Notes

* This is the cornbread recipe I used, but feel free to use whatever type of cornbread you prefer!

Instructions

  1. Slice the cornbread into small cubes, approximately 1 inch or smaller.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425. Lay the fennel bulb slices on a baking sheet and brush the maple syrup over the tops. Roast for 15 minutes or until lightly browned, then remove from oven.
  3. Reduce oven temp to 375.
  4. In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt 4 tbsp of butter, then add in the onion, sage, sausage, and montreal chicken seasoning. Cook for about 8 minutes until onion is softened and sausage is browned.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine cornbread chunks, sauteed onion and sausage, cranberries, and chicken broth. Pour it in a large casserole dish, then top with the fennel rounds and thin slices of butter (2 tbsp total).
  6. Bake for 30 minutes at 375.
