This stuffing is seriously amazing don’t get me wrong, but I think it would be best paired with a pork tenderloin or some cider glazed pork chops.  One of the girls at work even said that she would eat it at breakfast.  So think of this as the most versatile Thanksgiving stuffing you’ll ever make breakfast, lunch or dinner its delicious!

Ingredients:

1lb Maple Flavored Sausage

2 Apples, peeled and diced

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

2 Tablespoons Butter or Coconut Oil

1 Onion, Diced

1 Cup Pecans, halved

1 Sprig Fresh Rosemary, chopped

1 Teaspoon Ground Sage

1 9×13 pre-made pan of Sweet Honey Cornbread

2 Eggs,

1 Cup Apple Cider or Chicken Stock

1/4 Cup Maple Syrup (optional)

 

In a medium skillet brown the maple sausage using your spatula to make it into tiny bits much like you would when making taco’s.  One the meat is browned remove from the pan and place in a LARGE mixing bowl.

While the sausage is cooking toast the pecans on a baking sheet in a 400* oven for 7-10 min until fragrant.

Using the same pan that you just browned the sausage in add the apples, onion, butter and cinnamon.  Cook over medium/low heat until the onions are translucent and the apples are tender.  Remove the cooked apple onion mixture, and place it in the mixing bowl with the sausage.  Add the sage, rosemary, pecans.
