  • Summary

    The added step of drying the bread in the oven (rather than just using stale bread) allows the cubes to soak up even more of the fruit-infused chicken stock, as well as the flavors from the greens and sausage.

    Ingredients

    • 1 loaf (2 pounds) day-old country bread, crust removed and bread torn into 1-inch cubes
    • 4 cups chicken stock
    • 12 ounces prunes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 2 cups)
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more if needed
    • 2 bunches hearty leafy greens, such as kale, stemmed and coarsely chopped (about 8 cups)
    • 2 pounds sweet Italian sausage, casings removed, crumbled
    • 5 celery stalks, chopped
    • 4 carrots, chopped
    • 2 onions, chopped
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
