   The recipe is from a cookbook I have on Amish and
   Mennonite cooking. It calls for a pinch of saffron but
   because of the astronomic cost of this spice I have
   always omitted it when making this recipe. Hope it’s
   similar to what you're looking for! 1.  Melt butter.
   Add celery and onion. Cook until tender.  Pour over
   bread cubes and mix well. 2.Combine saffron (if using)
   and boiling water. Add to bread and mix well. Add
   remaining ingredients to bread, mixing well after each
   addition. Finished product should be very moist.  Add
   more milk if necessary. 3. Turn into 2 well greased
   casserole dishes. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Note: I
   use one 9x13 pan instead of two smaller casseroles.
