  • 2 medium onions chopped
  • 6 stalks of celery chopped
  • 4 TB friendly fat to cook in butter, coconut oil, lard
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp sage
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste
  • 1 quart bone broth
  • 2 pastured eggs
  • 1 loaf about 12 cups torn up stale/dried out gluten free bread or sourdough of choice (this gluten free cornbread works well too! Make a double batch if you plan on using it for this recipe)


  • Saute the onion and celery in the friendly fat for about 5-7 minutes. Add a few pinches of salt to bring out their juices and sweeten.
  • Add the garlic and seasonings and cook for a minute.
  • Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Taste for seasoning/saltiness and add as needed. It should taste like a salty herbed soup.
  • Put the bread, egg, and broth mixture in a large mixing bowl and combine well.
  • Pour the bread mixture in the buttered 9x13 baking dish.
  • Bake COVERED for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.
  • Uncover the baking dish and bake another 25-30 minutes.
