- 125 ml (½ cup) butter
- 25 l (9 cups) Belgian bread, cut into small cubes

- Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Cook the bread cubes for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until they are golden‑brown. Set aside on a plate.

- Add the celery and garlic. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently until the vegetables are tender.
- Put the bread cubes back into the pot. Add the thyme and parsley. Stir.
