serves 6 to 8
6 cups of your favorite cornbread, cubed
1/2 large onion, finely chopped
3 stalks celery, finely chopped
2 medium tart apples, diced (a firm, tart variety like Granny Smith)
1 pound mild Italian sausage
1 tablespoon sage
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup apple cider
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large skillet over medium heat brown sausage. Drain and set aside to cool.
Add cubed cornbread, onion, celery, apple, cooled sausage and seasonings to a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
Add slightly warmed or room temperature apple cider and chicken stock to the cornbread mixture, a little bit at a time, stir to combine mixture and just until moist. I tend to use my hands but you can use a spoon!
Pour mixture into a greased baking dish. Bake until cooked through about 35 to 40 minutes. The top will be crisp and golden brown. Enjoy!
