Ingredients

  • 2 Eggs,

Instructions
  1. 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.
  2. While the sausage is cooking toast the pecans on a baking sheet in a 400* oven for 7-10 min until fragrant.
  3. 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.
  4. Cut the cornbread into bite size pieces and then add to the bowl with everything else. In a small bowl add the eggs and scramble them with a fork then add the apple cider and maple syrup.
  5. Pour the mixture over everything in the bowl. Gently toss the cornbread mixture with the eggs until evenly combined. Pour the Apple Pecan Maple Sausage Cornbread Stuffing into a casserole dish and bake at 375* for 3o min until golden brown.
