The holidays are my absolute favorite time of the year. Once it hits November, I find myself counting down until Thanksgiving, then Christmas and of course, New Year’s. With Thanksgiving only a couple weeks away, it’s time to plan the dinner! I have the usual dishes that I make every year, but I’m always open to trying new ones like these cornbread stuffing muffins. Whenever I make cornbread muffins, the muffins tend to be a little dry. Fortunately, these cornbread muffins are anything but dry! They far exceeded my expectations, so much so that I think I’ll be adding this recipe to Thanksgiving every year.
**Helpful tips and common mistakes
These muffins combine your bread and stuffing side dish into one and are ready within half the time. You can change the filling for the stuffing according to your preferences but I personally love the sausage and apple combination.
Just sauteing the onion and sausage mix reminds me of Thanksgiving already! Mix all together and pour into the muffin pans.
The muffins came out beautifully after exactly 12 minutes. You can line the muffin pans with muffin cups for easy removal or simply grease the pan.
These cornbread stuffing muffins are incredible! The muffins are moist with hints of sweet and salty from the apple and sausage. The toasted pecans add a subtle nuttiness to the muffins and add textural contrast to the baked good. These muffins are hands down the best cornbread muffins I’ve ever had. Trust me, you’re going to want to make these not just for Thanksgiving but for any other dinner!
