  2. 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  3. 2½ cups chopped leek
  4. 2 cups chopped celery
  5. 2 apples, diced
  6. ½ cup chopped pecans

  9. 10 cups (1-inch cubes) day-old cornbread

  4. In a large bowl, combine cornbread, sausage, apple mixture, eggs, and broth; gently fold together until well combined. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
  5. Bake, uncovered, until top is golden brown and dressing is firm to the touch, approximately 45 minutes.
