DIRECTIONS

  • To make the cornbread: Heat a well-greased 10-inch cast-iron skillet in a 450 degree oven for 6 minutes.
  • Meanwhile in a large bowl mix together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; stir in the eggs with melted butter and buttermilk; mix JUST until moistened.
  • Pour the batter into the hot skillet.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden.
  • Cool the cornbread completely, then cut into 1-inch cubes.
  • Arrange the cubes in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned; set aside or freeze until ready to use.
  • For the stuffing casserole; butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish and set oven to 350 degrees.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add in the chopped yellow onion, jalapeno pepper, garlic, celery and cumin; saute until the onions are tender.
  • Add in uncooked shrimp and chopped smoked sausage, green onions and corn; cook stirring constantly until the shrimp begins to turn pink.
  • Remove from heat (the shrimp will still be slightly raw!) add in cilantro, milk and eggs, then season with seasoned salt and black pepper.
  • Fold in the cornbread cubes; toss lightly to combine.
  • Spoon into prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes.
  • Delicious!
