Cornbread Sausage Muffin Recipe |

I wanted to come up with a new take on traditional Thanksgiving cornbread stuffing, so I created this cornbread sausage muffin recipe that is so delicious, it will be part of my Thanksgiving table from now on.

If you're looking for a new spin on Thanksgiving dinner, I recommend you try these muffins. They've got apples, onions, and celery, but the secret ingredient is the Johnsonville ground Italian sausage.

Happy Thanksgiving!

by Jillian Leslie on

Happy Thanksgiving from Jillian and

This year, I've been working on cultivating gratitude in my everyday life. I've found that when things feel tough, it brings a little bit of softening to my worries, and creates a little more space in those times of discomfort.

And when I get frustrated because there's so much more I want to do... to accomplish... to have... it's like a little reminder that says, "It's okay, Jill, it's really all okay, there's enough."
