Ingredients

  1. Check 6tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for the baking dish and foil
  2. Check 1 large loaf Italian bread (about 1 pound), cut into 3⁄4-inch pieces (about 16 cups)
  3. Check 2 medium onions, chopped
  4. Check 4 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  5. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  6. Check 1/2cup dry white wine
  7. Check 2 1/2cups low-sodium chicken broth
  8. Check 2 large eggs, beaten
  9. Check 1cup dried mission figs, chopped
  10. Check 1/2cup pine nuts
  11. Check 1tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Divide the bread between 2 rimmed baking sheets and bake until dry and crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, celery, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until very tender and beginning to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the wine and cook until evaporated, 2 to 4 minutes; transfer to a large bowl and let cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the bread, broth, eggs, figs, pine nuts, thyme, and ½ teaspoon salt to the vegetables and toss to combine. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Cover with buttered foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until browned, 20 to 30 minutes more.
