Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread bread on a large rimmed baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a medium bowl.

  • Add celery and onion. Cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add apple and cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes more. Transfer to the bowl with the sausage.

  • Add the toasted bread, herbs and salt to the bowl. Toss well. Drizzle broth and butter over the mixture and toss gently until evenly moistened. Divide the mixture between 2 6- to 8-ounce ramekins.

  • Cover the ramekins with foil. Place on a baking sheet and bake until heated through, about 30 minutes. If you want a crisp top, uncover the ramekins for the last 15 minutes of baking.


Equipment: 2 6- to 8-ounce ramekins

To make ahead: Prepare through Step 4; cool and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Let stand at room temperature for about 45 minutes before baking.
