Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sausage can be hot or mild.
  2. Combine all ingredients except corn meal, milk, and eggs in 5 or 6 quart pan.
  3. Cook over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add corn meal, milk, and eggs.
  5. Cook an additional 15 minutes, stirring often, since it can stick.
  6. Pour into 2 greased (or sprayed) baking dishes (9x13 ish; this isn't critical; it can be in slightly smaller ones, but baking time may be slightly longer)
  7. Bake in 350 oven for about 30 minutes, until well set. Let sit for 5 minutes or so before cutting. Consistency should be just slightly less firm than cornbread.
