2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine
2 (4-ounce) links sweet Italian turkey sausage, crumbled
2 cups chopped onion
2 cups chopped fennel bulb
1/2 cup chopped celery
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme

12 cups (1-inch) cubed French bread (about 1[1-pound] loaf)
1 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 375°.

Melt the butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook 4 minutes or until browned. Add chopped onion, fennel, celery, and garlic; sauté 8 minutes. Stir in broth and next 4 ingredients (broth through salt), scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Remove from heat. Stir in bread, green onions, and egg.
