1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
.1 egg, beaten
1/4 can of chicken broth

Soften the butter and cut into cubes. Toss the butter, diced onion and celery with the dried bread. Sprinkle the sage, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper over the bread and toss.
Drizzle half of the beaten egg over the bread. Toss the bread, the drizzle the other half of the egg over the bread. Drizzle the chicken broth over the stuffing.
