Sausage Cornbread Dressing With Apples and Pecans
Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
2 (6 ounce) package Martha White® Cotton Country® Cornbread Mix or Buttermilk Cornbread Mix, prepared according to package directions
2 cups crumbled biscuits or toasted bread cubes
1/2 pound pork sausage
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 1/2 cups chopped, unpeeled Granny Smith apples
3/4 cup coarsely chopped toasted pecans*
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 (14 1/2 ounces) can chicken broth
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a shallow 2 1/2-quart baking dish or pan with no-stick cooking spray. Coarsely crumble prepared cornbread. Place in large bowl. Add crumbled biscuits.
Cook sausage, celery and onions in large skillet over medium-high heat until sausage is browned and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
Add sausage mixture and all remaining ingredients to cornbread and biscuits. Mix well, stirring gently so cornbread does not crumble completely. Spoon into prepared baking dish.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.
TIP: *To toast pecans: Place pecans in dry nonstick skillet; cook over medium heat, shaking pan until nuts are lightly browned. Or place pecans in a baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring every five minutes, until lightly browned.
Yield: 8 to 10 servings
