Piggy Pudding

I must say, I think "Earl" was my muse when I decided to make this dish for the Paula Deen Celebrity Cook Along at Happier Than A Pig In Mud!  I was also impressed that it only needed three ingredients from the store, and I was able to whip it up in a "Jiffy". 

I used a maple pork sausage and 4 Granny Smith apples.  A boxed corn muffin mix prepared according to the package directions and it is ready to be baked.

I was impressed that I didn't need a stick of butter or a bar of cream cheese!  I am always looking for different breakfast or brunch dishes that are easy to put together as well as tasty, and I would definitely make this again.

Pure maple syrup would be divine, but I am cutting back on sugar so I used a maple agave and it was really good, too.  This recipe is from The Lady & Son's Savannah Country Cookbook by Paula H. Deen.


16 link pork sausages
4-5 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced
one 7 1/2-ounce package corn bread mix (prepare batter according to directions on the package)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Cook sausages until done, piercing with a fork to let out fat.  Drain, then arrange in a 9-inch square baking dish.  Layer sliced apples on top.  Pour corn bread batter over all and bake for approximately 30 minutes  or until corn bread is done (mine took only 20 minutes) .  Serve with warm maple syrup.

  1. I used jiffy mixes while my son was growing up. It was a way for me to put a little something sweet on the cake plate with a busy schedule. I sill use the corn muffin mix when I'm running short on time. Great recipe.........I'm your newest follower......

  6. Piggy pudding is just too funny and such a perfect name for Lynn's contest. This sounds really different but really yummy. We used to make an apple and sausage casserole for Christmas that when I first heard about it I said, "Right!" but we loved it. We will have to try this fun hog like recipe.

  7. Hi Barbara,
    Sometimes I still by the Jiffy cornbread mix!
    Last spring I lost 15 pounds, but I am putting it back on!!! Oh!!!!!!!!!
    Have a nice weekend,
    un abbraccio!!

  8. Hello, my precious friend

    I don't know if my message for you has sent or not while blogger had been read-only mode. Well, what happened to blogger.

    I always love to know the recipes from your culture!!! I have a confession to make. I don't care for only cheese (^^;)
    See, I miss the valuable source of nutrition, haha.

  21. Hi Barbara~ ~It's so nice to meet you. Welcome to blogland! Thanks for stopping by and for the sweet note. I will be getting back to you about it. What sweet birds you have. I have always wanted to have a bird that talks. Not a good idea right now as I have a cat I love who would not let the poor bird alone. Have a lovely weekend.

  22. Hi Barbara! Oh, I'm sure going to make this piggy pudding. It sounds delicious! :)
    I don't know what agave is, but I'll take your word on it being good. :)
    Be a sweetie and have a wonderful weekend,
    Shelia ;)
