Potato Filling

3 Tbl. butter or vegetable oil
3/4 cup chopped celery with leaves
1/2 cup chopped onion
Pinch of saffron threads
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
2 cups cooked mashed potatoes
2 cups white bread cubes
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Heat butter or oil in a skillet and sauté the celery, onion, saffron, parsley, salt, and pepper over medium heat until celery is tender, approximately 6 minutes. Mix with mashed potatoes, bread cubes, and milk until well blended. Pour into a buttered 2-quart soufflé dish and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.

Serves 6

This is soupy when mixed and bakes high and golden brown. Make swirls in the batter with a spoon before baking for that extra touch.
