Let's get grilling

1 Pre-heat recteq grill or wood pellet grillto 375°F.
2 Scatter bread on a rimmed baking sheet. Toast until golden brown, tossing once, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely. (DO AHEAD: Bread can be toasted 1 day ahead. Store airtight at room temperature).
3 Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet at 400°F. Add sausage and break up into smaller pieces until browned and cooked through (8–10 minutes).
4 Melt 2 tbsp butter in the same skillet, add the onion and fennel, and cook, stirring occasionally until soft (10–12 minutes).
5 Butter a shallow baking dish.
6 Whisk eggs to blend in a large bowl; whisk in broth. Stir in sausage, the onion-fennel mixture, spinach, salt, pepper, and fennel seeds. Add bread; toss until evenly distributed and bread has absorbed the liquid. Transfer to prepared dish; dot with remaining 2 tbsp butter.
7 Cook until stuffing is hot and the top is golden brown (about 40 minutes).
