Cut cornbread into 1 inch cubes. Spread on an ungreased baking sheet and toast.

In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in apples and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Add parsley, sage, thyme, salt and pepper and stir.

Whisk together eggs and broth in a medium bowl.

In a large bowl, combine the toasted corn bread cubes, bacon and apple/herb mixture. Stir until just moistened.

Transfer mixture to the oven-safe baking dish. Cover and cook for 30 minutes.
