Ingredients:
4 Tbsp. butter
3 ribs celery, chopped

2 cups low sodium chicken or turkey stock
Dash coarse salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Add apples and continue to cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes. Stir in egg, bread cubes and sage and mix until combined. Add chicken stock and season with salt and pepper.
