1 Pre­heat oven to 180°C. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick fry­ing pan over medium-high heat. Cook pancetta, onion and gar­lic, stir­ring, for 5 min­utes, or un­til lightly caramelised. Add rose­mary and figs; cook, stir­ring, for 1–2 min­utes, or un­til fra­grant. 2 Add stock to pan and bring to the boil. Sim­mer for 3–4 min­utes, or un­til figs start to soften. 3 Mean­while, place bread and ¼ cup of pars­ley in a bowl. Add the fig mix­ture. Sea­son with black pep­per; set aside to cool slightly. 4 Once cooled, stir in the eggs. Trans­fer to an 8–cup ca­pac­ity bak­ing dish. Scat­ter with pine nuts and bake for 20 min­utes.
