Ingredients

  • 1 pound Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Whole Grain Bread (about 13 slices)
  • 4 ounces turkey sausage
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 yellow onion large, chopped
  • 3 carrots large, peeled and chopped
  • 4 celery stalks chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped sage leaves
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cut the bread into 1-inch pieces. Place them on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven until crisp, about 20 minutes. Remove the bread from the oven and let cool.
  • Meanwhile, cook turkey sausage in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove it and set aside.
  • Add the coconut oil to the sausage drippings. When melted,cook the onion, carrot, and celery over medium-high heat until softened, about10 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, fresh thyme, and sage to the pan. Cook for an additional minute, until fragrant.
  • Return the sausage to the vegetable mixture, along with the toasted bread pieces. Toss to combine.
  • Pour the chicken broth over the bread, shaking the pan to ensure the liquid fills in all the gaps. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes so the bread can absorb the liquid.
  • Cover the cast-iron skillet and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until the top is browned.
