Oh my goodness, this was bananas. I used fresh red peppers, onions and a mess of garlic instead of using frozen and I used Chipotle Tabasco. I served this with bacon and fruit salad. Thumbs up from all four of us. Crazy good. I loved how cheap this was to make. Really impressed. WTG, southernshoe! You impressed the socks off of me. Read More

Fun and easy recipe! Made this with the left over cornbread from Mom's Sweet Buttermilk Corn Bread recipe on this site. So many different things you can do with this such different veggies or meats. When the cornbread soaks up the juices from the cooking of the sausage it makes it really good. Read More

This was pretty good; I skipped the oil used fresh bell pepper and some spring onions and a couple mushrooms that I needed to use up (cooked them with the sausage) and added some muenster cheese with the eggs. While the eggs are being folded in with the sausage-cornbread mixture it is a globby mess but the ingredients parse themselves out again after the egg is cooked. I may try again with a stronger cheese. Read More

My goodness. I never thought cornbread could turn into such a delightful meal. This recipe is wonderful. I didn't use the oil recommended and I did fry up fresh red peppers and onions with the sausage. I now have to make more cornbread to repeat this recipe. Very easy delicious and a a new recipe for my rotation which my family has already requested. Read More
