My mother-in-law passed down this very old recipe to my wife. The first time she made it, I was completely surprised. I had never heard of it, and I've been unable to find anything else quite like it. You can fix this as a side dish to a meal, or make it into muffins for snacks. Either way, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

  • Cook sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring until sausage is crumbly and no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

  • Mix cornmeal, flour, salt, and baking soda together in a large bowl.

  • Whisk buttermilk, oil, and eggs together in a small bowl. Add to the cornmeal mixture, stirring just until moistened. Stir in sausage mixture, black-eyed peas, Cheddar cheese, corn, green chile peppers, and pickled jalapeno peppers. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.

Yum, Yum, Yum! This is a very good recipe! I don't hand out 5 stars often, but this one deserved it! I added a little extra seasoning to my ground pork to make it a little extra spicy. Cooked as written and trust me you'll want the 9 x 13 size! Read More

This is delicious. I used regular sausage (not spicy) and omitted the jalapeños due to family requirements, but OMG it was good. Very moist. I cooked it 47 minutes and may cook it a little longer next time because the ingredients keep it moist. It was done though. The top had a little crunch to it. I put butter on top. Yummy. Read More
