This recipe uses Conecuh sausage. I don’t know that this sausage is available everywhere, as it may just be a regional one. If it is not available in your area, you can use your favorite smoked sausage or kielbasa.

With Conecuh sausage, onion and cheese, this moist cornbread recipe is substantial enough to serve as a meal on its own.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Conecuh sausage links, quartered and diced into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 Tb butter
  • 1 ½ c self-rising cornmeal
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp chili powder
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¾ c milk
  • ¼ c vegetable oil
  • 1 can (14 oz.) creamed style corn
  • 1 can (4 oz.) diced green chilies
  • 1 ½ c shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided

Instructions

  1. To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9x9 square baking dish, and set it aside for now.
  3. In a skillet, sauté the sausage and onion with the butter over medium-low heat until the onions are tender and the sausage is slightly browned. Transfer the sausage mixture to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess grease.
  4. In your mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, salt and chili powder.
  5. Stir in the eggs, milk, oil, creamed corn and green chilies.
  6. Add 1 cup of the shredded cheese and the sausage mixture. Fold it together.
  7. Spread the batter into your prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until it tests done with a toothpick in the center. If it begins to get too brown on top while it is baking, simply cover it with some aluminum foil for the remainder of the baking time.
  9. Enjoy!

Notes

If you can't find Conecuh sausage in your area, use your favorite smoked sausage or kielbasa.

  1. Love adding things to cornbread, I do it all the time….corn is a fav.so are onions & hot peppers…never tried it with these sausages, haven’t seen them in our stores, I bet TRADER JOE’S or JUNGLE JIM has it…..those are some great stores, do you have them in your area ? Looking forward to making this , a bowl of chili or even soup and you have your dinner …. I love one dish meals… and I’d rather have cornbread with soup or chili instead of crackers…..it’s so much better…..

  2. I love cornbread and with all your added ingredients this makes a hearty meal. I haven’t heard of the sausage you use, but I can see using other sausages would be tasty.
