"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali
1 chicken (cook and pick) 1 loaf bread (crumb) 1/2 c. chopped celery 1 onion diced 2 eggs 1/2 c. milk 1/2 stick butter salt & pepper 1 Tbsp. sage
Mix all together using part of the broth from chicken and water to moisten. Have it pretty moist. Spread in cake pan and bake 1 hour covered at 350º. Take cover off and bake 10-15 minutes longer to brown top.
