Sausage Cornbread Dressing with Apples and Pecans

Cornbread Sausage Stuffing:

Whether you call it Stuffing or Dressing, this side dish is a classic American holiday staple! I love plan stuffing and “dressed up” with additional flavors, so this one is a win!

Since this recipe has the added layer of flavor with the fruit and sausage, it's always fun to include it for Christmas Dinner.  We have regular cornbread stuffing at Thanksgiving, but if we are serving turkey at Christmas, it does need stuffing to go with it!

This recipe is a great spin on regular cornbread stuffing and looks so pretty on the table.

You could actually make this as a side dish for any special occasion. Who know's this could be a new Thanksgiving tradition in your home. How do you dress up your stuffing?
