Sausage Apple and Sage Stuffing Muffins

(5.0 Average )

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.

  • 3 sweet Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, finely diced
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Sage, Rubbed
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Perfect Pinch® Salt Free Original All-Purpose Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Black Pepper, Ground
  • 5 cups dry unseasoned bread cubes, such as packaged cubed stuffing
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup reduced sodium chicken broth


  • 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.
