By Your Market District Chefs

Serves: 12
Prep Time: 45 min.
Cook Time: 1 hr.

Directions:

Bring water to a boil in a medium sauce pot. Stir in millet, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cover pot and reduce heat to medium; cook for about 20 minutes until tender, adding cherries during the last few minutes of cooking. Fluff with fork and set aside.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic, onion and fennel for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned, reducing heat if necessary to prevent burning; add herbs and remaining salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place millet mixture, vegetables and bread in a large bowl. Whisk together eggs and broth in another bowl and pour over top. Mix well to coat and transfer to a greased 9x13-inch baking dish.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes, until internal temperature is 160°F. Makes 12 servings based on 1 cup per portion.

*Purchase bread ahead of time; cut into small cubes and spread on a sheet pan to dry for 1-2 days. If using fresh bread, dry in a 300°F oven for 20-25 minutes. More or less liquid may be needed depending on the dryness of the bread.
