- 1 8- oz package Jones Dairy Farm Cherrywood Smoked Bacon, about 1/2 lb, cut into 1/4-inch slices
- 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
- 2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup fresh sage, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 loaf ciabatta bread, about 1 lb, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large skillet set over medium heat, brown the bacon until just golden. Remove bacon to a large mixing bowl.
- Add the onion and carrots to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent and the carrot is tender – about 8-10 minutes.
- Add the walnuts, sage and garlic and stir well. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Transfer the mixture to the mixing bowl with the bacon and stir well. Add the bread cubes and stir well.
- Drizzle the chicken broth into the mixing bowl and toss to combine. The bread should be lightly moistened. Sprinkle and pepper and add the eggs. Stir well. Transfer to a 9x13-inch glass baking dish.
- Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and broil for 4-6 minutes, until golden.
- Serve hot.
Want to reheat it? Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until hot.
