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

This recipe came by request from a reader. She saw a photo on social media and asked me to create a recipe from the photo. It wasn’t the first time I had done this, so I was happy to give it a go.

This cornbread has cheese, sauteed onion, and sausage, making this a very hearty bread…more like a main dish itself.

  • smoked sausage (I use beef)
  • small onion
  • butter
  • self-rising cornmeal
  • salt
  • chili powder

  • extra virgin olive oil (or vegetable oil)
  • creamed style corn, canned
  • diced green chilies, canned
  • shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • skillet
  • dish
  • paper towels
  • mixing bowl
  • 9″ square baking dish

Watch me make this recipe in the video below:

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 °(F).

Grease a 9×9 square baking dish, and set it aside for now.

Any time I am doing standard baking (not gluten-free/paleo) I coat all of my baking pans with my Baking Spray Replacement. I never have ANYTHING stick to the pans.

This recipe originally used 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. But nowadays I use a nice beef smoked sausage.

  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…..
