  • 1 pound pork sausage I like hot
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • cup jalapeno peppers fresh, minced
  • 1 cup buttermilk

    This easy recipe looks so delicious!
    I’m hosting a Birthday Brunch for my oldest son in a few short weeks, and I plan on making this dish.
    I can’t wait to try it!
    Thanks so much for sharing.
    Have a beautiful weekend,

  2. Before I scrolled down and read what you sometimes call this, I thought, “I could make this into supper.”
    Looks so good! I’m going to HAVE to put this one my menu soon. Visiting from Freedom Fridays.

    1. I totally wouldn’t know what to do without my skillets. I think I have 9 🙂 They are the first thing I reach for every time.

  3. Paula, I think I drooled a little as I scrolled down the page! I love cornbread and love adding things to it, but have never made anything as yummy as this that could be a meal itself. Love it!

  4. Yum!! This looks so amazing and great for an easy weeknight meal. Question: what size is your cast iron skillet? I assume it would be a 10 or 12 inch to hold all that deliciousness but just wanted to double check. Thanks!!

    1. ohhh, I thought I put the size in there, Yes, it’s a 12 inch skillet. Going to add that in the recipe now. That’s for alerting me to that, Meme.

  5. This looks incredible Paula! I love buttermilk cornbread but topping it with all this cheesy jalapeno awesomeness makes this even more irresistible 🙂 Pinning and thanks for sharing 🙂
