Before we get to this hearty Buttermilk Sausage Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread recipe, let’s talk. We just need to make one thing clear before we get any further with this recipe. I’m from the South and in the South cornbread is cooked in a cast-iron skillet. That’s the rule. That’s what my granny told me.

This cornbread is bursting with flavor. I like to serve it with a simple side salad. That’s it, that’s your complete meal. Easy peasy, simple and faster than driving for take-out!
Buttermilk Sausage Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread
- 1 lb pork sausage I like hot
- 2 cups cheddar cheese grated
- 1 c onion diced
- 1/3 c fresh jalapeno peppers minced
- 1 c buttermilk
- 1 c cream style corn
- 1 c plain corn meal
- 3 eggs beaten
- 2 T vegetable oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- Heat oven to 425 degrees.
- Brown sausage with onions and jalapenos. Remove from skillet and drain most of the fat out of the skillet.
- Place skillet in oven to preheat. I use a 12 inch cast iron skillet.
- In a bowl, mix buttermilk, corn, corn meal, eggs, oil, salt, soda and sausage mixture. Mix in half of the cheese.
- Pour into hot skillet, top with remaining cheese. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until cornbread is golden brown and cheese is melted.
- Remove to oven and allow to cool 5 to 10 minutes before cutting to keep it from falling apart.
