Seven Grain Stuffing

La Madeleine Recipe

serves 8

1/4 lb. (one stick) unsalted butter
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced.
1/4 cup red apples, diced
1/8 cup celery, diced
1/2 lb. buttoned mushrooms, sliced thin
1/4 lb. raw bacon, diced
1 lb. old seven grain bread, diced
3 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons diced oregano
sea salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste

Place all but 1 tablespoon butter into a skillet. Add the onions, garlic, apples, and celery. Cook over medium heat...stirring while the onions turn translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and bacon and simmer until the mushrooms have released some of their liquid and the bacon is cooked (3 to 4 minutes). With the remaining butter, coat a medium sized baking pan, and place the stuffing in it. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until the stuffing is soft (about 35 minutes). Remove the foil and continue baking until the stuffing is crisp and golden on top (another 10 minutes).  Remove from oven and serve.
