Ingredients:  
cooking spray
12 slice whole-wheat bread, or white bread, preferably day-old, cubed*
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp light butter
1 cup onion(s), diced

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a 4-quart shallow baking dish with cooking spray.


Arrange bread cubes on a large ungreased baking sheet in a single layer (use 2 baking sheets if there’s not enough room). Bake until lightly toasted, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove bread from oven and set aside; leave oven set to 350ºF.


Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil and butter together for 1 to 2 minutes. Add onion and celery; sauté until soft, about 3 minutes. Add thyme, sage, salt and pepper; stir to coat. Cook until herbs are fragrant, about 1 minute.


Transfer onion mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add bread, broth and chives; toss to combine. Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish and cover with foil; bake 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until top is golden brown, 15 minutes more. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
Notes
*Leave the bread bag open and somewhat uncovered for 1 to 2 days (at room temperature) before making the recipe.

You can make this stuffing in advance and bake it just before serving. The stuffing will last up to 3 days in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before baking as directed.

Feel free to substitute your favorite bread, such as whole grain, sourdough or a light variety

For added flavor, you can also add about 1 cup of diced Granny Smith or McIntosh apples to the stuffing
