Black-eyed Pea Cornbread

Come on now you southern girls and give this one a try. I got it from my sister-in-law. It was a huge success with my family. This is almost a meal on its own. It is YUM-YUM.

Ingredients: 1lb pork sausage
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1 tsp salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 can cream style corn
1 can black-eyed peas (use the jalapeno black-eyed peas)
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped (optional-I used the kind in a jar)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Cook sausage and onion in a large skillet until sausage crumbles and browned. Drain and set aside. Combine cornmeal and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, beat eggs then add buttermilk and oil. Combine the dry and wet ingredients stirring until moistened. Stir in sausage and remaining ingredients. Pour into prepared dish. Bake at 350 for 50-55 mins or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Serves 8-12.

UGH,OH!!! I just lost my picture of the cooked cornbread, maybe I can find it and post it again...leave it to me to screw something up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TIP: to break-up the sausage after it is cooks use this little gadget. As the sausage cooks in the skillet with the onion, gently "rock it back and forth" in the sausage. Works like a charm.
