3 cups hot low-fat, reduced sodium chicken broth
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ cup dried cranberries or cherries, coarsely chopped
Kosher salt and fresh-ground pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375°F. Add bread to a large bowl.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and celery and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the walnuts and sauté for 2 minutes. Add in the sage and cook for one minute.
Add the onion-sage mixture to the bread. Pour the hot chicken broth and egg over the mixture, and mix well. Add in the cranberries or cherries. Season well with salt and pepper.
