 5 - 10 minutes. Do not brown too much, we just want it to be dry.

Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

In a large pan on stove, melt butter, add onions and celery and cook over medium heat until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.

Add sage, rosemary, marjoram and oregano and stir to combine, cook 3 to 4 minutes.

Add 1/2 cup stock, and stir well. Cook for about 5 minutes, until liquid has reduced by half.

In large mixing bowl, add dried bread cubes and onion mixture stirring well.

Add salt, pepper and remaining chicken stock and mix until well combined. Mixture should be moist, add a bit of water or more stock if necessary. Stuff your bird.
