Martha White has graciously given me permission to share with you some of my favorite recipes from the competition. So I’ll be doing that the rest of the week and then sending out an exclusive recipe in my email newsletter on Friday. If you don’t subscribe by email and would like to, just click here.

When I tasted today’s recipe, it was so good my eyes rolled back in my head.

This sounded like an odd combination to me at first, but this amazing cornbread dish ended up being another one of my dear favorites in the cornbread cook off. Think of it as a country danish, with a heavenly combination of peaches, cream cheese (here’s how to easily make homemade cream cheese), and maple sausage. I had to stop myself from asking for seconds!

The flavors blended perfectly and it’s one of those dishes that will impress and surprise your guests, I’ve never had anything like it but I’ll sure be having it from now on! If you have a brunch coming up, here is your showstopper dish.

  2. I made this for dinner with a slight change: I used apple pie filing since my husband *loathes* peaches. WOW! This was SO GOOD! I will make this again.

  3. And I grew up on blueberry corn bread, baked in a cast iron skillet. Peaches and cream cheese? I’m all for giving that a try!

  4. I’m not a sausage eater, either, but I’m trying this just on general principle! Green beans and maple sausage?! I’m making it just to say I did!

  5. This sounds really good to me! What other fruit besides peaches do you think would be good in this dish? My mom has a peach allergy but I’d love to make a version of this for us to try.

  6. (Deep Sigh) I know Jimmy Dean (bless his soul) has a Maple Sausage but it’s about as southern as a carpetbagger! Maple syrup is purely Northern. Southerns have Cane Syrup. Right? But, this recipe sounds “pea pickin good”. LOL
