1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Split ciabatta lengthwise; dice into ½-inch cubes. Spread out on a baking sheet. Bake on top rack until slightly dried out, about 7 minutes. Toss bread and continue to bake until crisp but not yet deeply browned, 7-9 minutes more. (Store toasted ciabatta uncovered at room temperature until ready to use. Covering creates moisture, which turns the bread soggy.)

2

Meanwhile, fill a large liquid measuring cup or bowl with 3¾ cups warm water. Stir in demi-glace and cranberries. Set aside.

3

Finely dice celery. Halve, peel, and mince shallots. Mince garlic. Finely chop sage leaves until you have 2 TBSP. Strip thyme leaves from stems; chop leaves until you have 1 TBSP. (Save remaining herbs for making gravy!) (JESSICA’S TIP: To give your stuffing a little extra Oh! What is that flavor? finely chop a jalapeño until you have 1 TBSP, then add to pan along with celery and shallot in the next step.) Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with 1 TBSP butter.

4

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned, 4-5 minutes. Stir in 3 TBSP butter until melted, then add celery, shallots, and a large pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies begin to soften and sausage is cooked through, 3 minutes. Stir in garlic, sage, and thyme. Cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Pour in cranberries and soaking liquid, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan. Bring mixture to a boil, then turn off heat.

5

Crack eggs into a small bowl; beat until blended. (You can also crack eggs into the liquid measuring cup or bowl from step 2.) In a large bowl, thoroughly combine toasted ciabatta and sausage and veggie mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool 1-2 minutes, then stir in beaten eggs until evenly distributed. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish. Dice 2 TBSP butter into small pieces; scatter on top of stuffing.

6

Coat a large piece of foil with cooking spray, then cover stuffing with the coated side down. Bake on middle rack for 15 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking until lightly browned and crisp on top, 15-20 minutes more. Remove from oven and let rest 5-10 minutes before serving.
