Sausage Cornbread

Oh my goodness, Sausage Cornbread is awesome! Truly, this is one of the best cornbreads ever. This recipe starts with a moist and delicious Paula Deen recipe, but it has sausage added. Yum. It’s fairly easy to make and one of those recipes you can’t get enough of. It is real comfort food that you can make for breakfast or dinner.

Back in January, one of our care group members brought this cornbread for dinner. He told me that he followed Paula Deen’s recipe but added sausage to it. He brought the cornbread just hot out of the oven. Wow, it was so mouthwatering. I have to be honest with you. Before that night, I never ever thought about adding sausage to cornbread. Bacon, yes. Sweet potatoes, yes. Green chilies, yes. Ranch Dressing and bacon, yes. Creamed corn, yes. Molasses, yes. Jalapenos, yes. Maple and bacon, yes. Broccoli, yes. Boston Market copycat, yes. Honey and buttermilk, yes. Sausage, no-not-never-ever. 🙂

It’s been several months now, but I finally got around to making it. I actually made two batches of this cornbread. One batch was for our Friday night are group again. Yes, it was wolfed down by all. Then I took the other pan to a friend’s house who has an annual crawfish boil every year. It went over really well there too. It doesn’t take more than about 10 minutes to put together either. While the sausage is frying you can have the remaining ingredients mixed and then stir the cooked and drained sausage in last. It bakes up beautifully and tastes even better.

If you’re looking for a cornbread that will have you drooling, look no farther than this Sausage Cornbread. It really is fantastic and a recipe that your family and friends will enjoy down to the last crumb. 🙂

Ingredients
  

  • 6 tbsp. unsalted butter melted, plus butter for the baking dish
  • 1 cup stone-ground cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods)

  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten

Instructions
 

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, brown sausage.
  • Break into small clumps while frying.
  • Remove cooked sausage to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  • Pat sausage with paper towels to remove any excess grease; set aside.
  • Meanwhile, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt in a bowl.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Add eggs, buttermilk, melted butter and drained sausage and stir to combine.
  • Batter will be lumpy.
  • Grease an 9x13” glass baking dish with melted butter.
  • Pour cornbread batter into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes or until cornbread is golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Allow cornbread to cool 10 minutes before serving.

Notes

NOTE: The pork sausage was Mark’s addition. It was so good that’s the way we make it every time.
NOTE: If you prefer a sweeter cornbread, add an additional tablespoon or two of sugar.

    What a creative idea! I am a cooker but I have never heard about bread combines with corn and sausage. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’ll try this dish for my family. Can’t wait to see their reaction when they ate.
