 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      tablespoons   butter or margarine
    1                    onion -- chopped
    1                    celery stalk -- diced
    1      cup           fresh bread cubes
    1      tablespoon    fresh thyme leaves
                         OR 1 teaspoon dried thyme
                         salt and pepper
    4                    trout, dressed (about 1/2 pound each)
    8                    bacon slices
                         celery leaves or parsley, for garnishing
 
 1.  Preheat the oven to 450° F.
 
 2.  Melt the butter or margarine in a frying pan.  Add onion and celery and
 cook until softened, about 5 minutes.  Remove the pan from the heat.  Add
 the bread cubes, thyme, and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Stir to
 mix well.
 
 3.  Season the cavity of each trout with salt and pepper.
 
 4.  Stuff each trout with the bread mixture, dividing it evenly among the
 fish.  If necessary, secure the openings with wooden toothpicks.
 
 5.  Wrap 2 bacon slices around each stuffed trout.  Arrange in a baking
 dish, in one layer.
 
 6.  Bake until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and the bacon
 is crisp, 35-40 minutes.  Serve garnished with celery leaves or sprigs of
 parsley.
