|2 tablespoons||Unsalted butter|
|1 small||Onion; minced|
|3||Cloves garlic; chopped|
|3||Stalks celery; diced|
|¾ cup||Apple or pear brandy|
|1 cup||Diced dried pears|
|3 cups||Diced French bread|
|½ cup||Chicken stock; up to 1|
|½ cup||Chopped toasted hazelnuts|
|2 teaspoons||Chopped fresh thyme; sage, and marjoram|
|½ teaspoon||Celery salt|
|Freshly ground black pepper|
Heat the butter in a large saute pan over high heat until hot. Add the onion, shallots, garlic, and celery and saute 3 to 4 minutes. Add the brandy and pears and cook until almost all the liquid is reduced and the mixture is dry, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool completely.
In a large mixing bowl toss together the diced bread and the onion mixture.
Add the eggs and mix well, then add just enough stock to moisten the stuffing. Add the hazelnuts, herbs, celery salt, and salt and pepper to taste, and mix well. Place the stuffing in a baking dish and cover with foil. Bake in a standard oven at 350ø or in a convection oven at 325ø for about 1 hour.
