Ciabatta Stuffing with Chestnuts and Pancetta
Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Yield: 8 to 10 servings
User Rating: 5 star
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter
8 ounces pancetta, cut into 1/4-inch dice
2 large onions, finely chopped
2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
3 celery stalks, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 (7.4-ounce) jars roasted peeled whole chestnuts, coarsely broken
1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
1 pound day-old ciabatta bread, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 cup (or more) canned low-salt chicken broth
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 large eggs, beaten to blend
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter a 15 by 10 by 2-inch glass baking dish. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter
in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the pancetta and saute until
crisp and golden, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the
pancetta to a large bowl. Melt the remaining butter in the same skillet over
medium-high heat. Add the onions, carrots, celery, rosemary, and garlic.
Saute until the onions are very tender, about 12 minutes. Gently stir in the
chestnuts and parsley. Transfer the onion mixture to the large bowl with the
pancetta. Add the bread and Parmesan and toss to coat. Add enough broth to
the stuffing mixture to moisten. Season the stuffing, to taste, with salt
and pepper. Mix in the eggs.
Transfer the stuffing to the prepared dish. Cover with buttered foil,
buttered side down, and bake until the stuffing is heated through, about 30
minutes. Uncover and continue baking until the top is crisp and golden,
about 15 minutes longer.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to ALL :cheer: :laugh:
