1 package cornbread mix (I use Jiffy Cornbread mix, which is 8 1/2 ounces) prepared per directions, cooled and crumbled
1 pound country sage sausage, browned and drained
1/2 cup raisins or more?
1 can of apple pie filling, cut into small pieces
1 tablespoon sage, add more according to taste
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning, add more according to taste
1 (10 1/2-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
Add Sage and pepper to taste, I don�t use salt I like the sage & sweet apple raisin taste.
Mix some of the crumbled cornbread in a large bowl, add sausage, raisins, and apple pie filling. Mix well. Add seasonings. Pour in the cream of mushroom soup and stir well. Add the cornbread until you get the moisture consistency desired (like a paste, it shouldn�t fall off the spoon when up-side down.
Add to baking dish and bake, or inside a turkey, or better yet, add it to a butterfly-cut pork loin, roll back up and tie shut. Bake in oven uncovered until pork is done.

Had this quite a few times...very good and different around the Holidays.
