  • Sausage can be hot or mild.
  • Combine all ingredients except corn meal, milk, and eggs in 5 or 6 quart pan.
  • Cook over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add corn meal, milk, and eggs.
  • Cook an additional 15 minutes, stirring often, since it can stick.
  • 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)
  • 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.
