Stuffing holds its own at the holiday table in the convenient form of a muffin. Loaded with all the traditional stuffing flavors – sage, apple and sweet sausage – they’re a close contender for “favorite Thanksgiving side.” Pop the muffins in the oven while you’re carving the turkey to guarantee they’re served hot and toasty at mealtime.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups lightly with no stick cooking spray or line with paper baking cups. Set aside.
Cook and crumble sausage in medium skillet on medium heat until no longer pink. Transfer sausage to large bowl. Add onion to same skillet; cook and stir on medium heat 2 to 3 minutes. Add celery and apple; cook and stir until just softened, about 5 minutes. Add sage, garlic powder, salt free seasoning and pepper; cook and stir 30 to 60 seconds or until fragrant. Transfer onion mixture to bowl with sausage. Add stuffing; do not mix.
Mix eggs and broth in medium bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Pour over stuffing mixture. Using a large spoon, mix well, moistening all of the stuffing.
Spoon stuffing mixture into the 12 greased muffin cups. Gently press the stuffing into the cups and form slightly mounded tops.
Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until golden. Cool 5 to 10 minutes in pan on wire rack. Run a knife or spatula around each cup to loosen stuffing muffins. Use a spoon to gently release muffins from the cups. Serve warm.
