Sourdough Bread Stuffing

1 day-old sourdough baguette
1 medium white onion, diced
3 ribs celery, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
10 fresh sage leaves, chopped
3/4 cup toasted chopped walnuts
2 cups chicken or turkey stock
1/2 pound of butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Dice the baguette into 1-inch cubes. Spread out on a sheet pan and toast in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, until golden brown. Saute onions, celery and garlic in the butter until onions are soft and translucent. Add walnuts, bread, sage and coat with butter mixture. Add the stock a little at a time so the bread absorbs the liquid evenly.

Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let stuffing cool before putting it in the turkey. Stuffing may be baked in a greased casserole dish or baking pan for 30 minutes. Serves six
